Life Cycle. K-6 Science Curriculum.
Blueford, J. R.; And Others
Life Cycle is one of the units of a K-6 unified science curriculum program. The unit consists of four organizing sub-themes: (1) past life (focusing on dinosaurs and fossil formation, types, and importance); (2) animal life (examining groups of invertebrates and vertebrates, cells, reproduction, and classification systems); (3) plant life (investigating plant characteristics, values, growth patterns, and the process of photosynthesis); and (4) human biology (with activities on the senses, body systems, and disease). Each sub-theme contains an introductory statement, student activities for lower primary grades (K-3) and upper primary grades (4-6), and a teacher's copy for each student worksheet. Student worksheets are ready for duplicating. (ML)
