Description

This book was created to assist students with their understanding of how science occurs in Florida. When teaching science or any subject it’s important to remember to begin with the concrete and then move to the abstract. I have found that it has helped my students when I begin by teaching science concepts in a concrete manner and expand from there. For example, when I taught about topographic maps, the students were much more successful in their learning when I started with local topographic maps that included the school and the surrounding area than with places that had mountains or the Grand Canyon. This book is to support concrete teaching as it involves and applies facts and descriptions about tangible objects and actions that can be found in Florida, ones that they have likely seen, or applies to them and their surroundings.
