It consists of: (1) a rationale for an effective science program; (2) a list and description of four major goals of science; (3) a list and description of eight basic process skills (such as predicting and classifying) and five integrated processes (such as controlling variables and defining operationally); and (4) a 10-part curriculum outline. These parts provide performance objectives correlated with a concept, process skill(s), and suggested activities for each of the following major topic areas: scientific method; organization of life (differences between living and non-living things, the cell, unity of functions, and classification); protists; simple plants; plants; lower animals; human biology (body systems); reproduction; heredity and genetics; and ecology. A list of audiovisual suppliers and brief comments on evaluation techniques are also provided. (JN)
