Case Study Package: Making space themed pop-up books
Amanda Rawlings, teacher at Goodlyburn Primary School in Perth and Kinross, took part in our Authors Live Champions Programme in 2014. Amanda used Lucy Hawking's Authors Live broadcast as the starting point for a brilliant project which brought together literacy, art and science. Lucy Hawking is the author of the hugely popular George Green books, a series of adventure stories which aim to explain complex science to a young audience. Inspired by Lucy's books, pupils at Goodlyburn Primary School researched facts about our solar system and made their own space themed pop-up books to share what they learned with younger pupils.
