Science: Grade 7. Interim Guide.
Manitoba Dept. of Education and Training, Winnipeg.
This guide is one of a set of 10 science guides, each covering a separate grade in Manitoba, together covering kindergarten through grade 9. The guides have been designed to provide a framework for building scientific concepts and developing the learning of process skills. They replace an earlier set of guides dated 1979. Each guide is essentially the same through the first 16 pages, after which the core units vary appropriately for each academic level. Three themes and units within those themes which are carried through the K-4 program include: (1) environmental interdependency and interaction-- microbes and ecosystems (grade 7); (2) matter and energy--light /physical properties/physical changes or matter (grade 7); and (3) earth, time and space--rocks, minerals and soils/the observable universe (grade 7). Appendices include: (1) K-9 program overview; (2) science processes development: K-9; (3) science processes development: problem solving, K-9; (4) objectives and concepts for STS interactions; (5) K-9 STS content; (6) uses of computers in science; (7) safety in science; (8) women in science; (9) science fairs; (10) basic equipment lists for grades 5-9; (11) directions for using the microscope; and (12) a copy of the response questionnaire for the K-9 program of studies.
