Science Understanding

  • Living things can be grouped on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things (ACSSU044)
  • A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046)
  • Earth's rotation on its axis causes changes, including night and day (ACSSU048)
  • Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another (ACSSU049)

Science as a Human Endeavour

  • Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE050)
  • Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions (ACSHE051)

Science Inquiry Skills

  • With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on prior knowledge (ACSIS053)
  • With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment (ACSIS054)
  • Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately (ACSIS055)
  • Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends (ACSIS057)
  • Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings (ACSIS215)
  • Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not (ACSIS058)
  • Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations (ACSIS060)
