Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
It's electrifying has been discontinued in print and will be replaced by a revised unit titled Circuits and switches, expected release Term 1, 2016. This decision was made due to ongoing feedback, including difficulties with sourcing incandescent light globes, but also to fully align the new unit with the updated Science Understanding (Version 8 ACARA, 2015).
Some of the changes trialled included:
students no longer observe an incandescent light globe
a greater focus on identifying types of energy, their transfer and transformation in circuits
more exploration of different types of circuit scenarios and other electrical components e.g. buzzers
an improved model for explaining how a circuit works
a stronger design and technology focus.
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.
