Course Outline

Module What you’ll learn
Developing the curious mind Use the curious nature that children have and apply it to science so that they are asking questions, making guesses testing their predictions and making their own conclusions.
Experiments that encourage writing Demonstrate ways in which science experiments such as slime, tornadoes, mystery solving or code breaking can get children writing.Work on experiments that encourage a few words, a sentence and a few sentences.

Use experiments as a jumpstart to discussions on more complex concepts in science.

Science games that encourage writing Introduce science games that address memory, observation, creativity and curiosity to trick your child into writing.
Hands on science Apply the techniques discussed during linking writing to science through hands on activities.Apply the concepts learnt throughout the day to design your own activity.
