Investigating Systems: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 15.
David, Edith, Ed.
This volume is the fifteenth in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by second-grade teachers, this unit guide provides a summary and overview of the unit, a list of materials needed, and descriptions of six 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. In this volume, six types of scientific systems are explored: (1) simple systems (rolling balls, magnets), (2) a color system, (3) seed dispersal systems, (4) chemical systems, (5) eating systems, and (6) a bulb-lighting system.
