BSCS Science Tracks: Connecting Science And Literacy: Solving Air Pollution Problems Teacher Edition
Author(s): Biological Sciences Curriculum Studies-10789
SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY-Students investigate two types of pollution problems, one personal and one environmental. First, students investigate the effects on the respiratory system of cigarette smoking. They explore the respiratory system and determine how it helps us meet our needs for air. Then, they determine that smoking interferes with the functioning of the respiratory system and reduces its ability to function. Second, students investigate some causes of air pollution in the environment, explore the harmful effects of air pollution on the respiratory system, and propose ways that our society might reduce air pollution, improve air quality, and thereby promote a healthy environment.
BSCS Science TRACKS includes a Teacher's Edition, complete with facsimile pages of the student guide, placed exactly where you need them with the Teaching Strategies. In addition, the Teacher's Edition incorporates the following features, designed to help you organize and manage an activity-based science program within your busy teaching day. The Program Overview explains:
