Resources for teaching elementary school science by Smithsonian Institution Staff( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 486 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"What activities might a teacher use to help children explore the life cycle of butterflies? What does a science teacher need to conduct a "leaf safari" for students? Where can children safely enjoy "hands-on" experience with life in an estuary? Educators will find a wealth of information and expert guidance in Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science. A completely revised edition of the best-selling resource guide, Science for Children: Resources for Teachers, this book is an annotated guide to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sources of help for teaching science from kindergarten through sixth grade. The guide annotates about 350 curriculum packages, describing the activities involved and what students learn. Each annotation also lists recommended grade levels, accompanying materials and kits or suggested equipment, and ordering information. The curriculum materials annotated in the guide were reviewed by both educators and scientists to ensure that they are accurate and current. They are grouped by scientific area - Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Multidisciplinary and Applied Science - and by type of materials - core, supplementary, and science activity books. Additionally, a section of references provides annotated listings of books about science and teaching, directories and guides to science trade books, and magazines that will help teachers enhance their students' science education. Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science also lists by region and state about 600 science centers, museums, and zoos where teachers can take students for interactive science experiences; highlights almost 300 facilities that make significant efforts to help teachers; describes more than 100 organizations from which teachers can obtain other resources and assistance; and provides names and addresses of publishers and suppliers of materials."--Jacket
