A classic resource for teachers is now back in an updated edition! Using an inductive and experimental approach, Animal Coloration aims to increase students' awareness of the ways wild organisms are adapted to their environments. Even though the activities suggest a specific teaching procedure, each activity is also intended to be an investigation by the students and an opportunity for them to make and test hypotheses based on their observations. Through these activities, students will begin to appreciate how scientfic knowledge and understanding were attained. Each of the activities provides an opportunity to incorporate US National Science Education Content Standards, including science and inquiry, life science, and history and nature of science. Also new to this revision is a table summarizing each activity with learning outcomes and relevant content standards. Originally published in 1966 by the Regents of the Univesity of California, Animal Coloration is the result of over five years of field-testing and experimentation by the Elementary School Science Project at UC Berkeley. This book was difficult to find for far too long, so NSTA Press is especially proud to bring the book to a new generation of teachers and to update the work for its long-time admirers.Activities on the Evolution of Concealment Robert Cyril Stebbins, D.
