A good freebie for anyone with a primary school going kid, and since term break is still on, it should keep them occupied.
ACTIVATE - Adults and Children Together Investigating Virtually Anything That Exists is a booklet that you can download so that parents and children can investigate science at home.
This booklet has been put together to help support children with curriculum based Scientific enquiry (Sc1) activities. The main focus of Sc1 is to enable children to think through and carry out scientific investigations themselves. In addition parents are encouraged to work closely with their children as they carry out their investigation and if necessary prompt them with questions such as;
What are we hoping to find out?
What safety concerns are there (if any)?
How will you know when the experiment is finished?
A full list of questions are detailed in the booklet.
