Step into Science - A new series of Science activity books
Hands-on Science activities for young learners – A step-by-step guide for ECD practitioners and Foundation Phase teachers
The books in this series include a range of fun activities to instil a love for Science in young learners and to help them better understand the world they live in.
You don’t need to be a Science teacher to use the activities in this book – all activities are presented in a clear, step-by-step way.
No special equipment or resources are needed. Resources are generally common household objects and are easy and inexpensive to source.
Activities are linked to the CAPS topics for Life Skills to help learners see that scientiﬁc and technological principles are part of all aspects of everyday life.
Full-colour artwork and photos are used to show how to set up each activity.
Activities list the integrated developmental skills that learners will practise through the activity.
Additional notes explain some scientiﬁc principles where necessary.
Each activity includes a ‘Science sum up’ which explains the objective of the activity.
Books include photocopiable observation sheets that teachers may copy and adapt for their own classes.
