Dyrud, Grace H.; And Others
This volume is the eighth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by first-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of four groups of lessons. The purposes and procedures for each activity are discussed. Examples of questions and discussion topics are given, and in several cases ditto masters, stories for reading aloud, and other instructional materials are included in the book. This unit, concerned with the observation of properties of objects, and the use of these observations in classification and description, includes sections titled: (1) observing and describing properties, (2) sorting sets by properties, (3) testing for properties, and (4) changing and unchanging properties.
