EUB210 Science in Primary Education 1

Unit synopsis

This unit will introduce you to science content knowledge and practices required to teach primary science from Foundation to Year 6. The content is relevant to the Knowledge and Understanding and Science Inquiry Skills strands from the Australian Curriculum: Science and includes big ideas from the biology, chemistry, physics, and earth and space science disciplines.  Adequate science disciplinary content knowledge has recently become a more focused requirement of Australian teachers working within educational systems. This unit will be built upon in EUB212 Science in Primary Education 2, where you will develop the knowledge and skills to plan, sequence, and assess inquiry-based student learning in primary science education using constructivism as a referent for your science teaching practice.
