With assistance, help students to learn about science and the processes of investigating scientifically appropriate to their schooling stage.

These learning tools will help you:

  • refine your understanding of the curriculum demands of science understanding and inquiry skills for the year you teach

  • select some learning activities that will support investigative processes.

MyScience participants who are in Phase 2, Preparation, will find these learning tools useful as they provides advice for brainstorming/mind mapping a theme to generate topics.

Where to next?

The level 2 ‘Knowing and Thinking’ learning tools give you the opportunity to explore in greater depth the nature and practice of science and develop deep knowledge of science in your students. They will give you background understanding that will help you teach about ‘Science as a Human Endeavour’ and the metalanguage to further develop student ‘Science Inquiry Skills’.
