Science Understanding

  • Living things have structural features and adaptations to help them survive in their environment (ACSSU043)
  • Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077)
  • The Earth is part of a system of planets orbiting around a star (the sun) (ACSSU078)
  • Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (ACSSU020)

Science as a Human Endeavour

  • Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions (ACSHE081)
  • Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE083)

Science Inquiry Skills

  • With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS231)
  • Identify, plan and apply the elements of scientific investigations to answer questions and solve problems using equipment and materials safely and identifying potential risks (ACSIS086)
  • Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS087)
  • Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS090)
  • Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS218)
  • Reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations (ACSIS091)
  • Communicate ideas, explanations and processes using scientific representations in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS093)
