After a discussion of the place and purpose of science in the elementary school, and of methods for integrating science topics with language, applied number, art, and social studies, an outline of topics suggested as suitable for children in the Victorian (Australia) elementary schools is given. Suggested teaching activites to develop skills in discrimination and classification, and concepts of interaction and change based on a study of matter, energy and life are listed. (More detailed discussions of techniques of these suggested topics can to be found in SE 012 719, SE 012 720, and SE 012721.) The teacher is encouraged to provide for differences in student interest and ability, and to develop the course through individual student activities. (AL)
