The text-books have to realise the aims and objectives of science instruction and the aims and objectives of the course in general (D. Baker and Piburn M. 1991). The text-books of science have to meet the individual as well as social requirements. Furthermore, research has shown that using well designed textbooks or curriculum material can positively influence teacher beliefs and practices, aiding curriculum implementation (Davis, 2009; Newton and Newton, 2006; Davis, 2003a; Izsak and Sherin, 2003; McKenney, 2001) So, the contents of the science text-books should be such that it can fulfil the social as well as individual needs.
