Editorial Reviews

It stands to reason that teaching anything to level K-3 students would be fun, including scientific material. The four Australian educators build on that reasoning providing classroom techniques and child based science projects designed to help children make sense of their own experiences. The curriculum designs include teaching natural processes, properties of matter, chemical change, electricity, outer space, and animals, plants, and habitats. Lacks an index and bibliography, but includes illustrations and children's' work samples. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
