Description

The use of graphic organisers is an important part of
science learning. Students




  • visualise abstract science
    content




  • examine science concepts
    closely and represent them in a variety of ways




  • break apart and demonstrate
    steps of scientific inquiry




  • show understandings of science
    processes




  • communicate science concepts
    and processes




  • connect new ideas to previous
    knowledge




  • compare and communicate science
    events and concepts.




In today’s world scientific literacy has become a necessity
for everyone. The learning, critical thinking, decision making and problem
solving that are part of science inquiry serve students in all areas of life
and learning. Research shows that the use of visual tools increases performance
in all these areas. The goals of most modern curricula encourage student
engagement in “hands-on” and “minds-on” activities; graphic organisers give
students a way to evaluate and communicate what they’ve learned through a
combination of the two. They offer a workable way to manage the content,
concepts and processes of science.


Graphic Organisers for Science is one workbook resource
needed by every student and teacher. Here are 59 graphic organisers for
analysing and communicating the nature of science; looking closely at specific
organisms, substances and events in science; connecting specific ideas to the
big concepts of science, and understanding or demonstrating specific science
processes. Use these organisers and tools to spark student thinking and enhance
their science skills.
