This monography presents the concepts to be presented, the psychomotor skills through to pertain to all the concepts, the process skills required, and the values and attitudes hoped to be developed for a science curriculum, K through 8. A list of suggested field trips accompanies each syllabus. At the kindergarten through grade 6 levels, scientific concepts are presented concerning Animal and Plant Biology, Health and Nutrition, Earth and Space Science, Matter and Energy, as well as some general concepts of Measurements. A more detailed course outline is presented for levels seven and eight. In level seven, greater emphasis is placed on such concepts as Evolution, Genetics and Interdependency, in the biological sciences and Forms of Energy, and Simple Mechanics for the physical sciences. Attention is given to careers in science, great names in science and the measurement system in both levels seven and eight. The psychomotor skills, process skills and affective skills suggested are also directed toward both levels. Earth and Space science, including Oceanography, is developed as level eight. (EB)
