Science Day Guide.
Mann, Joanne Zinser
This guide: (1) discusses why science is basic and considers its relationship to the development of reading and writing skills and the development of language and formal thought; (2) provides a rationale for the educational value of science research projects; (3) presents information to assist teachers in the logical sequencing of students through science projects; (4) provides planning and management guidelines for a successful science day; (5) outlines science day standards for students, judges, teachers, parents, and others planning to conduct science days; (6) reinforces the objectives of the Ohio Academy of Science; and (7) provides (in appendices) 23 outlines, checklists, forms, and sample materials used in developing science projects and science days. The guide is not intended to be read cover to cover at one time. Rather, it is written to be referred to when specific questions come up that need to be answered. (JN)
