Primary Connections Unit - Aligned to the Australian Curriculum: Science
All living things have their own life story, but all species share in the same cycle of growth, change, reproduction and death. Understanding more about the life cycles of various species can help us in many ways. It might help us to protect and preserve endangered species, to manage and control unwanted species like insect pests, or to improve animal husbandry.
The Watch it grow! unit is an ideal way to link science with literacy in the classroom. It provides opportunities for students to explore the growth of a range of living things and explore the processes of growth and change, of reproduction and death that apply to all animals. Through hands-on activities and investigations, students compare the growth of living things under different conditions.
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.
