  • Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties that can influence their use (ACSSU074)
  • Earth's surface changes over time as a result of natural processes and human activity (ACSSU075)
  • Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076)

Science as a Human Endeavour

  • Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE061)
  • Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions (ACSHE062)

Science Inquiry Skills

  • With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on prior knowledge (ACSIS064)
  • With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment (ACSIS065)
  • Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately (ACSIS066)
  • Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends (ACSIS068)
  • Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings (ACSIS216)
  • Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not (ACSIS058)
  • Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations (ACSIS071)
