Smith, Janice, Ed.
This manual was developed to help K-3 teachers incorporate science and science activities as an integral part of their curricula. It integrates hands-on science activities with other curricular areas, particularly the language arts. The activities include science background information, science process skills, classroom management suggestions, extensions of the original activity, and connections to other relevant areas. The activities in this manual are correlated to specific benchmarks in "Benchmarks for Science Literacy." Topics covered include: color and light, insulation, pressure, surface tension, water and changing its state, and making connections. A bibliography, list of resources for science teachers, and list of suppliers for materials recommended are also included. (JRH)
