School Yard-Backyard Cycles of Science: A Guide to Science Concepts, Strategies and Hands-On Activities. Grades 3-9+.
This book focuses on the use of common, everyday materials, some of which can be obtained easily for use in hands-on-science activities. Major emphasis is placed on starter activities designed to prompt children to ask "why" or "what would happen if" type questions about science events. This guide aims to meet the need for actively involving problem solving in science with its contents and school/home format. Part one lists basic beliefs about youngsters and their learning, and describes the cycle of teaching. Part two provides 105 activities related to earth, space, and biological and physical science cycles. Part three presents some materials for special projects. Part four provides answers for the quizzes in part two. The last part lists a glossary of 197 key science cycle concepts. (YP)
