Brophy, M.; Fryars, M.
Seychelles Integrated Science (SIS), a 3-year laboratory-based science program for students (ages 11-15) in upper primary grades 7, 8, and 9, was developed from an extensive evaluation and modification of previous P7-P9 materials. This P7 SIS unit focuses on: (1) the structure of the two main soil types in Seychelles; (2) the role of roots in plant growth; (3) the concept of the cellular nature of living things; (4) benefits of having earthworms in soil; (5) separating soil samples; and (6) the behavior of snails and the damage to agricultural crops caused by these animals. Provided for the unit is a student workbook and a set of teaching notes. The teaching notes include the general aims of the unit and a lesson plan for each topic area. Each lesson plan includes a suggested time frame, a list of objectives, a list of equipment needed, and a suggested lesson format. This format includes suggestions for introducing the lesson, instructional strategies (emphasizing procedures for student activities), and evaluation methods. The student workbook includes procedures for completing the unit activities and a list of new words keyed to page numbers in the workbook. (JN)
