Integrated Science Technology Mathematics Skills& processes Children building “cubby houses” using sticks and branches. Forces related to which branches were strong enough to hold others Investigate materials, design, construct and evaluate cubby (fit for purpose, aesthetics) Measuring the branches and sticks to fit the space available. Choosing the best size. Problem-solving (analysing & creative thinking), estimation and approximation Weather watch Observing clouds, their shapes. Discussion on what causes rain & rainbows Children creating clouds, rainbows and rain as a room exhibit. Measuring rainfall Observation (of clouds), measurement, recognising scales―difference in size, shape Doctor & medicine (whole centre themed) Bone collections, skeletons, human body model, Adapting a wooden stick as a tool to lever sap out of a tree. Measuring bones and aligning them to a template. Measuring body parts. Establishing and justifying sorting criteria of a set of bones Balancing on a log―children placed items on a log, counting how many and how long they stayed on the log before falling off. Adaptation of a pair of wooden sticks to form pick-up tongs Children using beads to create a pattern Creativity, recognising patterns Learning about animals Finding small animals and their “homes” Constructing an environment to house them―small container adapted to the purpose Measuring the sizes of the container to fit the small animal Animal enclosure―Fit-for-purpose (normative knowledge). Describing key attributes of small animals.
