This Year 4 science teacher and student book is fully aligned to the Australian Curriculum and covers each of the three interrelated science strands – Science Understanding, Science as a Human Endeavour and Science Inquiry Skills – as well as the related sub-strands. It includes subject planners, week-by-week lesson plans and assessment record sheets for the teachers, as well as worksheets, resource and self-evaluation sheets for the students. Each lesson plan includes content descriptions, required resources, skills, a step-by-step activities section, extension activities and assessment ideas. The activities for each week take a simple yet imaginative approach. Young scientists will enjoy developing their skills – from predicting, investigating and observing to cooperating, reporting and role-playing – whilst learning about science and its place in their everyday lives. The activities build on several learning areas covered in the previous levels and also introduce new topics. Students develop an understanding of the Earth's surface and its changes, such as weathering and erosion; explore food chains and habitats; learn about using materials for building, fuel and insulation; and investigate the effects of forces, such as air, water and gravity.
