PREFACE In a recent development, the Government has made a decision toThe aspiration of the nation to become an industrialised society introduce English as the medium of instruction in the teaching anddepends on science and technology. It is envisaged that success in learning of science and mathematics. This measure will enableproviding quality science education to Malaysians from an early age pupils to keep abreast of developments in science and technologywill serve to spearhead the nation into becoming a knowledge in contemporary society by enhancing their capability and know-society and a competitive player in the global arena. Towards this how to tap the diverse sources of information on science written inend, the Malaysian education system is giving greater emphasis to the English language. At the same time, this move would alsoscience and mathematics education. provide opportunities for pupils to use the English language and hence, increase their proficiency in the language. Thus, inThe Science curriculum has been designed not only to provide implementing the science curriculum, attention is given toopportunities for pupils to acquire science knowledge and skills, developing pupils’ ability to use English for study anddevelop thinking skills and thinking strategies, and to apply this communication, especially in the early years of learning.knowledge and skills in everyday life, but also to inculcate in themnoble values and the spirit of patriotism.

  18. 18. Learning Area: Properties of Materials TEACHING AND LEARNING STRATEGIES Learning Objective: Knowing the importance of reuse, reduce and recycle of materials. Teaching and learning strategies in the science curriculum emphasise thoughtful learning. Thoughtful learning is a process that Learning Outcome: Practise reusing, reducing and helps pupils acquire knowledge and master skills that will help them recycling to conserve materials. develop their minds to the optimum level. Thoughtful learning can occur through various learning approaches such as inquiry, constructivism, contextual learning, and mastery learning. Learning Suggested Learning Pupils carry out activities about activities should therefore be geared towards activating pupils’ Activities reusing, reducing and recycling of critical and creative thinking skills and not be confined to routine or materials throughout the year. rote learning. Pupils should be made aware of the thinking skills and thinking strategies that they use in their learning.

The teaching and learning process should enable pupils to environment. acquire knowledge, master skills and develop scientific attitudes and noble values in an integrated manner. Having an intrest and curiosity towards the environment. Inquiry-discovery emphasises learning through experiences. Inquiry generally means to find information, to question and to Appreciating the balance of nature. investigate a phenomenon that occurs in the environment. Discovery is the main characteristic of inquiry. Learning through Being cooperative. discovery occurs when the main concepts and principles of science are investigated and discovered by pupils themselves. Through activities such as experiments, pupils investigate a phenomenonInculcating Patriotism and draw conclusions by themselves. Teachers then lead pupils to understand the science concepts through the results of the inquiry.The science curriculum provides an opportunity for the development Thinking skills and scientific skills are thus developed further duringand strengthening of patriotism among pupils. For example, in the inquiry process. However, the inquiry approach may not belearning about the earth’s resources, the richness and variety of suitable for all teaching and learning situations.

Visits and Use of External ResourcesDiscussion The learning of science is not limited to activities carried out in the school compound. Learning of science can be enhanced throughA discussion is an activity in which pupils exchange questions and the use of external resources such as zoos, museums, scienceopinions based on valid reasons.
