Human Systems. Life Science in Action. Teacher's Manual and Workbook.
Echaore, Susan D.; Bartavian, John
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 life science. Seven separate units include: (1) you are alive; (2) moving parts; (3) staying alive; (4) the movers and removers; (5) systems that control your body; (6) creating life; and (7) taking care. 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)
