This paper suggests that cybernetics and general systems theory, as a unity science, serve as a unifying language and method in science teaching. As they stand today, our school sciences are taught as separate, and indeed fragmented subjects. Cybernetics and general systems theory have developed a set of transdisciplinary concepts that can be used in a wide range of scientific contexts. Hence, should such a set of concepts be woven into the language of the science teacher, then they would act as common conceptual thread running through science. They would help to present to the student the beautiful unity that is science—a unity of pattern and of structure.
