Natural Systems: MINNEMAST Coordinated Mathematics - Science Series, Unit 29.
Bakke, Jeannette; And Others
This volume is the last 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 three 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 unit, three types of systems are examined. In the section on locomotion, the movement patterns of people, four-legged animals, fish, and birds are compared and contrasted. The functions of different parts of plants in carrying water is studied as an integrated system. The final section concerns the process of erosion, and examines factors related to this process. (SD)
