Assignments in Junior Science
Each book in the Assignments in Junior Science series provides a selection of worksheets covering one or two major topics. The worksheets are independent, supplying most information necessary to formulate answers. In the answer section at the back of each book, sample answers to most tasks have been given.
As students work through these activities, they will interpret and analyse data including text, tables, graphs and diagrams; and organise and represent data in a variety of formats. They will also utilise basic scientific skills such as working with formulas, completing calculations, making generalisations and explaining what they have discovered. The activities incorporate a range of theoretical and practical scientific skills, and also involve the development of literacy skills.
