Edgar, Irvin T.
This article, which provides answers to commonly asked questions about teaching science in the primary grades, is part of a series included in the Primary Packet of Materials compiled by the Division of Early Childhood Education of the Pennsylvania Department of Public Instruction. Questions considered are: What is science? What should students be taught in science? Which textbook is best, or is a multi-text approach best? How does one find time to teach science? How are student differences provided for? Are there national programs for science as there are for mathematics? The article also includes a list of desirable characteristics for a school science program and a 2-page bibliography. (JF)
