Teaching Primary Science with Storytelling

Chris Smith and Jules Pottle


Hawthorn Press


Published:  May 2015


Here is a collection of innovative new and traditional stories for teaching science in primary schools, along with a set of follow-up activities for each topic. The stories cover commonly taught topics and are designed to be learned and retold orally by students. Each story comes with engaging and inclusive ways to link each story to science teaching, English language, and other subjects.

Science through Stories is a fun, one-stop shop for primary science teaching through stories that have been tested in the classroom. It provides a practical introduction to the Storytelling Schools approach and includes stories for biology, chemistry, physics, and other sciences for classes 1 through 6. An index is included.

This book will be inspiring and helpful to all primary school teachers, school administrators, teacher students, parents of young students, and especially science and English lecturers.
