Unit Mice and Men, First Trial Materials, Inspection Set, [Australian Science Education Project].
Australian Council for Educational Research, Hawthorn.
The Australian Science Education Project is producing a series of units designed for use in grades 7 - 10. This first trial edition contains a teachers guide, providing an overview of the unit and advice on mice management and classroom organization; booklets for students ("Mammals,""Investigations,""Care and Handling of Laboratory Animals,""Background Work," and "Check Your Answers"); 14 student worksheets; a student's guide to the unit; and a device for measuring mice tails. Morphological, physiological, and behavioral investigations are included as well as some exercises on classification. Student instruction varies from highly specific directions to suggestions of ideas that might be followed. The answer booklet emphasizes that students may not all get the same results in their experiments. The background work emphasizes the interrelationships of mice and men. (AL)
