Pack 2: living systems
The University of York Science Education Group ensured that all the Science in the Environment packs were organised according to broad environmental themes. Within each pack, a number of specific contexts were used to introduce the science content. In addition, each pack focused on the acquisition of particular skills and introduced broader aspects of science or the environment.
