|Subject:||Re-broadcast of the "Elementary Science Kits"
Cable Television Programs for LSD Science Units
"4c: Plant Growth and Development" and
"5c: Investigating Weather Systems"
The *"Elementary Science Kits"* television programs produced last year featuring Dr. R. Timothy Smith -- LSD's Elementary Science Teacher Specialist -- will be presented again on Cable Channel 21 in anticipation of the start of our third-quarter science units. The programs may be of interest both to families and to school staff, especially those who may be new to teaching fourth- or fifth-grade science this year. At present, two programs have been produced: one for science unit "4c: Plant Growth and Development" (runs just over 100 minutes) and one for science unit "5c: Investigating Weather Systems" (runs just over 45 minutes).
The programs will be broadcast over the next three weeks as a rerun series cablecast according to the following schedule (start times are close approximates):
