A brief introduction into flight using experimentation with paper planes. Through investigation and inquiry, we look at what causes lift and steering in planes.
Fossil skeletons and trace evidence allow us to picture what life and creatures from the past may have looked like. Explore what is a fossil and specifically examine what is a trace fossil. Students will be making salt dough fossils.
Students will explore why the ocean water looks blue by learning about light – how it travels and how we see colours of objects. They will observe some experiments with water and light and will be challenged to explore light by completing their own experiments using the scientific inquiry process of prediction, observation and explanation.
Explore key Australian and world man-made landmarks to identify key features. Students will be challenged to ‘design and build their own man-made wonder’ using materials found around the house or online platforms such as Minecraft or Lego Digital Designer.
Explore how and where maps are used before being challenged to create a map of bedroom, backyard, neighbourhood, schoolyard etc. Students might like to use Minecraft to create a 3D model of space.
Join a STEM design challenge or science inquiry within the context of a picture storybook. Students will work through the engineering design process or scientific inquiry method relating to the chosen book.
