Provides nonscientists with information on what to teach in elementary science and strategies for how to teach it. The first eight chapters explore the theory and methodology of teaching science at the elementary school level. The remaining 14 chapters suggest content and related activities for specific topics--such as plants, heat, sound, machines, and the human body--and can be taught in any order. The new edition adds a chapter on the environment. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
