TEACHER GUIDE BOOK, SCIENCE (Year 2, Part 2A) is designed as a guide for teachers with suggested activities making it easy for teachers to plan and deliver lessons effectively. It meets the requirements of the national curriculum, Kurikulum Standard Sekolah Rendah (KSSR) Sains, enabling teachers to plan fun and interesting Science lessons.
It suggests differentiated learning in three tiered activities for teachers to adapt and use. It presents hands-on activities that are STEM-based, promoting higher order thinking skills (HOTS) and 21st Century learning skills through investigations and problem solving. Following closely the Content and Learning Standards of Dokumen Standard Kurikulum dan Pentaksiran (DSKP) Sains, it covers all Performance Levels in the DSKP; offers STEM-based activities, QR codes to useful links, websites and videos; offers differentiated learning teaching tips, and incorporates HOTS, i-THINK and PAK -21 (21st century learning) strategies.
This Teacher Guide Book or TGB helps the teacher to plan and carry out differentiated learning, catering for all levels of students within a learning environment that is constructive and motivating through the integration of STEM components, HOTS and 21st Century Learning skills as well as Values.
It is our fervent hope that teachers will find this TGB to be helpful and relevant in their instructional planning and classroom delivery. TGB will not only be a Teacher Guide Book but will serve as the Teacher’s Great Buddy too!
