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 6.
- The growth and survival of living things are affected by physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094)
- Changes to materials can be reversible or irreversible (ACSSU095)
- Sudden geological changes and extreme weather events can affect the Earth's surface (ACSSU096)
- Electrical energy can be transferred and transformed in electrical circuits and can be generated from a range of sources (ACSSU097)
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 (ACSHE098)
- Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions (ACSHE100)
Science Inquiry Skills
- With guidance, pose clarifying questions and make predictions about scientific investigations (ACSIS232)
- Identify, plan and apply the elements of scientific investigations to answer questions and solve problems using equipment and materials safely and identifying potential risks (ACSIS103)
- Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS104)
- 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 (ACSIS107)
- Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS221)
- Reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations (ACSIS108)
- Communicate ideas, explanations and processes using scientific representations in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS110)
