Why should children learn about science? How does scientific discovery impact on their lives and the opportunities available to them beyond school? Get Them Thinking Like Scientists! combines practical activities to help children aged 7-13 develop their scientific enquiry skills, with insights into the attitude that scientists apply to their craft. The activities explore different working methods - such as how scientists tap into and develop their creativity and how they solve problems and deal with contradictions - and are supported by strategies for thinking to develop children's scientific literacy. The activities also encourage students to build speculation and reasoning skills in order to understand and express their opinions about all subject areas. Steve Bowkett, author and education consultant, with support from experienced science teachers from the primary and secondary phases, provides the key concepts and learning benefits of each strategy, along with a series of activities, extension ideas and useful links. Related resources can be found on the series companion website.
