Enquiring Explorers – Fairground is a beautifully illustrated story and science activity book in one.
Charlotte and Zach are the best of friends and have been taken on an exciting day out. At Velocity Valley fairground they go on lots of rides, enjoy sweet treats and have a great deal of fun. Based on their day at the fair they need help to recreate some of the activities, using scientific thinking and planning to help to solve the problems.
Children experiment their way through the book as each exciting and engaging chapter has a problem to solve before moving on to the next. Explorers are encouraged to use a variety of enquiry types and encouraged to reflect on their outcomes and evaluate approaches used. Resources for each activity are easily accessible which allows the book to be used as a context for learning both within the class and as homeworking activities.
Enquiring Explorers – Fairground is accompanied by a downloadable resources for each chapter to support the activities.
