A variety of in-class assignments are included in this guide designed to accompany SPACES, a series of six, half-hour television programs designed to introduce students in the fourth through eighth grades to people and careers in science and technology. Targeted toward Black, Hispanic, Asian, and Native American minority children, the series demonstrates how science and technology are inextricably tied to everyday life. Each individual chapter corresponds to a program in the series: Space, the Body, Computers, Ecology, Energy, and Communications. Each chapter contains the program objectives, a program synopsis, pre- and post-viewing activities for students, subject background information for teachers, and a resource list of books and visual aids. Student viewing sheets, student activity sheets, and teacher directions for activities for each program are appended. (LMM)
