Nuclear Science Teaching Aids and Activities.
Woodburn, John H.
This publication is a sourcebook for science teachers. It provides guides for basic laboratory work in nuclear energy, suggesting various teacher and student demonstrations. Ideas for science clubs, science fairs, and project research seminars are presented. Problem-solving activities for both science and mathematics classes are included, as well as materials useful for social studies for training civil defense workers in the use of nuclear radiation instruments. Information is given which supplies historical data on atomic energy. An instructional unit, Protection from Radioactive Fallout, is included. A bibliography of publications embracing several aspects of the story of nuclear science and organized by grade levels is included, and a descriptive list of films is presented alphabetically by title. A chronology of steps leading to present knowledge about nuclear science is designed and presented to give teachers and students a better perspective of the whole subject of atomic energy. (EB)
