Science: A Unit on Microbiology; Curriculum Guide for Teaching Gifted Children Science in Grades Four Through Six.
The curriculum guide for teaching science to gifted intermediate grade students presents material to be used for a unit on microbiology, as well as suggestions for a second unit on the subject. Examined in the unit are the structures, functions, growth, development, uses, and environments of different kinds of microorganisms, with an emphasis on bacteria. The first section of the guide, intended for teachers, presents suggested instructional approaches for teaching microbiological concepts and covers both the range of subject matter content and behavioral objectives. The second section, Suggested Learning Activities, is addressed to the student and contains four sample lessons. The third section, meant to be used by both teacher and student, defines scientific and technical terms, presents certain aspects of the classification of microorganisms, and provides directions for 10 technical procedures used in the projects suggested in the guide. Also listed are some resources and references, and recommendations concerning further study in microbiology. (KW)
