Science for Primary and Early Years is a comprehensive guide to the subject knowledge requirements for the teaching of science in early years settings and elementary schools. This second edition consists of activities to help the reader extend their own understanding of science. Part One explores understanding the nature of science, processes of planning, carrying out and evaluating scientific investigations, collecting and using data, hypothesizing, predicting, fair testing, use of correct terminology and understanding health and safety as well as key ideas in science that underpin subject knowledge. Part Two builds on these ideas as it explores in more detail life and living processes, the environment, electricity and magnetism, light, sound and the earth in space. This is a set book for the UK's Open University Course, 'Ways of Knowing: language, mathematics and science in the early years'.
