Science Unlimited: Teacher's Guide to the Intermediate Lessons.
Pennsylvania State Dept. of Education, Harrisburg. Div. of Arts and Sciences.
Science Unlimited (Pennsylvania Department of Education's elementary science effort) has developed a series of television programs for use in the primary and intermediate grades. These television programs form an integral part of science lessons which emphasize direct involvement of children with materials and ideas, provide for individual and group activities, are competency-based, use only easily available equipment and materials, and are keyed (via a curriculum matrix) to computer software and other resources. This guide contains the information necessary to teach lessons in which children in intermediate grades investigate: ice and water; chemistry; color; strips and liquids; geology; weather; sound; evaporation; floating things; simple machines; bouncing objects; electricity; energy; heat loss; and animals. This information includes (when applicable) lesson aims and competencies fostered, instructional strategies (including those related to use of the television programs), list of materials/equipment needed, background information, and resource materials for the teacher. General comments about the nature and use of Science Unlimited in teaching science and the instructional approaches used in the program are provided in an introduction. (JN)
