Glimpses of Science: Multimedia-Enhanced Hands-On Activities for Primary School Students
Hatsidimitris, George; Connor, Rick; Ginges, Jacinda; Wolfe, Joe
Teaching Science, v56 n3 p39-42 Sep 2010
"Glimpses of Science" is the outcome of collaboration between the University of New South Wales and four primary schools in the Sydney metropolitan region. A prototype kit on the topic of sound was developed and demonstrated by the team. This kit formed the basis for further science activities to be designed and produced in conjunction with the teachers. Students formed small groups to conduct hands-on activities that investigated the topics of sound, pendulums, light and energy. Instructional multimedia was used to illustrate certain aspects of the hands-on activities and also as a prompt to generate class discussion. Student and teacher feedback was positive. The resources are available on the web. (Contains 1 table and 2 figures.)
