(a.) SUGGESTIONS FOB A FIKST YEAR'S COXJRSE OF WORK
IN ELEMENTARY SCIENCE AND OBJECT LESSONS,



Purpose of The following syllabus is issued by the Commissioners as a guide to
Suggeik those teachers who have not yet had an opportunity of attending a
tioiiB.1 course of training in Elementary Science.

As it is desirable that an immediate start should be made in the teach-
ing of Elementary Science or Object Lessons, these suggestions are
issued to indicate the character of the teaching desirable, rather than
to limit or define the details of such teaching.

It is not intended that the whole of. the exercises given in these
suggestions should be accomplished, bui that whatever is attempted
should be thorough.

The end to be acliieved by instruction in Elementary Science and
Object Lessons has been previously sufficiently explained by the Com-
missioners in their notes and observations in Section V. of the New
Programme ; it is only necessary to repeat that the cultivation of
habits of accurate observation, and the illustration of the method of
scientific inquiry are of primary importance.

The experiments here suggested are intended to illustrate the subject
of the New Programme, — Elementary Experimental Science, which is
somewhat more fundamental in character, and capable of adequate
illustration with less expensive apparatus, than the alternative subjects
of the Programme.
Object Though a systematic and connected course of Elementary Science

LewoiML has many advantages over isolated Science or Object Lessons, yet
much valuable instruction may be given through the medium of Object
Lessons, until the teacher has received some training in Science and the
school is equipped with the necessary apparatus,
^teflof '^ *^® upper standards particularly, great value should be attached
Science or ^ *^® notes or reports made by the pupils upon the lessons in Elemen-
Object tary Science or Object Lessons they have received. These notes should
LoMona. represent the individual effort of each pupil, and as high a standard as
possible of handwriting, composition, neatness, and drawing should be
insisted upon.
Experi- In schools provided with apparatus where a systematic course of

mentB Elementary Science is being given, it is important that the pupils
K pS^k? should handle the apparatus and perform at least some of the experi-
^ ^* ments themselves ; the apparatus can be kept on a table in the class-
room throughout the day, and pupils may be sent in pairs to repeat
experiments at odd times during the day, at the discretion of the
teacher.

All results so obtained should be at once entered in a special class
note book, kept for this purpose, which should be shown to the Inspector
when he visits the school;
^dTof^th* The Commissioners grant equipment supplies in certain cases in
eupply o* accordance with conditions specified in the Circular, a copy of which ia
apparatus appended to these suggestions,

FIRST AND SECOND STANDARDS. Avp^

^ "" Object Lessons to Cultivate Powers op Observation; §?

The subjects for Object Lessons mentioned above are intended to
indicate the kind of subjects suitable, rather than to define precisely
what these shall be. In the lower standards a beginning should be
made with the simplest possible and most familiar subjects. At this
stage lessons from plant life are very much more satisfactory than
those from animal life. In the object lesson the handling of the object
by the scholars is of primary importance;

The scholars should notice the appearance, colour, and feel of the
following substances; Simple experiments should be made to de-
termine —

(i.) the action of water on those substances,
(ii.) the action of heat on them,
(iii.) whether they are easily powdered or malleable
(iv.) whether they are hard or soft, '

(v.) whether they are porous or not porous, and
' (vi.) whether they will float or sink in water. 1

1. Sugar,

2. Chalk.

3. Clay.
4; Sand.

5. Coal;

6. Flour;
\ 7. Starchi

8. Soap.
Recapitulation lessons should then be given, in which the properties
of these substances should be compared under the following heads : —
16. Solubility. 18. Porosity.

^ 17. Filtration, e.g., separa- 19. Melting.

tion of mixture of 20. Hardness and softness,
sand and sugar; 21. Flotation.

In addition to the above, simple experiments should be performed
to show the properties of —

22. Ice; 25. A lucifer match;

23; Waten 26. A candle.

24; Steam: 27. Burning oil;

In Older to further train their powers of observation the scholars
should learn all they can about the following forms and conditions of
plant life : —

28. An acorn; 32. The forms of leaves:

29; A bean. 33, Fruits (orange, apple, &c.)

30, The growth of seeds; 34. Roots (carrot, turnip, &c.)
- - 31; Simple flowers: 35. Grains of wheat, rice, &c.

^ THIRD STANDARD;

1: Object Lesson on the foot-rule. ^

TJfoie. ^Use for this purpose a rule divided along one edge in mches

and tenths of an inch and along the other in centimetres and milli-
metres.] . -, t ^-^ '

Appendix. 4^ Construct a knotted cord, six feet long, with knots at every six
SMfeionlL. inches. With this measure length and width of schoolroom, &c.

JL 5. Measure several parts of a line and also the whole line in inches and

tenths of an inch. Deduce rule for addition of decimals.

6. Measure the difference of two lines in inches and tenths of an inch.
Deduce rule for substraction of decimals.

7. Measure the three sides of a triangle and show that the sum of any
two sides is greater than the remaining side.

8. Construct from thick drawing paper a cubic centimetre and also
a cubic decimetre.

9. Fit up a " see-saw " balance and adjust by means of wire.

10. Balance equal weights in different positions on the " see-saw."
11; Balance the " see-saw " with unequal weights and deduce the law.



FGXJRTH STANDARD.

The work covered by previous standard and : —

1. Measure curved fines by " stepping " with pieces of thread.

2. Draw several squares, measure their diagonals, and find the relation
between length of side and length of diagonal.

3. Draw fines 1 inch, 2 inches, 3 inches, 4 inches, and 6 inches long,
and measure their lengths in centimetres. Hence find the number of
centimetres in an inch.

4. With a scale of 1 inch to a yard, draw lines representing 3 yards,
2*7 yards, a pole, a fathom, &c.

5. With a scale of 1 inch to 500 yards, draw lines representing 500
yards, 750 yards, 1,000 yards, a furlong, an English mile, an Irish mile,
&c.

6. Mark out on squared paper a rectangle 3 feet 6 inches by 2 feet
3 inches. Find its area by counting squares. Deduce rule for mul-
tiplication of decimals. Check this rule by drawing several other
rectangles and computing their areas in the same way.

7. Rule up one side of a sheet of paper into square inches and the
other side into square centimetres. Calculate the number of squaro
centimetres in a square inch.

8. Find volume in cubic inches and in cubic centimetres of a rec-
tangular block. Calculate number of cubic centimetres in a cubic inch,

Appendix, 6. Find areas of several paralelograms on equal bases and of equal
QtotiQn IL, heights, and compare with area of a rectangle of same base and height.
^ 7. Find areas of several triangles on equal bases and of equal heights,

and compare with area of a rectangle of same base and height.

8. Find areas of circles of 4, 5, and 6 centimetres radius respectively,
and compare with aiea of square on the radius in each case.

9. Find areas of several ellipses and compare with area of rectangle
contained by the semi-axes in each case.

10. Find area of several irregular figures.

[Nate. — In the above experiments the areas should be determined
by drawing the figures on the squared paper, and counting, in each
case, the number of whole-squares, and estimating the portions of
squares within the figure. The broken squares should be estimated
n tenths of a whole square]. x

11. Cut out a square decimetre of uniform cardboard, weigh this,
and calculate the weight of 1 square centimetre of the cardboard.

12. From the same cardboard cut out triangles, parallelograms,
and circles. Find weight of these, and knowing the weight of 1 square
centimetre of the cardboard calculate their areas. Compare with
results obtained by ordinary method of calculating areas.

13. Find the volume of several cylindrical objects in cubic centimetres
and in cubic inches. Deduce the number of cubic centimetres in one
cubic inch.

14. Find the volume of several objects by means of the inverted
bell- jar and burette.
