Page 110 - ... Society, and which the Society should use its influence to diffuse : 1. Instruction in Natural Science should commence in the lowest grades of the primary schools, and should continue throughout the curriculum. 2. In the lower grades the instruction should be chiefly by means of object-lessons ; and the aim should be to awaken and guide the curiosity of the child in regard to natural phenomena, rather than to present systematized bodies of fact and doctrine. 3.
