Using the Environment 2: Investigations Part 2
The Science 5/13 unit Using the environment 2: investigations part 2 follows on from part one focusing on what and how children can investigate in the outside environment. The first three chapters are concerned with helping children to become more aware of the things that change: the weather, living things and the landscape. Two contexts for investigations, available to all children are then taken as the starting points for a wide range of activities – the playground and birds. A final chapter concerns children’s writing inspired by their investigations of the world outside the classroom.
1. How does the weather change?
2. How do plants and animals change?
3. The changing landscape
4. The children’s playground as a centre of interest
5. Work with birds
6. Writing about the environment
