Issue Date: 7-Oct-2008
Abstract: In-Touch Science is a hands-on science program developed by the Cornell Cooperative Extension for children in grades 3-5 (aged 8-11). The program helps children -communicate what they are observing and learning -understand the science connection between two fields of study -recognize those science concepts in daily experience. In Touch-Science: Foods & Fabrics includes ten experiments that let children observe how similar science concepts relate to both foods and fabrics. The program emphasizes giving each child an opportunity to manipulate materials and equipment, test ideas, and explore what interests them in a relaxed learning environment.
