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

A series of “Learning and Teaching Resource CDs for Primary General Studies” is developed by the Education Bureau to support schools in implementing Science and Technology education in the General Studies curriculum. Through various learning activities that arouse their curiosity towards the natural and technological world, students explore and learn in an authentic environment which in turn help them construct knowledge and skills in relation to science and technology. This resource package is designed according to the “General Studies for Primary Schools Curriculum Guide”, with themes on "Light, Sound and Electricity”, “The Living World”, “Force and Simple Machine” etc., and emphasising scientific inquiry as one of the learning and teaching strategies. During the inquiry process, students can develop “science process skills”. The resource packages also include STEM education related learning activities with a view to strengthening students’ ability to integrate and apply knowledge and skills.
