Knowledge slides

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.

Biology - Coordination
Chemistry - Atomic structure
Physics - Conservation of energy
Earth and Space - Plate tectonics
See slidesSee slidesSee slidesSee slides

Skills activities

Science skills are embedded throughout the resource. These are backmapped from what students will need for success in the senior years, including VCE. 

Reinforcing skills through topics

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

Biology - Coordination
Chemistry - Atomic structure
Physics - Conservation of energy
Earth and Space - Plate Tectonics

Question sets

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.

Practical investigations

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.

Law of conservation of mass

Science as a Human Endeavour

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.

Chemical reactions unleashed
