Thinking Connections: Concept Maps for Life Science. Book B.
The concept maps contained in this book (for grades 7-12) span 35 topics in life science. Topics were chosen using the National Science Education Standards as a guide. The practice exercise in concept mapping is included to give students an idea of what the tasks ahead will be in content rich maps. Two levels of concept maps are included for each topic so that teachers can easily differentiate their assignments. The structure, features, and notations of concept maps are fully explained. Map topics relate to cell biology, plant biology, animal biology, and human biology. (Author/DDR)
