range of contexts. Numeracy Numeracy involves students

SCIENCE Lesson Plans Overview General Capabilities Literacy Literacy involves students in listening to, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating oral, print, visual and digital texts, and using and modifying language for different purposes in a range of contexts. Numeracy Numeracy involves students in recognising and understanding the role of mathematics in the world and having the dispositions and capacities to use mathematical knowledge and skills purposefully. Information and Communication Technology (ICT) capability This involves students in learning to make the most of the technologies available to them, adapting to new ways of doing things as technologies evolve and limiting the risks to themselves and others in a digital environment. Critical and Creative Thinking Critical and creative thinking are integral to activities that require students to think broadly and deeply using skills, behaviours and dispositions such as reason, logic, resourcefulness, imagination and innovation in all learning areas at school and in the lives beyond school. Personal and Social Capability This involves students in a range of practices including recognising and regulating emotions, developing empathy for and understanding of others, establishing positive relationships, making responsible decisions, working effectively in teams and handling challenging situations constructively. Ethical Behaviour Ethical behaviour involves students in building a strong personal and socially oriented ethical outlook that helps them to manage context, conflict and uncertainty, and to develop an awareness of the influence that their values and behaviour have on others. Intercultural Understanding This involves students in learning about and engaging with diverse cultures in ways that recognise commonalities and differences, create connections with others and cultivate mutual respect. Cross Curriculum Priorities Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander histories and cultures. The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander priority provides opportunities for all learners to deepen their knowledge of Australia by engaging with the worldâ€s oldest continuous living cultures. This knowledge and understanding will enrich their ability to participate positively in the ongoing development of Australia. Asia and Australiaâ€s engagement with Asia This will ensure that students learn about and recognise the diversity within and between the countries of the Asia region. They will develop knowledge and understanding of Asian societies, cultures, beliefs and environments, and the connections between the peoples of Asia, Australia, and the rest of the world. Asia literacy provides students with the skills to communicate and engage with the peoples of Asia so they can effectively live, work and learn in the region. Sustainability This develops the knowledge, skills, values and world views necessary for people to act in ways that contribute to more sustainable patterns of living. It enables individuals and communities to reflect on ways of interpreting and engaging with the world. Sustainability education is futures-oriented, focusing on protecting environments and creating a more ecologically and socially just world through informed action. Actions that support more sustainable patterns of living require consideration of environmental, social, cultural and economic systems and their interdependence. Science Understanding Biological Sciences: Year 3 Living things can be grouped on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things (ACSSU044) Year 4 Living things have life cycles (ACSSU072) Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive (ACSSU072) Year 5 Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment (ACSSU043) Year 6 The growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment (ACSSU094) Chemical Sciences: Year 3 A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046) Year 4 Natural and processed materials have a range of physical properties; These properties can influence their use (ACSSU074) Year5 Solids, liquids and gases have different observable properties and behave in different ways (ACSSU077) Year 6 Changes to materials can be reversible, such as melting, freezing, evaporating; or irreversible, such as burning and rusting (ACSSU095) Physical Sciences: Year 3 Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another (ACSSU049) Year 4 Forces can be exerted by one object on another through direct contact or from a distance (ACSSU076) Year 5 Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (ACSSU080) Year 6 Electrical circuits provide a means of transferring and transforming electricity (ACSSU097) Energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity (ACSSU219) Earth Sciences: Yea…
