SCISP Teachers’ Guide 1: Building Blocks
The main purpose of the first section of the Schools Council Integrated Science Project (SCISP) sample scheme was to introduce the Integrated Science Project's concepts of pattern and problem. Qualitative and quantitative generalisations were introduced, and patterns were used to solve problems. The problems were both practical and theoretical, everyday and laboratory. The importance of science to society was also briefly met for the first time.
The work on Building Blocks then started with the largest building blocks and worked down in size to the electron. For most of the building blocks the measuring of size was discussed, the size of the building block was calculated, and the connections with other building blocks emphasised.
1. Patterns and problems
2. Galaxies, planets and the Earth
3. Communities and populations
4. Looking at organisms
5. Cells and more cells
7. Atoms and giant structures
8. The electron, ions and giant structures
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.
