Nelson, Bonnie E.
Activities in the life and physical sciences are provided (in separate sections) for preschool and elementary school students. Life science activities include those related to plants, soil, habitats, fossils, animals, life cycles, food chains, nutrition, and other biologically-oriented topics. Physical science activities include those related to matter (solids, liquids, gases) and energy (motion, sound, light, heat, electricity, magnetism). Objective(s), materials needed, instructional strategies, and a section with additional information for teachers are provided for each activity. Various aspects of teaching science to young children are discussed in an introductory section. A final section includes: (1) activities focusing on the nature of experiments; (2) measuring activities; (3) lists of books and science suppliers; and (4) a materials packet containing sheets to reproduce for selected activities.
