Comparing Changes: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 19.
Vogt, Elaine E., Ed.
This volume is the nineteenth 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 five groups of activities. 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. The focus of this unit is on experimental activities related to the prediction and observation of change. One section is related to the growth of plants, a second to duration of time and clock reading, and a third to other functional relationships. The construction of graphs by plotting ordered pairs is introduced. The final section of the unit concerns the measurement of volume and weight. Also included is a bibliography listing related books and films. (SD)
