Explore this resource for more in-depth science information in the form of text, diagrams and animations.

The purpose of the Primary Connections Science Background Resource is to provide teachers with accurate and detailed information in the form of text, images and animation on a wide variety of topics in the discipline areas of biological sciences, chemical science, physical sciences, and Earth and space sciences. It is intended as a reference for teachers to support their science content understanding and provides a wide range of examples which illustrate specific concepts.

Each Primary Connections curriculum unit also includes Teacher Background Information specific for those resources; these are complementary to the Science Background Resource.
