The Active Science series is developed to comprehensively cover all the learning objectives of the Cambridge Primary Science curriculum framework (0097). The series adopts an Active Learning approach which allows learners to actively build their own understanding through exploration, discussion and problem-solving.
To encourage problem-based learning (PBL), each chapter starts with a case problem. In each chapter, learners will explore anchor investigation activities and hold discussions that precedes the teaching of every key concept. The learning of scientific concepts is aided by colourful illustrations and easy-to-read explanations. Learners will also learn how to apply scientific knowledge to the real world in the Science in Context feature. The well-crafted exercises and collaborative activities help the learners to build their knowledge they need to solve the case by the end of the chapter.
With great involvement in their learning, learners are challenged to think critically, reason logically and become effective problem solvers. They will also develop a love for science as they recognize its importance and relevance in their daily lives.
