Reading science Fact

Postby Lynn2 » Wed May 19, 2010 5:31 pm

Hello all

Can anyone give advice how to get a child to read science fact.My p5 girl doesnt enjoy reading info that is scientific as she finds it boring and dry.Is there anyway that we can help them?

I told her science fact u have to know, not just know but very clear,or how to answer sci exam...but never register in mind, just understand skin deep for the fact and go on...I know this is bad...

anyone can advice?thanks

cheers[/i]

Yes, get horrible science, my students and I love them!! The series is much better than murderous math anyway, I also see a lot of parents selling second hand horrible science for very good prices, maybe can think about getting from them?

Sorry to day this, but I find the Science textbook "useless". It is much better if you can get those Science revision guide book from popular. Those have consolidated facts and information.

hi lynn2,

I think you have to know what your child is interested in, and steer her in that direction. perhaps you can see what topics are being covered and borrow some books related to the topic? She'll learn a whole lot more than what's in the book and probably enjoy the journey too.

DS1 loves body and animal stuff. So I just go to the non-fiction part of the library to borrow books on those topics he likes....and he's able to get loads of info that I had no clue about. So I'm learning with him, and from him (which he absolutely adores).

Textbooks can be crap to read. I recall my upper sec bio class. first year I had no clue what was going on cos the textbook was dry like sawdust...then a savvy classmate told me about this other guide book that the teacher actually uses....and I saw light!
