A Development and Practical Evaluation of the Teaching MaterialsAiming at Enhancing Students' Scientific Thinking Ability : With Special Reference to the Interconnection BetweenWeather Observation Results and Weather Information
This study intends to develop and evaluate the teaching materials for the earth science education aiming at enhancing students' scientific thinking ability. The materials are designed for students to perform activities considering the interconnection between weather observation results and weather information. The activities include the experiments by using two simulation models which are contrived by students themselves. The result showed that the teaching materials now developed produced positive effects on enhancing students' scientific thinking ability.
