The Chemicals of the Earth. Study Guide. Unit F2. ZIM-SCI, Zimbabwe Secondary School Science Project. Year 2.
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 ZIM-SCI study guide presents activities and experiments for a three-part unit in which students investigate: (1) the chemical compounds found in the earth's crust and atmosphere; (2) the characteristics of metals and non-metals; and (3) the extraction of iron from red iron oxide and the purification of copper. Information to help students understand the scientific principles behind the activities and experiments is provided. (JN)
