Description

With the growing emphasis on cross-curricular teaching in the UK and the increasingly widespread shift in schools away from prescriptive schemes of work, many teachers are now looking towards more topic-based lesson planning. As a result, the demand for cross-curricular resources and support has increased. In response to this need the Centre for Science Education at Sheffield Hallam University brought together a small group of teachers, from both science and history disciplines, to design, develop and trial two unique cross-curricular resources for pupils currently involved in the transition from primary to secondary school level.
