Classroom activities and videos of useful science experiments and demonstrations for the primary classroom are integrated into each chapter to translate concepts into teaching practice. Chapter content is linked to the National Curriculum in England and the Curriculum for Excellence, demonstrating how you could relate understanding to the relevant curriculum taught in schools.
