Popcorn: Science Corner Resources
Science Corner is a series of four books in the Popcorn range that introduces children to key concepts in physical science, covering Light and Dark, Pushes and Pulls, Sound and Hearing and Using Electricity. These books can also be used in literacy as they feature many examples of report text, such as contents, non-chronological text, captions, index, glossary, and more.
The downloadable resources that support this series comprise teacher’s notes and a photocopiable worksheet for each title. These enable you to ensure that children have understood key concepts or ideas. Use the worksheets in a guided reading session, for individual projects, topic-based group work or for homework:
Electricity worksheet: Complete the flow chart to show how electricity can light up our homes.
Light and Dark worksheet: Write one reason for using different types of light.
Push and Pull worksheet: Fill in the blanks, sort the boxes and label one set ‘push’ and one set ‘pull’.
Sound and Hearing worksheet: Draw lines to show how sounds are made with different
instruments and draw the instruments.
