Unit Plants, First Trial Materials, Inspection Set.
Australian Science Education Project, Toorak, Victoria.
The Australian Science Education Project is producing materials designed for use in grades 7-10 of Australian schools. This is the first trial version of a unit introducing the study of plants. The section to be completed by all pupils, contained in the first of the student workbooks, emphasizes observation of specimens on school grounds and on excursions, introducing the student to plant diversity and the idea of adaptation. There are also some exercises on germination and growth. Guidance given students is reduced in the second booklet, which contains ideas for 12 optional student investigations. A test booklet, and answer and worksheets, are provided. The teacher's guide contains an overview of the unit; its affective, psychomotor, and cognitive objectives; and methods of integrating this unit with others in the series. Detailed lists of material and references necessary or useful for each of the exercises accompany suggestions for organizing classroom and field activities. (AL)
