Biological Sciences: Compare characteristics of living and non-living things and examine the differences between the life cycles of plants and animals (AC9S3U01) (Version 9)
Living things can be grouped on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things (ACSSU044) (Version 8.4)
Science Endeavour: · Examine how people use data to develop scientific explanations (AC9S3H01)
Consider how people use scientific explanations to meet a need or a solve a problem (AC9S3H02)
Inquiry Skills: ·
· Pose questions to explore observed patterns and relationships and make predictions based on observations (AC0S3101)
· Use provided scaffolds to plan and conduct investigations to answer questions or test predictions, including identifying the elements of fair tests, and considering the safe use of materials and equipment (AC9S3I02)
· Follow procedures to make and record observations, including making formal measurements using familiar scaled instruments and using digital tools as appropriate (AC9S3I03)
· Construct and use representations, including tables, simple column graphs and visual or physical models, to organize data and information, show simple relationships and identify patterns (AC9S3I04)
· Compare findings with those of others, consider if investigations were fair, identify questions for further investigation and draw conclusions (AC9SEI05)
Write and create texts to communicate findings and ideas for identified purposes and audiences, using scientific vocabulary and digital tools as appropriate (AC9S3I06)
