Science equipment and materials for elementary schools : suggestions for supervisors, administrators and teachers by Albert Piltz( Book )

5 editions published in 1961 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new emphasis on science in the elementary school has stimulated supervisors, administrators and many teachers to seek information on sources, selection, and use of appropriate materials and equipment in instruction. This bulletin is mainly to help the neophyte who is interested in the basics of elementary science teaching. The discussion is keyed particularly to the needs of the elementary school supervisor, principal, and others responsible for school policies regarding the procurement and use of science equipment. In planning a basic elementary science program the following concepts should be kept in mind--a continuum of science from kindergarten through high school is widely accepted as necessary in preparing young people to understand the impact of science and technology upon their lives, the elementary classroom needs to be equipped with all the up-to-date tools and devices which improve instruction, the "science corner" of earlier days is giving way to classroom facilities which make science an integral part of the elementary school program, science instruction can be greatly strengthened by the acquisition and utilization of adequate equipment and materials, effective use of equipment in science instruction can best be achieved when teachers and administrators understand its relation to the program objectives, since equipment is determined by the nature of the instructional program, criteria for planning the facilities may be derived by examining the characteristics of good science learning activities, the selection of material and equipment should never precede the science program. Building a program around equipment brings into serious question the soundness of teaching practice. The topic headings for general discussion included--(1) equipment, material, and facility requirements for a good science-learning activity, (2) selecting equipment and materials for a science program, (3) orienting teachers to the purpose and use of equipment and materials, (4) school policies regarding use of science equipment, and (5) budgetary and procurement practices
Science equipment and materials : science kits by Albert Piltz( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the elementary and secondary schools, there is a movement toward a sequential instructional program which would involve the offering of a laboratory science each year from kindergarten to high school graduation. In some schools teachers have turned to science kits as a partial solution to the problems presented by restricted space, inadequate facilities and equipment, short class periods, and heavy workloads. For some small schools, the science kit is the laboratory. The selection of kits presents special problems to teachers and school administrators who must judge their suitability for the school program. The purpose of this bulletin is to clarify issues concerning the instructional value of science kits and to suggest criteria for their classification and evaluation.
