You guys rock – the webinars are ALWAYS usefulTeacher
Nature of science
The nature of science guides teachers in science to build the skills required by scientists at all levels, from the basics of observation to the more complex skills of collaboration, investigating and decision making within science. It is important within the classroom environment that students have opportunities to build and practise these skills in order for them to become confident science-literate citizens.
The article How the Hub can help has helpful tips on making the most of the Hub and includes videos explaining various aspects of our site.
Our recorded webinar What does the Hub look like in the classroom? demonstrates what it looks like to plan using the Hub and how you might adapt resources for your students.
