Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
The Bend It Stretch It 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.
Changes are happening all around us. We observe change as we watch trees lose their leaves, smell bread cooking, feel a footpath become slippery with the rain or watch the sun set slowly over the horizon. We cause changes to the shapes of things around us as we wring a towel out to dry, stretch a watchband to fit your wrist, bend a straw towards your mouth to drink or scrunch up a piece of paper before throwing it away.
The Bend it! Stretch it! unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. It provides opportunities for students to explore how we use twisting, stretching and bending to physically change the shape of everyday materials.
Through hands-on activities, students investigate the effect of heat on the ability to shape playdough.
Bend It Stretch It Unit is currently unavailable and is expected to be available again Term 1, 2018!
"I used this unit to teach the properties of materials to several classes of Year 1&2 students. They loved it! The resources were easily available and the activities low prep and doabl in an hour. It was easily adaptable to Year 2 and created opportunities to extend all students. Highly recommend it."
