  6. Graphic Organisers for Science

    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.
