Learning and Teaching Resource CD for Primary General Studies (Science and Technology)

“Learning and Teaching Resource CD for Primary General Studies” is developed by the Education Bureau. It aims to support schools in the implementation of Science and Technology education in the General Studies curriculum. Through various learning activities, students are able to explore and learn in an authentic environment, so that they can construct knowledge and skills of science and technology, and at the same time, arouse their curiosity towards the natural and technological world. This resource package is designed according to the “General Studies for Primary Schools Curriculum Guide 2011”, focusing on themes of Light Sound Electricity”, “The Living World”, “Force and Simple Machine” etc., and emphasizing the scientific inquiry learning. During the inquiry process, students are provided with opportunities to develop “science process skills”. The resource package also includes learning activities related to “Science, Technology and Mathematics education” (STEM education), aiming at strengthening students’ integrative learning and application skills, and applying their knowledge of STEM education in learning.
