Content

This unit is offered as part of the Bachelor of Education (Primary) course. 

The purpose of the unit is to build upon the ideas from Primary Science Education 1 but cover further content and extend into new pedagogical and curriculum strategies. The focus would be on the planning of activity sequences to explore ideas in a more extended fashion: integration, higher order thinking and reasoning in science, planning extended investigations, design and creativity, e-learning, using community resources, the literacies of science, and formative and summative assessment. Integration with other content areas would be dealt with. The unit will incorporate extended experience working with small groups of primary school children, planning and implementing activity sequences.
