Looking at Life. Teacher's Guide. Unit A2. ZIM-SCI, Zimbabwe Secondary School Science Project.
The Zimbabwe Secondary School Science Project (ZIM-SCI) developed student study guides, corresponding teaching guides, and science kits for a low-cost science course which could be taught during the first 2 years of secondary school without the aid of qualified teachers and conventional laboratories. This teaching guide, designed to be read in conjunction with the related student guide, includes instructional strategies, lists of required materials, laboratory procedures, and other information for activities and experiments which focus on the characteristics and classification of living things. The study of these differences is used to introduce students to the need for classification. Simple classification exercises based on observed characteristics and activities which examine larger animal groups are included. Other activities include measuring living things, examining normal and random distributions of characteristics, making a collecting net, seeing if plants move, and planting trees. Each section in this guide corresponds to a given section in the student study guide. (JN)
