Life: A Question of Survival.
Schlitt, Dorothy M.; And Others
The purpose of this textbook is to provide junior high school students with the knowledge they will need to effect the changes that must be made for survival, to provide an environment that can sustain and flourish life, and understand and appreciate the aesthetic, social, and scientific implications of environmental problems. Organized around everyday problems, the problems of survival and the problems of science, the text is activity centered. Questions, problems, and investigations are oriented for the student to develop skills in identifying and solving problems rationally and systematically. Each of the seven units - (1) Organization for Survival, (2) Adaptation for Survival, (3) Food for Survival, (4) Utilizing Food, (5) Maintaining the Environment, (6) Responding to the Environment, and (7) Perpetuating the Species: Survival Through Time - is divided into three or four major ideas or topics, complete with subdividisions, investigations, and self-check questions. A summary, list of references for further reading, and set of self-test questions appear at the end of each chapter. Marginal notes throughout the book are a source of additional information and numerous photographs and diagrams enrich the written material. (BL)
