Doing Science Investigations: Student Guide - Science by Doing

This online resource helps develop skills for science investigations.

The resource is a general unit of work suitable for all years of high school that can be used to help students develop the skills necessary to complete their own open-ended science investigations.

These skills are directly related to the Science Inquiry Skills found in the Australian Curriculum: Science and supports the CSIRO CREativity in Science and Technology (CREST) program.

Planting the Seeds of Science

An online resource to get younger kids thinking about the differences between day and night.

This online resource is a downloadable PDF containing modules of work around the themes of the environment, astronomy, forensic science, cleanliness and solar energy and how they relate to the day–night cycle.

As an example, one part of this resource deals with how children relate and build on their experiences of daytime light and night-time dark (e.g., is the grass still green at night?).

Rock, paper, scissors - Science by Doing
