Nuffield Combined Science, Teachers' Guide I and Pack I Activities.
Nuffield Foundation, London (England).
Nuffield Combined Science is a set of tested instructional materials prepared in an "attempt to recapture the unity of outlook and consistency of method which belong to the whole of science and which enable us to make reasoned statements about the world we live in." The student-centered activity-based materials integrate the traditional divisions of science. The materials were prepared for students in grades seven and eight of British secondary schools. However, the material is not unique to a British environment. Teachers' Guide I contains outlines of experiments, philosophy, and comments on the first five of ten sections: The World Around Us; Looking for Patterns; How Living Things Begin; Air; and Electricity. The associated Activities Pack includes a booklet for each section, listing instructions for some of the suggested student investigations, background reading, and a series of questions to guide classroom discussion or prompt individual out-of-school activities. Reference sheets guide students in basic manipulative techniques--hand lenses, heating, and using measuring instruments. See also SE 015 450 and SE 015 451. (AL)
