♦ Editable learning intentions and success criteria

♦ Editable PowerPoint Presentation

✩ At 5-6 pages each the planners features five to six steps for each lesson, keeping it simple and succinct. Teachers need to use their own skill to ensure the lesson remains explicit and teaching opportunities are not missed.


✩ These units also includes grading guides that shows what each grade (A-E) would look like based on two activities from each unit. This documents are also linked to the Achievement Standard for Year 1 and 2 HASS.


✩ This Science unit also contains an editable PowerPoint presentation that can be displayed during each lesson. It includes the learning intentions/success criteria, key discussion points, worksheets and display resources. This makes teaching every lesson even easier if your classroom has a T.V or Smartboard.


THIS PACK CONTAINS RESOURCES THAT ARE ALSO SOLD SEPARATELY. If another resource says it is included in a year 4 or 5 Science then there is a good chance it will also be in this bundle (but not guaranteed).
