Written by PSTT Fellow Paul Tyler, with Alex Farrer.
See Through Science is a fabulous set of fifteen high-resolution digital images (included with the book as a digital download). The book is packed with practical advice for teachers about using the image pack to develop children’s observation, questioning and discussion skills.
The images have been selected to be inspiring and thought-provoking. They cover a range of scientific phenomena, enabling children to explore and discuss science in a variety of contexts, and to appreciate many different applications of science. Each image comes with associated background information and key scientific words.
“These photographic images provide a fantastic hook to science lesson topics that are accessible to all the children.”
“The images inspire awe and wonder while developing questioning and explaining.”
