Science: A STEM approach — Year 5

Preview Book

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 Year 5 for ages 10—11.

 

Each book in this fantastic new 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
  •   self-assessment
  •   resource sheets, if required

 

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
