This learning guide is a self contained unit of study introducing students to what science is; safety rules; correct laboratory techniques; scientific drawing and scientific report writing. The guide is written sequentially so students progress logically through the topic.
It includes whole class and individual activities, which prepare students for future science units of study. Throughout the guide students will need to use language skill which acts to reinforce correct scientific language at this level.
Not forgetting the teacher, the guide comes complete with teacher notes and answers. Additionally, the student booklets remain as evidence of learning when it comes time to write reports and they are also perfect for student led conferences.
