Science on a Shoestring. Second Edition.
Strongin, Herb; And Others
Often elementary and junior high teachers search for effective, inexpensive, and easy-to-understand science activities. This document was designed with those teachers and their students in mind. It provides hands-on science activities that focus around three components: (1) themes--broad, unifying ideas that pervade science, math and technology; (2) processes--the techniques used to develop and test scientific concepts; and (3) concepts--including the vocabulary and the key information children need to develop and communicate scientific ideas. Over 45 activities related to matter, change and energy are presented. (ZWH)
