This is a 21-page digital unit from the Australian Curriculum Science series that covers:

  • A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046) 
  • Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE050) 
  • Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions (ACSHE051) 
  • With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on their prior knowledge (ACSIS053) 
  • With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment (ACSIS054) 
  • Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately (ACSIS055) 
  • Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and identify patterns and trends (ACSIS057) 
  • Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings (ACSIS215) 
  • Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not (ACSIS058) 
  • Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations (ACSIS060) 


We live in an astonishingly complex world surrounded by natural and man-made wonders, from amazing life cycles and evolutionary adaptations of different species, to human inventions which have changed the way we live. With a smorgasbord of examples, Australian Curriculum Science is the must-have one-stop resource for teachers. Through hands-on and interactive activities, each resource in the series will captivate students and give them a thirst for scientific knowledge and understanding.
