This online resource, Develop your questioning skills with the Bringing it to Life, was developed by SA Teaching and Learning Services (DECD). Science is one of the learning areas supported by these resources.

The BitL (Bringing it to Life) online tool demonstrates high-challenge pedagogy through a series of questions that support students as both thinkers and problem solvers.

The Conceptual Narrative is a series of audio stories which provides a detailed developmental sequence of science concepts from Foundation to Year 10 for different learning areas. The brief sound bites tell the story of the scientific overarching ideas and concepts, demonstrating how they interconnect and grow in complexity over time.
