Inquiry Science is designed to engage children in investigation and discovery through hands on, student-centred activities. These easily resourced learning centre tasks provide opportunities for children to verbalise their observations and make inferences. In addition to a clear explanation of the activity, each lesson includes background information on the topic and suggestions to help children to focus on an experiment and to record and think about the discoveries.The science investigations in this book set the scene and prepare students for higher levels of achievement in science.
As students work towards this goal, they are encouraged to perform simple investigations (for example, measuring plant growth), involving observation and measurement and basic procedures including collecting and recording data.
