Cincinnati Public Schools, OH. Dept. of Instruction.
This publication is designed as a guide for the instructional program in science. The first part contains performance goals and conceptual schemes. Emphasis is placed on the teaching of science as content and as process. The processes outlined are: observing, classifying, measuring, inferring, predicting, and identifying variables. Experimental work is stressed where the classroom and the community as a whole serve as a laboratory for the children. The interrelation of science with other areas of the curriculum is encouraged, especially those learning activities which are appropriate for career motivation. The units in the guide are not grade-placed but represent a four-year span, K-3. They include the three major strands of science: Physical, Earth, and Life Science. For each strand, the concepts, performance objectives, materials, and learning activities are stated in detail. Evaluation is to be a continuous but informal activity on the part of the teacher. (GA)
