For easy use, all materials are organized into the five units of study listed below with their sections. Each unit offers a variety of lessons designed to provide interaction between students and their world in a way that encourages scientific reasoning.
More than 450 illustration and 100 tables supplement instruction, add interest, and heighten the learning process.
Also included is a handy appendix in reproducible form that contains valuable tables, lists, information on safety, chemical procurement and preparation, and more. And as a special help, each lesson provides complete answer keys and enough detailed explanations to ensure success for even the inexperienced science teacher.
You'll find Hands-On Chemistry Activities can be used to supplement any chemistry textbook or as a stand-alone chemistry program in itself. However you use it, these activities will help you inject new vitality into your curriculum!
