The Kiss Series is a highly flexible course for the changing needs of New Zealand secondary school science. The course follows a learning-through-activity approach with class, group and individual work allowing students to work at their own pace. Themes are developed from the science of the real world. Lavishly illustrated in full colour, each of the four books in the series has over 55 self- contained units plus sets of readings provided as an opportunity for discussion and extension work. Each book is accompanied by a comprehensive range of photocopiable teacher materials so that teachers are provided with all the resources they need to design their own science programme.
