Abstract

Science process skills (SPS) are skills that occur naturally and spontaneously in our minds as we think individually, collectively and logically about how the world or nature works. Science exposes the knowledge about how the world works. It is this scientific knowledge that builds up scientific character which modern science teachings tries to nurture in the learner. Consequently, SPS are transferable skills needed to undertake meaningful scientific enquiry. This paper highlighted the different science process skills and how some could be developed as we learn science in school. Some advantages and disadvantages were discussed and conclusion drawn.

Key words: Science, Development, Skills, Basic, Integrated.
