Starting Science Book 1: Introductory activities related to matter, plants and animals
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. The "Starting 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.

The activities in this book, Book One, revolve around the themes of:


Made and Natural
Alive and Not Alive
Pliable and Not Pliable
Solids and Liquids
Cause and Effect

Plants: Parts of a Plant
Plant Needs
