About the book
The Science Carnival series has been developed especially for the school in India in order to help students achieve the learning outcomes of the latest national curriculum, in the best possible manner.
Adopting the inquiry-based learning approach, Science Carnival uses engaging visuals and presentation formats with well-crafted activities to arouse pupils’ curiosity about the world around them. Starting with exploratory questions, Science Carnival spurs them to investigate the problem or idea which involves asking questions, collecting and analysing information, generating solutions, making decisions, justifying conclusions and taking action. This motivates pupils to understand key scientific concepts and encourages a spirit of inquiry.
Each chapter comprises several exercises that focus on scientific process skills (such as observing, comparing, classifying, inferring, measuring, communicating and predicting), reasoning skills and critical thinking skills to help pupils develop scientific knowledge and critical thinking abilities. They come in the form of Multiple-Choice Questions, Higher-Order Thinking skills and Value-Based questions, provided at the end of each lesson. These outcome-based exercise aim to test their understanding and application of scientific concepts and related skills to solve real life problems.
