Learning science outside the classroom
Informal non-classroom based contexts make an important contribution to learning for pupils in many subjects, including science. This book demonstrates how a wide range of contexts for learning science can be used with pupils, including leaning at botanic gardens, museums, science centres and zoos. Using case studies and with contributions from practitioners in all fields of science education, this book offers guidance for teachers enabling them to widen the scientific understanding and experience of pupils.
