Science: A STEM Approach: 2nd Class

Preview Book

STEM education prepares pupils for the roles of the future by developing skills such as innovation, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving, in addition to science skills such as questioning, observing, predicting, experimenting, analysing and communicating. Both in the Irish context and internationally, STEM subjects and their role in a pupil’s education are receiving greater attention.

The aim of Science: A STEM Approach is to give 2nd Class pupils a foundation in these subjects at primary level so that they have the knowledge, skills and confidence to build upon them in their further education. 

The book features:

  • four units based around learning concepts in Living Things, Energy and Forces, Materials and Earth and the Environment;
  • individual lesson plans in each unit to develop science and STEM concepts;
  • a STEM Project in each unit where pupils have to design and create, and apply their knowledge and skills;
  • ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom;
  • background information for the teacher;
  • resource sheets; and
  • a range of assessment activities.

Each unit also includes a STEM Project that links the science knowledge and skills learnt with aspects of engineering, design and technology, information technology and mathematics.

Each STEM Project also includes:

  • a design brief;
  • STEM curriculum links;
  • alternative project ideas;
  • advice on assessing STEM skills, understanding and processes; and
  • photocopiable resource sheets.
