Turning Kids On to Science in the Home: Our Environment. Book 1.
Liem, Tik L.
This is the first book in a sequence of four volumes written and designed for parents of students of science, particularly for those at the lower and upper elementary and junior high or intermediate level, senior high students, college students preparing to teach science, and all those individuals who are interested in science and the application of science in daily life. This volume consists of five chapters that contain 129 discrepant events (occurrences or happenings which go against what we usually think likely) dealing with the properties of matter in the immediate environment. Each of the chapters contains demonstrations that can be used to build lessons dealing with air, flowing air, weather, characteristics of matter, and chemicals. Instructions for each event include materials, procedure, questions, and an explanation. Emphasis is placed on the use of simple materials. An appendix contains data tables required by the events. A list of available science educational materials from Science Inquiry Enterprises is included and an index is provided. (LZ)
