Career Activities in Science: Grades 7-12.
Sleep, Gerald; And Others
The curriculum guide attempts to assemble select activities that represent skills related to careers in science. These learning activities are designed to give junior and senior high school students opportunities to explore concepts and processes in many science-related careers. The broad areas covered are biology, chemistry, physics, and earth science. Each area is divided into sub-topics with individual lessons that span junior and senior high school science activities. Biology includes ecology, genetics, microbiology, zoology, botany, and human biology. Chemistry examines both the structure and behavior of matter, chemical families, nuclear energy, organic chemistry, and measurement. Physics contains lessons in motion, energy, and mechanics. Lessons in earth science are concerned with earth, ancient earth history, atmosphere-weather, water and supply, determination of places and times, and astronomy. Each unit or sub-topic lists all possible careers relevant to that area, and each lesson is organized into grade level, activity, procedure, results, discussion of results, and, in some lessons, an application section. A bibliography concludes the guide. (JB)
