Science - Level 1Learning focusAs students work towards the achievement of Level 3 standards in Science, they use their senses to explore the world around them; for example, day and night, the seasons, and living and non-living things. They describe their activities and observations using both general and science-specific language; for example, hard, soft, long, short, big, small, strong and weak.Through sorting objects according to basic criteria such as size, shape, colour and weight, they identify and describe the similarities and differences between them. By participating in very simple investigations involving observation and measurement (for example, making and flying kites, saving water and measuring plant growth) they learn about basic procedures and processes, including collecting and recording data. They display, and make generalisations from their data. They become aware of using safe procedures in their activities.StandardsIn Science, standards for assessing and reporting on student achievement are introduced at Level 3. The learning focus statements for Levels 1 and 2 provide advice about learning experiences that will assist students to work towards the achievement of the standards at Level 3.
