Teaching Primary Science Constructively helps readers to create effective science learning experiences for primary students by using a constructivist approach to learning - a method that has personal, social and cultural dimensions. Introductory chapters explain the principles of constructivism and their implications for teaching. They also discuss scaffolding strategies, planning and implementing sequential lessons, 'thinking and working scientifically' and general pedagogical issues, including concerns teachers may have about their own level of scientific knowledge. Subsequent chapters then focus on the major topic strands covered in most primary science syllabuses. Intended for pre-service as well as practicing teachers, it enables readers to successfully facilitate scientific learning by building upon students' pre-existing notions of how their world works from a scientific viewpoint.
