We at Creative Classrooms have expanded our exciting and interesting range of science resources that will aid in the study of this marvelous planet and beyond that we live in. Study of science at schools has increased over the last several years. Science fairs and experiments have been a common place in schools. Play develops inquiring minds and we want to help you, the educator, to find and foster those, Einsteins, Newtons and Rutherfords in your classroom. We have great resources and teaching supplies for the kid scientist. Tools that assist observation and exploration while our older children scientists will have fun interacting with models, microscopes and magnetic charts. We haven’t forgotten the educators and teachers, so check out our thought provoking posters and charts.
The study of science involves investigation, communication, participation, contribution and understanding the universe as a whole. The NZ school curriculum breaks science into five main areas:
The nature of science: which studies the knowledge of scientific processes, the living world which looks at the diversity of living things.
The living world: which looks at the diversity of living things.
Planets and beyond: deals with topics such as the earth science and interacting systems.
The physical world: explores everyday physical phenomena and the
Material world: involves the understanding of properties and structure of matter.
