Science education is an
area of the school curriculum that is becoming increasingly important in
our society. For students to become well equipped to cope in a high
technology world they need a thorough grounding in science and
technology concepts from the beginning of their school careers.
Science" series is designed to introduce students to some of the
important skills associated with a hands on approach to the subject. In
completing this series of thematic investigations children are required
to utilize skills such as observing, classifying, recording, predicting,
sequencing, comparing and contrasting, identifying, and labelling.
To give background to
each activity page, sets of teachers’ notes have been provided so that
the page itself is able to become a supporting activity for the lesson,
rather than the lesson itself. However, while suggestions have been
made, teachers will quickly see how they can modify both teaching
outlines and activity pages to suit the needs of their class.
