This document was developed in response to the expressed need of physical science teachers for materials designed to facilitate and enhance the teaching of the 1999 North Carolina Standard Course of Study for Physical Science. The materials provide a guide to translating the goals and objectives of the Physical Science curriculum into good instructional design. A group of dedicated and talented Physical Science teachers led by Carolyn Elliott spent many hours developing these materials. The result is a resource that will facilitate the implementation of the North Carolina Science Curriculum. It includes the NC Standard Course of Study goals and objectives along with objective weights, a detailed content explanation, a list of helpful resources and a collection of some suggested activities. Also included is a collection of Inquiry Support Labs and Activities.
