Vogt, Elaine E., Ed.
This volume is the twenty-third in a series of 29 coordinated MINNEMAST units in mathematics and science for kindergarten and the primary grades. Intended for use by third-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. The preparatory lessons in this volume revolve around a field trip designed to introduce students to the importance of moisture, temperature, and light for living things. Each of these conditions is explored further in a subsequent set of lessons. After a review of the material learned, the final set of lessons concern seasonal changes. (SD)
