Science is rightly a fundamental part of primary school education, but that doesn’t make it easy to teach - especially for teachers without a science background. This straight talking book from an experienced science writer and communicator looks at how to make the most of it and give primary school children a good grounding in the topic.

Getting Science sets out to engage the sense of wonder. The science in this book is not for the children, but for the adults who have to explain it. Starting with a whirlwind tour of the great milestones of modern science, Getting Science goes on to take each of the main curriculum topics and give it a new twist. It provides the information needed to understand the key topics better and be able to put them across with enthusiasm and energy.

This book will help teachers to get children excited by science, to understand science rather than just answer questions. Getting Science makes science fun, approachable and comprehensible to those who just don’t get it.

Clegg, a fellow of the RSA, offers guidance on turning grade-school science from a difficult subject into a fun one, written especially for teachers without a science background. Using lessons learned from writing popular science books, he shows how to put science into context, sprinkle it with amazing facts, find examples in real-life, and create hands-on experiments. After a whirlwind tour of the great milestones of modern science, the author takes on each of the main curriculum topics and gives it a new twist, providing the information needed to understand key science topics and put them across with enthusiasm and energy. The author has a master's degree in natural sciences from Cambridge University and regularly speaks at schools and science festivals. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
