The key features include: examples from the entire range of QCA scheme of work topics for key stages 1 and 2- practical strategies to improve pupils' learning- and, support for teachers who want to improve their own scientific subject knowledge. Michael Allen describes over 100 common misconceptions and their potential origins, and then explains the correct principles. He suggests creative activities to help students to grasp the underlying scientific concepts and bring them alive in the classroom. This easy to navigate guide is grouped into three parts: life processes and living things- materials and their properties- and, physical processes.
