British Columbia Elementary Science Materials Based Units Program. Interim Edition, 1977.
Anderson, Len; And Others
This document, published by the Ministry of Education of British Columbia, represents an extensive modification of the 1969 permissive elementary science program, a materials-based program which necessitates the involvement of students in scientific activities and explorations. Science teaching involves the student in the processes of science. Throughout the program, from year one to year seven, the child engages in "hands-on" activities in the investigational climates of the classroom and community. For each unit a discription is given, followed by learning outcomes in terms of process emphasis and content. References for teacher and for pupil as well as equipment information are included. Within the program, a balance has been maintained between the biological and physical sciences. (Author/GA)
