Make science accessible, relatable and absolutely irresistible with this Scientific Experiments series. Each book draws students into science learning and builds their skills and enthusiasm through thought-provoking worksheets and experiments across the broad spectrum of science disciplines.
Explaining Scientific Experiments – Book 1 & 2 (Ages: 10-13)
The two Explaining Scientific Experiments books open up many tantalising opportunities for experimentation at the primary school level with step-by-step worksheets designed to light the spark of scientific curiosity in your classroom. From a teacher’s perspective, both books have the added attraction of taking much of the time and trouble out of facilitating learning: every experiment is accompanied by teacher notes that offer a deeper understanding of the concepts behind it, along with handy troubleshooting tips and answers to tricky questions that students love to ask.
Designing Scientific Experiments – Book 1 (Ages: 12-15)
The core aim of Designing Scientific Experiments is to lay the foundations for productive and inspiring experimental work by budding scientists in junior secondary school. It recognises that many students need to be explicitly taught about the scientific method so that they can design and conduct effective and meaningful experiments. Its activities and differentiated worksheets build students’ confidence and abilities, while the stimulating selection of experimental ideas and templates spur them on to devise and run experiments of their own in the classroom.
Analysing Scientific Experiments – Book 1 (Ages: 12-15)
Students will find their logical next steps in Analysing Scientific Experiments, from which they can experience the satisfaction of getting real meaning from experimental results. Through these activities, they will develop the range of analytical and statistical skills they need to interpret their results and use their understanding of scientific principles to reach sound conclusions. After completing simple scaffolding activities to practise various statistical and analytical techniques in isolation, students gain many opportunities to apply those techniques to both results supplied in the resource and results they gain from their own experiments.
