Hands-On Science in the Elementary School. Fastback 376.
LeBuffe, James R.
Hands-on science is not a new idea. It has been implemented successfully in many schools. But it is far from being universally used in American elementary schools. Several problems must be overcome in order to implement a successful hands-on science program. This booklet contains guidelines to eliminate some of the difficulties involved in implementing hands-on programs. The chapters are: (1) "Why Hands-On Science?"; (2) "Planning the Hands-On Science Program"; (3) "Selecting Hands-On Science Units"; (4) "Creating a Refurbishment System"; (5) "Supporting the Hands-On Program"; (6) "Assessing Hands-On Programs"; (7) Hands-On Science Partnerships"; (8) "Three Sample Hands-On Units"; and (9) "Sources for Hands-On Science."
