Presented is a teacher's guide to an elementary science unit designed for use with fourth grade, or higher, students in the Trust Territory of Micronesia. Although there is a degree of similarity to curriculum materials developed for the Science Curriculum Improvement Study, this Micronesian unit does not purport to be an adaption or edition of the SCIS materials. Designed to be taught in the vernacular language, this unit was prepared to be a companion unit to one concerning relative position and motion, with the two units involving the entire school year. The activities are designed for active student participation with the teacher acting as a guide. The unit involves the concepts of environment, environmental factor, range, and optimum range and the processes of observing, communicating, predicting, inferring, and recording. The guide contains information concerning objectives, teacher and student activities, rationale for the various activities, needed materials, teaching suggestions (provided on a day by day basis), and questions to be posed in class discussions.
