ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--How do our bodies manage to heal wounds, build the stamina to run marathons, and give us the energy to stay alive and functioning? The new NSTA Press book Matter and Energy for Growth and Activity prompts high school students to explore questions like these while learning about physical and biological systems.
Matter and Energy provides 14 lessons that deepen students’ understanding of changes in plants and animals and the role of chemical reactions in the growth, repair, and activity of living organisms. The lessons unfold in two sections: (1) making sense of the matter changes involved in human growth and (2) making sense of the energy changes involved in human growth and activity.
The book comes in a Student Edition as well as a Teacher Edition, which shows sample student answers and explains the design rationale of each activity. Teachers also have access to online resources, including interactive media, videos, and handouts. The material in Matter and Energy builds on the middle school unit Toward High School Biology, also from NSTA Press.
Matter and Energy for Growth and Activity, Teacher Edition, has 420 pages. It’s priced at $44.95 and discount-priced for NSTA members at $35.96. (Stock # PB448XT; ISBN # 978-1-68140-685-5)
