Primary Connections offers a suite of units across Foundation to Year 6 that fully align to all strands of the Australian Curriculum: Science. Each curriculum unit provides examples about implementing Primary Connections guided-inquiry teaching and learning approach. When units are brought to life by teachers, students engage in hands-on activities, opportunities for representation using multiple modalities, collaboration, reflection, self and peer assessment. Learning activities embedded in units are rich and offer great scope for teachers to learn from students, with students and about student learning of science.
