HOW are animals classified? How do you know if you have a large or small lung capacity?
Find out the answers to these and many more interesting questions through the interesting activities found in Investigating science in this week's NiE (Newspaper-in-Education) pullout which focuses on science topics.
The pullout aims to help students enjoy learning science and provide teachers with a lively teaching approach. Featuring experiments students can carry out using The Star and in the classroom, the pullout is based on the primary and secondary science syllabi.
With Chinese New Year just around the corner, Stuff@school is devoting one whole issue to this major festival.
Students can look forward to reading how past generations celebrated Chinese New Year as well as find out what the Year of the Dog holds in store for them.
Learn about the differences between words of similar-meaning, for example, talk and speak, in this week's Mind Our English.
