Energy. Physical Science in Action. Teacher's Manual and Workbook.
Sneider, Cary I.; Piccotto, Henri
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 physical science. Six separate units include: (1) what is energy; (2) burning fuels; (3) fuels from under the ground; (4) electricity; (5) solving energy problems; and (6) what can you do. 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)
