Living Things in Field and Classroom: A MINNEMAST Handbook for Teachers of Early Elementary Grades.
Subarsky, Zachariah; And Others
This handbook for teachers of the primary grades suggests a variety of means by which children can be provided with experiences related to science and mathematics. Chapters are devoted to the classroom garden, the classroom zoo, the classroom museum, objects children bring to school, and field trips. Each chapter describes preparations to be made and suggests procedures to be used throughout the school year. The various plants, animals, or objects which might be included are described, and their care is discussed. Field trip discussions suggest places to visit (e.g., a tree, a barn, the school yard), and questions that might be asked at each location. A bibliography related to the topics discussed is provided. The first part of the bibliography presents an annotated list of materials for the teacher; the second part provides lists of children's books. Although this handbook was prepared for use by teachers using the MINNEMAST materials, it can be used independently of the other materials. (SD)
