Science Activities for Middle School Students, a revision of George Lorbeer and Leslie Nelsonas classic Science Activities for Children, gives instructors practical, fun, hands-on learning activities to help teach children about science and problem-solving skills. Each activity follows the same step-by-step format: Problem, Procedure, Result, Supplemental Information, and Thought Questions. The activities are accompanied by simple illustrations that help clarify procedures and expected results. With a total of nearly 300 activities, future science teachers will find a wealth of ideas to help them become more effective in the classroom. Science Activities for Middle School Children contains more challenging, higher-level science activities, such as ones about the Greenhouse Effect, the Icehouse Effect, Ozone Depletion, and the Eutrophication of some of our fresh water supplies. The text is an excellent and comprehensive resource that future and practicing teachers of elementary science will want to keep at armas length for ready reference.The longer the pendulum, the greater the swing time.
