Constructing your primary school's science curriculum

ISBN: 978-1-927231-40-1

By Ally Bull, Chris Joyce, and Rose Hipkins

What might a future-oriented school science curriculum look like in Years 1–8?

This handbook shares ideas to help you design a coherent, school-based science curriculum that will meet the needs of your students and community. 

The authors were all teachers before becoming researchers and resource developers in science education, and they’ve thought hard about how science can help all children become “confident, connected and lifelong learners”. This resource is their way of supporting the important work that teachers do in classrooms throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. You will be familiar with some of the ideas (you probably already do them). Others will be more challenging. Wherever your school is on its curriculum journey, this book will provide inspiring ideas and practical decisions.
