Changes all around addresses the AC Science Understanding ACSSU019 Observable changes occur in the sky and landscape, in the context of exploring changes that come about because of construction, weather, and human interaction.

Changes all around provides students with hands-on opportunities to:

  • explore the natural, constructed and managed changes that they see in the sky and landscape around them
  • use observations to make claims about what changes can tell us
  • use scientific vocabulary to discuss how changes are managed

Students apply their new learning by:

  • planning and conducting an investigation of a change to the landscape that is caused, and then managed, by humans

Linking science with literacy

In the Primary Connections approach, students are supported to create representations that draw on and strengthen their literacy development. In Changes all around, students represent and explain their understanding about how observable changes occur in the sky and landscape, by creating these representations:

  • Factual text
  • Drawing
  • Data table
  • Annotated drawing
  • Science chat board
  • Word wall
