Old School Books · read about it

School Projects

In primary school we were encouraged to do basic research skills as a ‘project’. To enable us to learn how to do this we used a book series called ‘Read about It’ .

These simple little books allowed us to explore a topic by ourselves, probably around about the age of 7 and then answer the questions in the back of the book to produce the ‘project’.


The wonderful thing about this system to my mind was that it allowed the pupils to choose their own topic to research ( in my case insects and animals), but in theory this meant that there was something to interest every pupil. Now that has to be a good idea!
