      Abstract

      What role do chemical experiences’ play in helping children grasp the particulate nature of matter and use this idea to explain observed phenomena?

      How do we use the art and aesthetics of lithography to introduce children to chemical reactions? What skills would children learn from this multisensorial and fun approach to science? 

      Why is it important for teachers to trace the history of evolving definitions of elements and atoms, and communicate the conditional nature of their validity? 

      Can we use poetry to teach chemistry? How would it change the ways in which students engage with science? 

      Join us in exploring these questions in three sections of our latest issue – Our Chemical World, I am a Scientist, and Snippets.

        Abstract

        Does the teaching and learning of science change when we give importance to relationships with people, other beings, and the places they inhabit? 

        How do we use an exploration of water to help children connect basic science concepts with personal experiences and pressing environmental issues? 

        Can observing, exploring, and working in their natural environment offer children and teachers the opportunity to cultivate an intuitive understanding of the nature and process of science? 

        What personal choices and simple actions in our everyday lives can help us begin engaging with climate change? 

        Join us in exploring these questions in the theme section of this issue — Teaching as if the Earth Matters.
