Resources for Teaching Science

This website features a number of resources:

Ideas for Teaching Science: Years P-8

These activities are grouped in order of increasing sophistication within major conceptual areas of science. They provide a bank of activities that can be readily clustered into learning sequences, and which discuss the science conceptual knowledge for each topic area and strategies for supporting student learning.

Science Concepts: Years 5-10

This grouping is somewhat similar to the Years P–8 material but is focused more strongly about science conceptual knowledge and is pitched at a higher level. The activities are arranged to illustrate major ideas in each topic area.

Video materials

These show lesson sequences in a number of science topics. They cover a variety of year levels and represent different strategies in teaching and learning. There are no specific exercises or notes attached to these, but they can provide models, and strategies, for teaching.
