The Spellbound Science resources were developed through the PUPPETS project. They contain stories designed to create problems for children to solve. These innovative, original stories provide starting points for scientific enquiry and help children to develop scientific understanding in the middle years of primary school. Each story ends with a Concept Cartoon where the characters in the book argue about their ideas as a starting point for children's discussion. The stories come with a bank of key science vocabulary, a range of ideas for different kinds of enquiries, key questions and background science in child-friendly language.
