About Basic Science Scheme of Work for Primary 3

Basic Science for Primary 3 covers the fundamental science topics suitable for pupils of that age group. The scheme of this class is designed to expose the pupils to measurement of length and mass, forms of energy etc.

Some of the topics covered in this class are; measurement of length, measurement of mass, forms of energy, mirror-length formation, forms of technology, air in motion, water, soil, plants etc.

The educator should make sure to explain the new terms to the pupils with concrete examples and they should be encouraged to do the same. By the end of the academic session, the pupils should be able to understand the concept of measurement(length mass and time); put these standards of measurement in use; identify air in motion and its importance to the environment; plants and animals as living things in the society; identify the various forms of energy and how they improve daily activities.
