Science Specials Needs Supplement
From CIEC Promoting Science, this book contains a range of science investigations that have been adapted for secondary-school students with particular learning needs. In these activities appropriate teaching and learning strategies allow special needs students to play a full part within science activities. Additionally, the teacher guidance notes make them valuable to teachers with limited science or special needs teaching experience.
The activities in these materials are:
A demonstration of wave action and making and testing concrete samples.
Looking at the colour that lorries used to transport chocolate are painted in relation of the heat they absorb.
Investigating materials used to make packaging for eggs or to make safety helmets.
Investigating different materials and the heat loss from a sleeping bag.
Water for industry
Investigating materials used for water pipes, filtering dirty water and using water for cooling.
Investigating floating and sinking.
All activities contain extensive teacher guidance and student sheets.
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.
