The purpose of this guide is to highlight some broad areas in which teachers and other adults have exceptional opportunities to encourage and enjoy teaching children science. Each area in the book provides some hands-on ideas for projects as well as an annotated list of readily available resources that might prove helpful on the topic at hand. The resources include numerous print materials and selected videos, tapes, kits, and models, as well as a listing of agencies, magazines, or other references where additional information may be secured. Activities described are in the following areas: physics; chemistry; biology; botany; ethology; geology; paleontology; astronomy; geography; cartography; marine biology; and exploring science through writing, art, one's senses, and in the library.
