The Space Amateur Radio Experiment (SAREX) is designed to facilitate

communication between astronauts in orbit with students on the ground.

Through SAREX, astronauts make scheduled and unscheduled amateur

radio contacts from the Shuttle Orbiter with schools selected through a

proposal process from around the world. These contacts energize the

participating students and families about science, technology, and learning.

Bats Incredible uses the bat as the focus for an exploration of the concepts

of adaptation, interaction, and diversity. This conceptual unit provides a

natural integration of life (bats), earth (caves), and physical (aerodynamics

and sound) science. Students experience the aero dynamics of flight, investigate

the feeding adaptations of bats, investigate echolocation and explore bat habitats.

Assessment strategies, curricular correlations and home links are integrated

through this book.

Particular attention is given to (1) seeds: their structure, how they grow,

their properties, and how they are dispersed; (2) plants: their structure,

how plant parts work, photosynthesis, and development of seeds and fruit.

The last section is a short look at the structure of plant cells.

builds the concept of density as the ratio of mass to volume. Through a carefully planned

series of experiences, student抯 measure volume, explore the idea of space between particles

whether seen or not, discover the relationship between surface area and cargo capacity

of boats, and explore the densities and volumes of different types of spherical objects and

irregular shaped objects.

Machine Shop allows students to join the characters "Fantastic Force" and

"Mucky Mass" in their adventures as they discover the utility of simple machines.

Hands-on activities help students develop an understanding of the physics involved.

Students are challenged to apply their understanding to weigh each other using a

seesaw, to have tug-of-wars with pulleys, to determine how bicycle gears work,

and to construct catapults and racing machines. The pervasive concepts of

conservation of energy, forces, and power are developed through each of these

intriguing activities.

Our Wonderful World is an environmental studies book which explores how we relate to our

surroundings. Most of the activities are appropriately implemented out-of-doors and include

these topic areas: air, water, transpiration, soil, plants, animals, and insects. Students build

a water still to extract water from the air through condensation in one activity and study the

reaction of insects to temperature changes in another.

building a simple hygrometer, air pressure by building a barometer, and

wind speed and direction by building an anemometer and a wind vane.

Students will also examine soil composition, pollution, insect travel, and

peanut butter and jelly geology.

Popping with Power contains activities that deal with energy sources and conservation.

Students become machinists, engineers, and electricians as they investigate questions

such as: How do machines make life easier? How long can you keep an ice cube from

melting? How can you throw a very heavy ball over a tall wall? Student抯 natural curiosity

and enthusiasm about energy encourages them to get involved in these problem solving

math/science activities.

grow in soil; all plants need water, effects of temperature; green plants need light;

flowers produce seeds that grow into new plants; ferns and mosses are simple green plants;

and many kinds of plants have roots, stems, leaves, and flowers. The book also has four

science information sections: Plant Growth; Seeds, Spores, and More; Plants Needs; and Plant Parts.
