SCIENCE: Health, Technology, and Environment

This book is a worktext designed primarily to develop students scientific literacy so that they will become well-informed and participative citizens who are able to make judgments and decisions linked with real life situations.

The content of this worktext meet the requirements and standards of the K to 12 Science Curriculum set forth by the Department of Education or DepEd.

This worktext is learner-centered and inquiry-based, emphasizing the use of evidence in constructing explanations. It integrates science, health, technology, and environment.

The science ideas and principles will develop students to become scientifically, technologically, and environmentally literate and productive members of society who are critical problem solvers, responsible stewards of nature, innovative and creative citizens, informed decision-makers, and effective communicators.
Each Worktext from Grade 1 to 6 follow a sequence of domain or strands per quarter. This is indicated in the four units.

Unit 1: Matter
Unit 2: Living Things and Their Environment
Unit 3: Force, Motion and Energy
Unit 4: Earth and Space

After each unit, two features are included. These are the SUMMATIVE TEST and the PERFORMANCE TASK.

With the four strands in each unit and the above components, we hope to engage you to enjoy breaking through Science and develop you further to become stewards of God's creation!

SCIENCE AND HEALTH: Care for the Enviroment,
Grades 1 to 6 (UBD Approach)

This book was designed primarily to help students gain a functional understanding of science concepts and principles linked with real life situations. It was also produced to help students acquire science skills as well as scientific attitude and values needed in solving everyday problems that pertain to health and sanitation, nutrition, food production, and the environment and its conservations.

Science and Health concepts in this book include opportunities for students to interact with their surroundings. It helps them understand how science and health relate to the understanding of their immediate environment and application of skills, attitudes in solving varied life situations.

Most of the activities are pupil oriented and child-centered. These activities are all within the level of their experiences and mental capabilities. Students will learn by actual first hand experience using skills in observing, describing, comparing, classifying, measuring, communicating, making inference, formulating hypothesis, controlling variables, predicting, and experimenting. They employ group dynamics or cooperative learning that develop pupils' leadership and scientific skills and attitudes.

Through this book, you will learn to apply Science and Health concepts and principles for your improvement, develop further your intellectual skills in creating awareness and appreciation of God's creation, and stimulate you to promote sustainable development, living up to your role as steward of God's creation.
