Part of the Science & Technology Education Library book series (volume 2)


The following is a story about two primary school teachers, Sara and Elizabeth, and their science teaching experiences. Sara and Elizabeth have the same educational background including attending a teacher training school after completion of high school.

They teach in the same school district but in two different schools.
