The Solar System. Earth Science in Action. Teacher's Manual and Workbook.
Echaore, Susan D.
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 concepts about how the earth moves and its relationship to other planets and the sun. Six separate units include: (1) what is your space address; (2) the planet we live on; (3) our moon; (4) our sun; (5) our solar system; and (6) exploring our solar system. 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)
