Abstract:

Dramatic Science is an invaluable tool for any teachers and primary science leaders who have classes of 5 - 10 year olds. It provides the busy professional with a range of tried and tested techniques to use drama as a support and aid to the teaching of science to young children. The techniques within this book offer innovative and creative strategies for teaching a challenging area of the curriculum and broadening teachers' own scientific knowledge and understanding. All the strategies in this book have been shown to work effectively in a range of primary schools. The approaches described offer innovative and creative strategies for teaching a challenging area of the curriculum and broadening teachers' own scientific knowledge and understanding. All the strategies in this book have been shown to work effectively in a range of primary schools. The approaches described offer an inclusive and participatory way to teach science and the authors provide a pedagogical commentary on the ways that teachers have tried the techniques and how they have worked best. Reflective discussion on the strategies will include discussion about how the children have responded to these strategies and how the drama experiences have impacted on their learning.
