Essential Thinking Through Science extends the thinking skills approach to science to lower-attaining pupils. Following the structure of the original texts and QCA Scheme of Work, it includes activities to develop the skills needed to investigate, reason and communicate science. The carefully controlled language level of the text and the clear diagrams make the concepts accessible to a wide range of pupils. Questions and instructions for activities are broken down into small steps to make them easier to follow, and they are supported by a wide range of editable worksheets on the CD-ROM. The Pupil's Books are supported by Teacher's Books that contain answers to questions, advice on pupils' misconceptions, teaching tips, suggestions for timing, information on attainment levels, and notes for technicians.
