Science, Models and Toys, Stage Three
This Science 5/13 unit for teachers indicates work that can be undertaken in upper years of primary schools, in middle schools or in secondary schools by children who have reached stage three (making greater use of abstract thinking). Some of the toys chosen are dealt with in the unit Science from Toys Stages One and Two, so the work suggested follows on as a natural development, using the resources and know-how of the secondary school combined with primary school methods.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
