Integrating Science with Technical and Vocational Areas.
Snyder, Larry; Shreckengast, Craig
This guide presents learning activities and lesson plans that integrate science with technical and vocational areas. Activities and plans are organized under broad headings such as Environmental Science and Acid Rain Research; Criminal Justice, Chemistry, and Narcotics; Children's Education and Services; Cosmetology; and Health Professions. Students are able to explore the collection and testing of rainwater, use narcotic testing modalities, develop a science activity appropriate for elementary-aged children, investigate the general characteristics of their own hair, and test several brands of antacid tablets for their ability to neutralize excess stomach acid. All activities include procedures, materials lists, graph grids, and data sheets. (DDR)
