The Discovering Science Series
The Discovering Science series is fully aligned to Australian Curriculum science standards and content descriptions, making it an invaluable resource for science instruction in Australia. Each book in the series covers three interrelated science strands – Science Understanding, Science as a Human Endeavour and Science Inquiry Skills – as well as the related sub-strands.
The series 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.
Topics and themes covered in this level focus on developing an understanding of weather patterns; basic survival needs of humans, animals and plants; properties of materials; and shape and movement.
The Discovering Science Pack: Foundation to Year 6 includes all 7 books in the Discovering Science series, allowing teachers to ensure that their students are receiving instruction aligned to the new Australian Curriculum.
