Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
The Among the gum trees Unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. This product pairs perfectly with the supporting kit in the Related Products tab.
Primary Connections units focus on developing students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in both science and literacy. These units are an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom through hands-on activities and investigations.
Eucalyptus trees are an important feature of Australian life, with over 900 species found in almost every corner of the nation. Eucalypts have adapted to survive both drought and bushfire, and some rely on extreme heat or smoke to release and germinate seeds. They provide shelter to many native animals, and some species are the sole food source for koalas.
Through hands-on investigations, students explore the fruit and flowers of eucalypts, how different living things interact with the tree, and plan and conduct an investigation of how eucalyptus oil may inhibit the growth of plants beneath its canopy or microorganisms in its leaves.

Among the gum trees (Kit Consumables)
Starting at: $2.60
An interesting unit with great supporting resources.
Review by Lisa
"An interesting unit with a real ecology focus, which I'm looking forward to teaching. Great resources within the unit book, and well supported by the set of Information Texts that I purchased in conjunction with the unit, which we will use during Guided Reading. The only disappointing this was I was hoping to access the PDF version of the unit (as is stated on the front of the unit textbook, with the voucher code inside the front cover) however the new Primary Connections website has no area in which the voucher code is able to be used. It would have made copying of the resource sheets much easier."(Posted on 6/04/2018)
