Changing Earth. Earth Science in Action. Teacher's Manual and Workbook.
Jagoda, Susan Kaschner; Friedland, Mary
The Science in Action series is designed to teach practical science concepts to special-needs students. It is intended to develop students' problem-solving skills by teaching them to observe, record, analyze, conclude, and predict. This document contains a student workbook which deals with basic principles of earth science. Seven separate units include: (1) the land around you; (2) the movement of rocks inside the earth; (3) mountains; (4) wearing down mountains; (5) climate; (6) how people change the earth; and (7) the land you live on. The units consist of basic introductory information and questions, worksheets, a self-checking quiz, and instructions for experiments. A cumulative test is provided at the end of the workbook, along with a glossary. The teachers guide (which is included) explains how to use the workbook, together with teaching suggestions and enrichment activities for each unit. (TW)
