Teachers use models to help pupils make sense of their observations

About. Models offer a way to advance understanding in science. They help students to 'see' a beating heart or food digestion; the solar system or an ecosystem and they help by visualising abstract ideas such as particle theory or energy transfer. This 3-page guide, 'harvested' from a larger DfES document, begins to classify the models and analogies used around age 13.

Pedagogical content. An opportunity for teachers to discuss the use of modelling(ta) and visualisation(ta) in Key stage 3 science (edit)
