In the 20 experiments new ideas are explored in a fun style. The experiments are easy to conduct but have greater scientific depth than heretofore.
The children are introduced to such interesting topics as geysers, static electricity, lightning, liquids, solids, magnets etc. They are also shown how to construct bird feeders and plant trees.
There is a quiz at the end of the book which acts as an assessment tool for teachers.
This Science Quest series complements the Geography Quest series and the History Quest series to provide a comprehensive programme of S.E.S.E. activities for children.
The series reflects the changes in content, structure and teaching approaches contained in the science component of the S.E.S.E. Primary School Curriculum.
It introduces children to basic scientific concepts, using experiments that are easy and safe to carry out in a classroom setting. The experiments are pitched at a level appropriate to each class. All experiments have been tried and tested in classrooms by experienced teachers.
Each chapter contains Helpful Hints for teachers to pre-empt any difficulties that may arise. The setting the scene section of each chapter outlines the objectives to be addressed in each chapter.
