From engaging science experiments, effective role-play scenarios and useful digital technologies through to intriguing Maker spaces, colourful science fairs and community collaboration in your school, there are so many ways that you can be the spark that ignites a passion in students for understanding how the world works. This book takes you through the practical and realistic ways you can teach the kind of science that kids care about!
Discover how to address students’ science misconceptions, teach science with limited resources and ensure primary students can work to the scientific method in fun challenges where they can explore science in meaningful ways they’ll remember.
It’s time to reinvigorate your love of teaching and bring about sustained active learning. Your classroom can become a glowing example of how to engage students in STEM and a beacon for the greater community.
It’s not just about ‘teaching’ … your job is to inspire!
The book was written with a real passion for both science and teaching. The techniques are tested and proven, the results for your students will be outstanding! It’s time to shine in your classroom and even in community events, so your students can understand how science affects how the world works, maybe one day they can make a significant scientific contribution thanks to you and the spark you helped ignite.
Designed by qualified scientists and peer reviewed by PhD students.You conduct 23 detailed chemistry experiments, with each experiment sheet outlining the materials required, the method used, an explanation to the expected results and additional fun chemfacts related to the experiments. E.g. Creating colourful chemical reactions, growing sparkling crystals and making a slime polymer.Contains
*Safety goggles not provided for supervising adult. You will need to source some simple ingredients from a local supermarket.*
1 in 5 men and 1 in 8 women are colour blind. What will you discover when wearing this shirt?
For perfect fit:
Chest: measure from one arm pit to the other
Length: measure from the bottom to the top of shoulder.
Add 1 to 2 cm for shrinking if you want a loose fit.
L: Chest 57cm and Length 69cm.
These beads will change under UV light due to the UV energy exciting the molecular structure of the bead surface. Useful for teaching about the ozone layer, fluorescence or electron shells. The pack contains enough beads to make a small bracelet.
Powered by household baking powder, it surfaces and dives over and over again.
Sometimes the simplest experiments are the most impressive. Watch as the density of the sub changes causing it to float and sink in the water.
This kit by Science Time is designed for kids interested in simple light experiments.
The contents come together to form a film viewer which can view 3 enclosed slides (1 x insect, 1 x animal and 1 x ocean). The film viewer also doubles as a periscope to look over solid objects!
Covers a number of forensic techniques including chromatography, fingerprint analysis and taking footprint casts. Identify your own suspect!
Contains necessary chemicals, blotting paper, paint brush, magnifying glass and instructions.
You will need to purchase different pen brands for the chromatography experiment.
Create patterns in the sand
Make pretty pictures in the sand as the pendulum bob swings back and forth.
Try experimenting with the angle of release to create strange patterns based on harmonics! We’ve got ours next to the water cooler 🙂
Classic construction of an old science toy. With a bit of reverse engineering, your students can manipulate light to create the effects seen with this kaleidoscope. Printed graphics makes it a hit!
Create 60 planes from 20 unique designs. Easy to follow instructions and designs printed on each sheet. Great for teaching flight… which design can fly the furthest? Apply Bernoulli’s theory!
A cute little flower pot with pre-planted grass seeds impregnated in the doll head.
Just soak the head and the Lolium perenne will germinate in no time! Buy 2 and you will able to run a controlled botany experiment such as light vs. dark (chlorophyll production) or saltwater vs. freshwater and more.
Choking hazard: Not suitable for children 3 years and under.
The rattleback is a science curiosity whose ancient and mysterious properties capture the attention of all ages.
This little oddity has a natural spin bias, in that if you spin it one way it stops and then spins the other way! Why? Check out it’s center of balance. Being clear and curved it also acts as a lens that magnifies vertically.
Ooze your Daddy? We have discovered the slipperiest and gooiest slime ever. This slime is super-wet. It’s super-slime. It is non-toxic and water soluble so if it sticks to fabric – simply wash it off.
Item Made from: Guar gum, Tub: PS + PE
This kit uses the Sun’s power to make patterns for you to keep. The reactive surface is designed to allow sunlight to change it; blocked areas don’t react and so a print can be made.
