Conserving Our Health. Seychelles Integrated Science. [Teacher and Pupil Booklets]. Unit 12.
Brophy, M.; Fryars, M.
Seychelles Integrated Science (SIS), a 3-year laboratory-based science program for students (ages 11-15) in upper primary grades 7, 8, and 9, was developed from an extensive evaluation and modification of previous P7-P9 materials. This P9 SIS unit deals with conserving health, focusing on such body processes as breathing, digestion, excretion, circulation, and nervous coordination. Other areas examined include the importance of diet and exercise, damage done to the body by smoking, and the effects of alcohol on the body. In addition, the fact that people may have different interpretations of the same observation is explored. Provided for the unit is a student workbook and a set of teaching notes. The teaching notes include the general aims of the unit, and a lesson plan for each topic area. Each lesson plan includes a suggested time frame, a list of objectives, a list of equipment needed, and a suggested lesson format. This format includes suggestions for introducing the lesson, instructional strategies (emphasizing procedures for student activities), and evaluation methods. The student workbook includes procedures for completing the unit activities and a list of new words keyed to page numbers in the workbook. (JN)
