US$ 14.57

Science plays an integral role in our lives. We are curious and constantly seek answers to questions through investigations and conducting experiments.

The New Integrated Science Book 4 is designed to engage the students in acquiring the scientific skills and attitudes that will enable them to work like scientists. The book is aligned to the National Standards Curriculum (NSC) for Grade 4. It is student friendly and caters to all learners.

Multiple opportunities are provided for them to practice the 21st century skills - creativity, collaboration, communication and critical thinking. Throughout the book students are given tasks to become active participants in the learning process. Teachers will act as facilitators as they monitor and foster learning.

Students are also challenged to deepen their understanding of the topics through research and investigation. At the end of each unit is a review assessment so all stake holders can find out how much of the content was grasped.

The writers are confident that this book will guide students in fulfilling the requirements set out in the curriculum and in so doing prepare them to be able to master the Primary Exit Profile (PEP).
