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 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

A STEM Approach - Foundation

Science Understanding

  • Living things have basic needs, including food and water (ACSSU002)
  • Objects are made of materials that have observable properties (ACSSU003)
  • Daily and seasonal changes in our environment affect everyday life (ACSSU004)
  • The way objects move depends on a variety of factors, including their size and shape (ACSSU005)

Science as a Human Endeavour

  • Science involves observing, asking questions about, and describing changes in, objects and events (ACSHE013)

Science Inquiry Skills

  • Pose and respond to questions about familiar objects and events (ACSIS014)
  • Participate in guided investigations and make observations using the senses (ACSIS011)
  • Engage in discussions about observations and represent ideas (ACSIS233)
  • Share observations and ideas (ACSIS012)
