Talking Science

This pack has been developed by subject specialists to support science learning at KS2/3. The audio-visual pack combining Talking Charts and CD Roms provides key information about different subject areas and explains processes and procedures. Games then function as a comprehension exercise, challenging children to remember and apply their knowledge. The charts can be tailored to suit specific groups – teachers can recor their own information onto any soundspot.(Age 9-14)

The pack includes:

• 1 PENpal • 20 A3 Interactive Science posters • 4 A3 Laminated Science
Processes posters • 2 Science CD Roms • 300 Recordable Talking Stickers.

Charts included in this pack are :

Science Investigation Charts

Gives continuous support for the full investigative cycle - from planning to manipulating data, evaluation, and eventual writing-up of the aural hints and definitions of subject specific vocabulary. Record answers and ideas before writing them down. This is a fantastic way to monitor children’s development.
