Have you seen the latest addition to Scootle?
This collection of learning sequences for primary science F–6 use an inquiry framework supported by resources from the Scootle collection to explore ideas in biology, physics, chemistry, and Earth and space.
Thought provoking science includes:
- A provocation to stimulate student inquiry
- resources that provide students with skill practise or allow them to experiment, investigate or problem-solve
- some ideas or a specific task to enable students to represent their learning
- links to the Australian Curriculum.
Designed by science educators, they are visually appealing, and easy to follow and implement.
Check out these learning sequences to get you started:
- Foundation: Predicting weather
- Year 1: Where does the sun go at night?
- Year 2: Hatching from eggs
- Year 3: Looking to the Moon
- Year 4: Physical properties of materials
- Year 5: Heating and cooling
- Year 6: What on Earth am I drinking?
You can find these and the other learning sequences by searching for ‘Thought provoking science’ or ‘Thought provoking maths’ within Scootle.
