First Steps in Science (FSIS) Pupil's Books for Years 4 to 6 respond fully to the Revised Primary Curriculum (RPC) for science from the MOE.

These new editions provide a sound introduction to science as a process and a means of acquiring skills. The emphasis is a hands-on, investigative approach, while incorporating the current focus on career infusion and the development of positive attitudes towards self, others, science and the environment. Pupils will be motivated to learn and enjoy exploring the world of science.

FSIS Pupil's Books are designed to work in tandem with the Activity Books in helping the pupils to further explore the topics covered in the curriculum. Used together, the Pupil's Book and the Activity Book for each year foster a sound grounding in scientific concepts reinforced by hands-on practice. 

This revised edition now includes more alternative assessment and activities that appeal to the multiple intelligences.

 

Key Features:

  • With few exceptions, the text is organized using Unit Titles and Focus Questions taken from the RPC
  • Clear, detailed diagrams help teach concepts
  • The new Challenge feature indicates that an activity can be used with more advanced students, but these activities are also wonderful opportunities to teach children how to deal with difficulty. Once they accomplish these tasks, their self-confidence grows and they become more willing to take on new challenges. This will help save time in the classroom.
  • The new Looking Ahead feature helps teachers and students prepare for activities by advising when to start collecting or preparing items that will be needed for future activities.
  • Wide range of assessment strategies used; traditional (paper and pencil) methods are represented, but performance-based methods are also used. This is ideal for classes with students of varying ability levels.
  • Each unit is followed by an end-of-unit assessment, consisting of 5 multiple-choice questions and five or six questions using a variety of other question types. The multiple-choice questions can be used to give students valuable practice.
