Magnets and Electricity. Seychelles Integrated Science [Teacher and Pupil Booklets]. Unit 8.
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 P8 SIS unit focuses on: (1) elementary concepts in magnetic theory and the role magnets and magnetism play in students' everyday lives; (2) basic concepts of electricity; (3) students' ability to follow simple circuit diagrams and to connect circuits involving bulbs, batteries, switches, resistors, ammeters, and volt meters; and (4) how electricity and magnetism are relevant to everyday life in Seychelles. 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)
