Entry Numbers

Curriculum materials are arranged alphabetically by title in each category (Core Materials, Supplementary Materials, and Science Activity Books) in chapters 1 through 4 of this guide. In addition, each annotation has a two-part entry number. For each entry number, the chapter number is given before the period; the number after the period locates the entry within that chapter.

For example, the first entry number in chapter 1 is 1.1; the second entry in chapter 2 is 2.2, and so on.

The entry numbers within each curriculum chapter run consecutively through Core Materials, Supplementary Materials, and Science Activity Books.

Order of Bibliographic Information

Following is the arrangement of the facts of publication in the annotations in this section:

  • Title of publication.

4.3 Interaction and Systems. SCIS 3. Herbert D. Thier and Robert C. Knott. Hudson, N.H.: Delta Education, 1992.

Grade: 2 Interaction and Systems is a comprehensive, half-year program of physical science and earth science during which students investigate evidence of interaction in a variety of systems. For example, in physical science they investigate batteries interacting with bulbs, and magnets interacting with paper clips and other metallic objects. The systems concept is applied to the earth sciences as students observe and describe the interaction between land and water. Students gain practical experience with the mathematical concepts of ratio and proportion as they experiment with gear and pulley systems. They interpret dissolving, color change, precipitation, and evaporation as evidence of interaction. Through activities with static electricity, magnets, and compasses they investigate interactions between objects that are not in contact. Throughout this unit, students have the opportunity to observe and col-
