These two-week units provide teachers with structured lessons for delivering essential knowledge and understandings for science. They are aligned to the Australian Curriculum and for use in South Australian schools.
It is important to remember, the units have been developed as an additional resource and are not intended to replace the curriculum schools currently provide.
The activities can be used in a variety of contexts, including learning from home or at school. It remains important that the learning intentions and expectations for these units are clearly communicated to students and families.
While parents and carers may be needed to support students to understand instructions and attempt tasks, they must not be expected or encouraged to act on behalf of the teacher.
The units have been designed for students to complete over a two week period.
