This handbook provides the elementary school teacher with specific suggestions regarding use of materials and organization of effective learning experiences in science at this level. The book contains three sections: An introduction emphasizes both science knowledge and process while the other two sections deal with subject matter topics for grades 3 and 4. Suggestions for evaluation follow each science topic. A bibliography of both children's books and professional books for science teaching in the elementary school is provided. An extensive film list is also developed. Topics developed in grade 3 include electricity, the earth and the sun, needs of plants and animals, sound, weather, friction, gravity, motion, and rocks. Topics developed in grade 4 include using a compass, the moon, plants, sound, weather, moving things, and water. (BC)
