Science & Technology Ideas for the Under 8s. SATIS.
Stringer, John, Ed.
Ever since the publication of the age 8-14 materials by the Science and Technology in Society (SATIS) Project of the Association for Science Education (ASE), teachers have been looking for a similar resource for younger children. This book of units is a first step to answering that request. In the SATIS project, science and technology have always been linked and have fit easily with one another. SATIS provides a context for experiencing the skills of investigation and communication. The materials are reproducible for use within the purchasing institution. The parts of each unit are mostly free-standing and all of the units have been checked for safety. Chapters include: (1) Anoraks; (2) Bike Helmets; (3) Clinics; (4) Fat Cat; (5) Growing Grass; (6) Making Music; (7) Mini Beast Movers; (8) Nuts and Seeds; (9) Paper; and (10) Roller Coaster. Each unit begins with an outline or introduction, followed by National Curriculum links; learning outcomes for children; activity outlines; learning environment; poems, stories, and songs; special materials; and safety issues, which are followed by activities and questions.
