Pledger Consulting, 2016. ISBN 97801876678470
Teacher reference. Primary School. Highly recommended. Literature to Support the Science Curriculum Foundation - 7 is a collection of fiction and some non-fiction books linked to the Australian Science curriculum. Teachers and librarians will have, at their fingertips, a collection of relevant texts for each year level as well as each Science strand. This book is a great way to make sure English and Science curriculums are well linked. Each book is matched to a year level and a Science strand and they have a brief synopsis of the story. Teachers can check if the books are in their school library or have their librarian order them in. The books could be used as a class novel, to make sure the class has a selection of themed books or to guide students to borrow age appropriate texts.
Highly recommended for all primary schools. This book is supportive of South Australia where year 7 students are still in primary school.
Editor's note: It is available here.
