Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
We live in a world that is constantly changing. Even things that we might consider immovable such as mountains or rock formations are gradually changing, sometimes with processes that are visible in our lifetimes. The modifications might affect us either through catastrophic events such as landslides or through gradual processes that change the quality and composition of soils we rely upon for sustenance.
The Beneath our feet unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. It provides opportunities for students to explore how natural processes and human activity shape their surroundings. Students’ understanding of soils, rocks and landscapes and how they change over time is developed through hands-on activities and student-planned investigations. Students also investigate factors that affect the erosion of soils.
A digital version of this unit is available free for educational, non-commercial use by Australian educators through the NDLRN/Scootle or your local jurisdictional portal.
