How can you unlock your own creativity to help children learn science creatively?

How do you bring the world of ‘real science’ into the classroom?

Where does science fit in a creative curriculum?

Teaching Science Creatively explores how creative teaching can harness primary-aged children’s sense of wonder about the world around them. It offers innovative starting points to enhance your teaching and highlights curiosity, observation, exploration and enquiry as central components of children’s creative learning in science.

Illustrated throughout with examples from the classroom and beyond, this book explores the core elements of creative practice supporting both teacher and children to develop their knowledge and skills. Key themes include:

  • The role of play in early scientific learning
  • Developing children’s own interests and ideas into creative enquiry
