Unit Messengers, First Trial Materials, Inspection Set, [Australian Science Education Project].
Australian Council for Educational Research, Hawthorn.
The Australian Science Education Project is producing material designed for use in grades 7-10 of Australian schools. This is the first trial version of a unit concerned with sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. The teacher's guide outlines the use of the two booklets ("Messengers" and "Use of the Senses") intended for all students, where students produce their own sense profiles by measuring optical resolution, near point, angle of vision, sound frequency range, judgment of sound duration and direction, taste sensitivity, texture and thickness discrimination, and reaction time, and suggests ways of using the optional activities included in the student booklets "How to Improve Your Observations,""How Sensitive Are You?,""Limits of Seeing,""How to be More Sense-ible," and"Senses in Other Living Things." Worksheets are provided for most activities. Included is an evaluation booklet with multiple choice and free response questions, some in a programmed format. (AL)
