Science Understanding eTAP Lesson
Biological sciences
Classification helps organise the diverse group of organisms
Organization and Function
Interactions between organisms, including the effects of human activities can be represented by food chains and food webs
The Food Web and the Physical Environment
Chemical sciences
Mixtures, including solutions, contain a combination of pure substances that can be separated using a range of techniques
Elements and the Periodic Table
Earth and space sciences
Predictable phenomena on Earth, including seasons and eclipses, are caused by the relative positions of the sun, Earth and the moon
What Causes the Seasons
Some of Earth’s resources are renewable, including water that cycles through the environment, but others are non-renewable
Water Cycle

Natural Energy and Material Resources
Physical sciences
Change to an object’s motion is caused by unbalanced forces, including Earth’s gravitational attraction, acting on the object
Gravity and the Solar System
Science as a Human Endeavour eTAP Lesson
Nature and development of science
Scientific knowledge has changed peoples’ understanding of the world and is refined as new evidence becomes available
Science knowledge can develop through collaboration across the disciplines of science and the contributions of people from a range of cultures
Collaborate to Evaluate Presentations
Use and influence of science
Solutions to contemporary issues that are found using science and technology, may impact on other areas of society and may involve ethical considerations
Resources in the Ecosystem
People use science understanding and skills in their occupations and these have influenced the development of practices in areas of human activity
Science Inquiry Skills eTAP Lesson
Questioning and predicting
Identify questions and problems that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on scientific knowledge
The Scientific Method
Planning and conducting
Collaboratively and individually plan and conduct a range of investigation types, including fieldwork and experiments, ensuring safety and ethical guidelines are followed
Information Collection
Measure and control variables, select equipment appropriate to the task and collect data with accuracy
Tools and Technology
Processing and analysing data and information
Construct and use a range of representations, including graphs, keys and models to represent and analyse patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate
Graphing Data
Summarise data, from students’ own investigations and secondary sources, and use scientific understanding to identify relationships and draw conclusions based on evidence
Drawing Conclusions
Reflect on scientific investigations including evaluating the quality of the data collected, and identifying improvements
Finding Answers to Questions
Use scientific knowledge and findings from investigations to evaluate claims based on evidence
How to Draw and Present Conclusions
Communicate ideas, findings and evidence based solutions to problems using scientific language, and representations, using digital technologies as appropriate
