The Egg-Eating Snake, Introductory Problem, Explorations in Biology.
Mid-Continent Regional Educational Lab., Inc., Kansas City, MO.
The booklet is designed as an introduction to a series of topics which use the same format, and which are published separately. A series of photographs of a snake eating an egg are used to ask students to identify a puzzling event that they would want to investigate if they were biologists. A scrambled programed text format is used to direct students to sets of questions concerning possible investigative procedures. Students are asked to indicate the order in which they would carry out a number of suggested steps in an investigation of the problem chosen. Some options include choosing and reading related literature; extracts from a number of works are included. These readings form the basis of additional questions. (AL)
