Summary

This pilot study was concerned with developing instructional materials for a single conceptual scheme that pervades all of science -- the principle of energy conservation. Some of the objectives of the project were to (1) determine whether a sequence of learning activities could be developed which would enable elementary school children to obtain an understanding of the conceptual scheme (2) to determine whether these activities would produce a progressively sophisticated understanding of the subordinate concepts considered to be components of that scheme (3) to identify the kinds of resources needed to develop a conceptually oriented elementary science program (4) to evaluate the efficacy of procedures used in the various steps of the program and (5) to identify problems that are encountered by elementary school teachers who attempt to use such a conceptually oriented program in science, particularly as these problems have implications for teacher training programs. Each of these objectives and the steps taken to achieve them are discussed in detail in the report. The last two sections discuss the findings of the study, with recommendations for further use of the materials and for further curriculum development along these lines. (BC)
