Part of the series Science: A STEM Approach.
Prepare your students for the roles of the future! Minds will be challenged and imaginations unleashed as students develop skills such as innovation, creativity, reasoning and problem-solving; and technical science skills such as questioning, observing, systematic experimentation, and analysis and interpretation of data.
Feel confident delivering a comprehensive and contemporary science program, and ease your way into STEM projects with Science: A STEM approach.
Each book in this series features:
- four units with four STEM projects, organised by sub-strand - Biological sciences, Chemical sciences, Earth and space sciences and Physical sciences
- easy-to-follow lesson plan format, with term overview at the start of each unit
- ideas for incorporating technology in the classroom
- background information for the teacher
- resource sheets, if required
- assessment sheets provided for science knowledge
- STEM project for the remainder of the term (2-4 weeks)
Each STEM project includes:
- a design brief
- STEM curriculum links
- alternative project ideas
- a group rubric
- resource sheets, if required

Please find below the Australian Curriculum links for Science: A STEM Approach - Year 5.
- 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)
