Unified by the theme "our community", this unit, part of nine basic instructional units for intermediate level, reflects the observations of Mexican Americans, Puerto Ricans, and Cubans in various regions of the United States. Comprised of Kits 1-4, the unit extends the following basic and interpreted science processes: observing, communicating, classifying, using numbers, measuring, inferring, predicting, identifying variables, describing relationships between variables, constructing a table of data, collecting and processing data, analyzing investigation, formulating hypotheses, experimenting and interpreting data. Each kit directs specific attention to a spiraling question: Who is the individual? What are the individual's alternatives? How can the individual initiate change? What happens as a result of change? Kit 1 covers the four basic food groups, the characteristics of living things, the metric system, the development of histograms, and the identification of some food nutrients. Kit 2 deals with the properties of air, air molecules at different temperatures, the skin as a sense organ, and skin care. Kit 3 presents the concepts dealing with air humidity and its condensation and evaporation, weather conditions and forecasting, and water pollution and its effect on the environment. Kit 4 deals with various elements of sound awareness and the parts and functions of the ear. (NQ)
