K-6 Science Curriculum Guide. Bulletin 1613.
Louisiana State Dept. of Education, Baton Rouge. Div. of Academic Programs.
This curriculum guide, developed to establish statewide curriculum standards for the Louisiana Competency-based Education Program, encompasses those standards that must be included in the elementary school (kindergarten to grade 6) science program. It consists of: (1) a rationale for an effective elementary school science program; (2) a list and description of four major goals of science; (3) a list and description of eight basic and five integrated process skills; and (4) a list of skills and curriculum outline for grades K-3 and another list of skills and curriculum outline for grades 4-6. The lists of skills and curriculum outlines are organized according to three broad disciplines: life science (senses, living/nonliving matter, plants, animals, and the human body); earth science (soil, weather, the solar system, and the earth); and physical science (change-space relations, light, sound, air, matter, heat, magnetism, electricity, and simple machines). Included for the topics within the curriculum outline are performance objectives correlated with a concept, process skill(s), and suggested activities. The outline for graphing and measuring skills for grades K-3 and 4-6 is included in appendices. Also included are brief comments on evaluation techniques. (JN)
