Explore the features below that you’ll love, saving you time and getting your students engaged and learning.
Preview sample content from our new Victorian Curriculum-aligned Year 9 Science resource with the same features across Years 7-10.
You are fully covered, whether you are teaching about the Moon, mixtures or magnets. Every topic is covered in-depth, with skills and knowledge explicitly mapped for Years 7-10. Deep dive or a whistle-stop tour of a topic, you have content and activities that are ready-to-go.
High-quality editable and downloadable teacher slides for every single topic. There are Knowledge slides and Skills slides. These include learning intentions and success measures, guiding questions, theory, activities, and checking for understanding. Use as is, or add and remove the content you need for your students.
Each set of Skills slides focuses on a specific Science skill, helping to make sure your students are developing the skills they need while learning content.
Knowledge slides cover the topics that you know get students excited. Hooks and activities in each slide set will get students buzzing, with theory that connects topics to students’ lives.
Science skills are embedded throughout the resource. These are backmapped from what students will need for success in the senior years, including VCE.
Each set of Knowledge slides also includes a student activity to practise the skill learnt in the related Skills lesson. For example, when students learn about evidence for plate tectonics, they are also practising processing and analysing data - which is covered in-depth in the matching Skills lesson.
Each chapter contains a set of practical investigations to engage students in developing their science skills and knowledge in a hands-on way. Each practical investigation is also directly linked to a science inquiry skill to build students’ ability to engage with science both inside and outside the classroom. Each prac also has a risk assessment available with your Edrolo subscription through Risk Assess.
Each topic contains a set of practical investigations to engage students in developing their science skills and knowledge in a hands-on way. Each practical investigation is also directly linked to a science inquiry skill to build students’ ability to engage with science both inside and outside the classroom.
Each topic has a ‘Science as a Human Endeavour’ exercise where students interpret a variety of stimulus such as diagrams or maps. This helps students to develop their literacy and numeracy skills in a scientific context - building a foundation upon which they can engage more deeply in the sciences.
This lesson covers the critical skill of working with significant figures in a range of situations. Skills covered include:
How to identify the number of significant figures in a measured value
How to report significant figures for calculations involving multiplication or division
How to report significant figures for calculations involving addition or subtraction
This Year 9 topic (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCSSU122) builds students’ understanding of the parts of an atom. Students consider how the atomic model has been built up over time, and learn how to read the periodic table.
This Year 9 lesson (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCSSU131) builds students’ understanding of the features of a magnetic field and how to model them. This includes exploring Earth’s own magnetic field.
This Year 9 topic (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCSSU117) focusses on coordination in the context of how body systems provide the requirements for life.Students will ponder how we are able to take complex actions and explore the digestive, excretory, respiratory and circulatory systems.
This Year 9 topic (aligned to the Victorian Curriculum Content Standard VCSSU127) builds students’ understanding of what the theory of plate tectonics is, and the evidence that exists to support it.The hook slide asks students to consider how marsupials that originated in South America got to Australia, and in the skill sharpener, students practise processing and analysing data by constructing a timeline.
Edrolo has become the foundation of our Year 7 Science Program, with the complete package of student and teacher resources allowing us to deliver quality lessons. Having the choice of the online or text options as well as fun practical activities and differentiated chapter questions makes it a great program for engaging all our students.
Edrolo is a complete package for both teacher-led and self-directed learning. It saves an immense amount of teacher's time, planning and looking for resources.
Editable teacher slides for every topic, covering theory and science skills, plus activities, practical investigations, and accompanying risk assessments all ready-to-go. All made by experienced teachers. Online auto-marking, and real-time student data for formative and summative assessment.
The skills students need for success in VCE and beyond, and backwards mapped and integrated from Years 7-10. Skills are explicitly covered in the editable teacher slides, and there is an activity in every lesson for students to practice applying these science skills. All laying the foundations for ongoing success in Science.
Carefully designed and curated question sets with instant feedback to consolidate learning and support students to make progress. Activities that reinforce science skills in context and Science as a Human Endeavour questions to relate science to the real-world.
Skills activities and questions sets that scaffold student learning, with fully-worked solutions and checklists so students can make progress in class, at home or when you're busy helping other students.
More content and activities than you need for any lesson, so you’re fully covered. Plus extra support for beginning and out-of-field teachers. Use this checklist to make sure you’re getting the best Years 7-10 Victorian Curriculum-aligned Science resources.
Scientific concepts explained in plain language, with clear learning intentions and key words and definitions, so they are easy to understand, with activities to apply their knowledge.
Students won’t wonder why they’re learning Science, with real-world examples, explanations and questions that help them appreciate the role of Science in their lives.
Fully-worked written solutions for questions help students understand any errors and make progress, whether in class or at home.
The colours, fonts and graphics help students easily scan, read and focus on the content. Hands-on practicals, images and real-world examples make the content fun and engaging.
