Earth Resources. Earth Science in Action. Teacher's Manual and Workbook.
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 fundamental concepts about natural resources. Six separate units include: (1) air; (2) water; (3) living off the land; (4) fossil fuels; (5) minerals; and (6) save your resources. 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)
