Human Body (Physiology), K-6.
Bethlehem Area Schools, PA.
The physiology of the human body is one of eight subject areas covered in the K-6 Science Program of the Bethlehem Area School District. This manual is a teacher's guide to activities for each grade level. "Awareness of Senses" is treated in Kindergarten, "Body Growth and Development" in grade 1, "The Senses and Their Function" in grade 2, "The Ear" in grade 3, "Body Structure" in grade 4, "Body Systems" in grade 5, and "The Eye" in grade 6. It is intended that more emphasis be given to the human body in grades 1, 2, 4, and 5 (4 to 6 weeks) and less in grades K, 3, and 6 (2 to 4 weeks). The section for each grade first lists "understandings to be discovered" keyed to related activities. Each activity is introduced by a "leading question" followed by a list of materials and a description of an activity designed to answer the question. Many of the activities require students to manipulate materials, other suggest demonstrations, examination of models or charts on the use of reference materials. The sections for grades 3 and 4 also suggest assignments for homework or individual research. The activities are designed to give information and develop concepts (another unit used in each grade is designed to develop science processes). A flow chart is provided showing the overall plan of the Elementary Science Program, and an appendix contains tables of nutritional requirements, and a summary of digestion.
