Assignment 2 – Here we go!

Like my fellow colleague Maria, I have also decided to focus my unit plan for Assignment 2 on Science, however, with Year 5 students. The topic will be Animal Adaptations. Students will explore the structural features and adaptations of various animals and develop understanding as to how these features and adaptations help animals to survive in their environment.

I have selected the below content descriptors from Year 5 Science within the Australian Curriculum.

Constructing Knowledge:

Science Understanding

Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment (ACSSU043)

Transforming Knowledge:

Science Inquiry Skills

Communicate ideas, explanations and processes in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (ACSIS093)
