Reading and Writing in Science
Category : Hot Tips
There are many fiction and informational narrative texts that can be used effectively to develop ideas in Science. Use texts such as ‘Toroa’s Journey’, or ‘The Three Bears (Sort Of)’ to explore scientific concepts, information and vocabulary. Read and discuss these texts, then use them as models of different ways to present information in Science. Encourage students to innovate on these texts when writing to show their understandings in a variety of text forms. This is a great way to make links between reading and writing and provide opportunities for students to explore different ways of writing information texts.
