Curriculum Resources

Primary Connections has a suite of units across Foundation to Year 6 that fully align to all strands of the Australian Curriculum: Science. Each curriculum unit provides practical advice on implementing our inquiry-based teaching and learning approach to develop one Science Understanding. The units combine hands-on investigations, evidence-based reasoning and collaborative group work to build skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century.

Most of our units are available as a free download from Scootle (more Primary Connections titles to be added to Scootle soon!).

When you click ‘View unit’ (below) you will see more detail about the specific unit and its available resources.

Primary Connections: Linking Science with literacy is supported by the Australian Government Department of Education and Training through the National Innovation and Science Agenda measure Inspiring all Australians in Digital Literacy and STEM.
