This science curriculum guide for grades 7-9, developed by the Manitoba Department of Education, attempts to correlate information known about the intellectual and social development of young adolescents with the nature of science education. The curriculum provides opportunities for students to examine how humans grow and develop, how humans differ from and resemble each other, and how humans differ from and resemble other organisms. Another emphasis is placed upon environmental education, in which topics such as energy conversion, alternative energy sources, and the role of energy conservation are explored. Skills emphasized include the selection and ordering of data, the determination of the effect of variables, and how evidence is weighed. Core objectives are provided for each grade level, classified by subject area and identified as concept or process objectives or psychomotor skills. (Author/CS)
