My new class said they didn't like science very much 'because of all the paper!' I think they were filling in lots of work sheets and assessment tests!! So, I would like to start my science with a carousel of exploratory activites. e.g. magnets, bubbles with soap liquid, marbling to try and generate a bit of excitement before I start on the QCA units. Does anyone have any other ideas which are easy to set up and which groups of children could do on their own? Thanks for your help.
