Subject Overview:

Science topics covered in this subject will demonstrate effective and motivating ways to incorporate the big ideas of science into the primary classroom program. Comprehensive unpacking of the science and technology ideas in topics will be explored and investigated in a practical manner that provides sound pedagogical approaches, resources and strategies for innovative primary teachers. Sources of teaching materials, equipment and resources appropriate to the primary school level are incorporated. A collaborative project will be undertaken that demonstrates aspects of both science and technology in the modern world and students relationships to it.
