Primary Science is a great new addition to our education category for KS1 & KS2 Science (5-11 year olds) and although designed for the schools market, it is very suitable for home education.
The materials come in two formats; CD ROM and folded cards.
Scholastic Primary Science is a course of science topics for children in years 1-6.
Suitable for both whole school and individual learning, the CD ROM provides 5 interactive lessons in a particular field of science. Fundamental science concepts are delivered in suitable language.
Interactive tests, games and tasks make learning fun and engaging.
Film clips, animations, audio and more enhance the learning experience.
Sound & Light
Conserve & Preserve
The cards are an excellent accompaniment to the CD ROM and when used together, the cards have symbols that indicate where relevant material is provided on the disc. They are also a very good stand alone resource.
Each card is a 4 sided, folded card (front cover/inner double page/back page).
The inner spread gives basic, age appropriate, facts about the topic with key scientific words printed in bold. There are a number of ‘THINK’ boxes which pose relevant questions for the child to consider.
The back page provides an activity in the form of suggested research, an experiment or other activity. Key words are provided for use when researching the subject.
Cards are available in packs of 30 (6 each of 5 topics) for class based work or as individual sets of 5 cards (1 each of 5 topics).
For home learning, the cards are an inspiring way to launch a new project or area of study as they promote research and ideas.
