This is an easy-to-use illustrated dictionary that includes over 1000 words and meanings to help young learners understand key science terms and concepts from the National Curriculum at school and at home.

Words are explained in a simple and clear way and there are examples, diagrams, illustrations and photographs to help children understand the concepts. More detail has been added to existing words such as different types of teeth or bones (canine, molar, incisor, ribs, tibia, fibula, radius, ulna). Related words are listed in helpful ‘Word build’ panels to develop vocabulary in key areas.

This dictionary builds scientific understanding and vocabulary using cross references, and the thematic supplement on key topics gives more in-depth understanding.
