"How Does the Shopping Go along This Black Road, Mummy?"
Weavers, Gaynor
Primary Science, n111 p12-14 Jan 2010
The beginning of any science activity for young learners is "play." Exploration and investigation are the building blocks of science, especially in the foundation years, and well-planned play in a safe environment will provide a structure within which children can explore fruitfully. In this article, the author provides examples of how "play" acts as a starting point for enquiry. She explores some simple activities that are designed to provide effective, first-hand experiences for children. (Contains 3 figures.)
