Developing a Repertoire of Activities for Teaching Physical Science.
Cain, Peggy W.
This activity manual is divided into 15 units which focus on: the nature of science; metric measurements; properties of matter; energy; atomic structure; chemical reactions; acids, bases, and salts; temperature and heat; readioactivity; mechanics; wave motion, sound, and light; static charges and current electricity magnetism and electromagnetism; electronics; and space science. Each unit contains an objective, instructional strategies (which provide background information for concepts fostered), activities, and applications and implementation (in which past, present, and future experiences of students are related to the concepts demonstrated in the activities). Activities may include demonstrations, individual and guided experiences, and laboratory experiences. Each of them explains a concept by the use of visual, tactile, auditory, and kinesthetic teaching/learning styles. Brief comments on safety and the objectives and content for a general physical science course are included. (JN)
