National Education was launched in 1997 as a vital component of the education process in Singapore schools. The purpose of National Education is to develop national cohesion and a sense of national identity among students. It hopes to help students better appreciate the concept of nationhood by educating them about our unique history, culture, values and instinct for survival.
This book was conceptualized to bring together Singapore’s unique identity and Science Education. Each question in this book has something uniquely Singaporean about it, be it history, people, cuisine, culture or progress, and yet used to test students’ Science concepts. Not only will students learn more about their nation, they will also get ample practice in answering exam-type structured questions. All the questions are based on the latest Singapore Primary Science syllabus.
Answers have been provided at the end of the book so students can check their answers and understanding of concepts.
