This book was published exclusively with the goal of preparing students to be future elementary school teachers. This four-color book is exactly the same as Wheeler and Wheeler's Modern Mathematics, Ninth Edition with the following additions: The preface was written directly with the goal of educating elementary school teachers, NCTM Standards are included in the book's end papers, and Reproductions of actual pages from four-color elementary school textbooks have been added.Guided by a team of reviewers and suggestions from more than 130 professors, the authors have produced an important revision. At the beginning of each section, goals and objectives have been replaced by statements from the NCTM Standards. Within each section the authors present the content, examples, problem sets, and laboratory exercises that fulfill the philosophy and the direction suggested by the Standards. In this edition, Ruric Wheeler is joined by his son, Ed, as co-author.An activities manual for prospective elementary school teachers has been completely rewritten by a team of authors with many years of experience teaching elementary and middle school students. In addition to a rich variety of activities it includes ''Talk to Teachers,'' a section that discusses the significance of each activity in the growth and preparation of the young student.

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? Selecting resources to teach elementary school science can be confusing and difficult, but few decisions have greater impact on the effectiveness of science teaching. Educators will find a wealth of information and expert guidance to meet this need in Resources for Teaching Elementary School Science. A completely revised edition of the best-selling resource guide Science for Children: Resources for Teachers, this new book is an annotated guide to hands-on, inquiry-centered curriculum materials and sources of help in teaching science from kindergarten through sixth grade. (Companion volumes for middle and high school are planned.) The guide annotates about 350 curriculum packages, describing the activities involved and what students learn. Each annotation lists recommended grade levels, accompanying materials and kits or suggested equipment, and ordering information. These 400 entries were reviewed by both educators and scientists to ensure that they are accurate and current and offer students the opportunity to: Ask questions and find their own answers. Experiment productively. Develop patience, persistence, and confidence in their own ability to solve real problems. The entries in the curriculum section are grouped by scientific area--Life Science, Earth Science, Physical Science, and Multidisciplinary and Applied Science--and by type--core materials, supplementary materials, and science activity books. Additionally, a section of references for teachers 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. Annotations highlight almost 300 facilities that make significant efforts to help teachers. Another section describes more than 100 organizations from which teachers can obtain more resources. And a section on publishers and suppliers give names and addresses of sources for materials. The guide will be invaluable to teachers, principals, administrators, teacher trainers, science curriculum specialists, and advocates of hands-on science teaching, and it will be of interest to parent-teacher organizations and parents.
