The Whole Cosmos. Catalog of Science Activities.
Abruscato, Joe; Hassard, Jack
Based on the notion that science begins and ends with the natural curiosity that young people have about themselves and the world, this book provides teachers and parents with many options for science exploration. Concepts are developed through science activities, creative arts activities, puzzles and games, and short biographies of individuals who have had an impact on science. This information is organized into four major sections. Part I, The Life Sciences, provides ideas and activities ranging from the microscopic world to human anatomy and ecological factors. Part II, The Earth Sciences, includes lessons on rocks and minerals, aquatic ecosystems, hydrology, and the weather. Part III, The Physical Sciences, consists of experiments and information about molecules, energy, magnetism, electricity, and gravity. Part IV, The Aerospace Sciences, presents activities dealing with flight and astronomy. A final section of the book explores science fiction, ESP, and provides gamebords and reproducible illustrations to be used in some of the games and activities. (TW)
