    In this online PD session recorded on 27 August 2015, secondary teacher Steve Chrystall talks about the Science Learning Hub’s light and sight resources and how he used them to teach year 9 and 10 students.

    Primary teacher Miel MacLean then describes how she adapted the same resources for her year 5 and 6 students.

    Thank you! Great to see how others have used resources in classroom.

    This PLD session was based on the legacy Science Learning Hub however all the resources are still available on the new-look Science Learning Hub site.

    Activity idea

    Miel used a planning template to create the unit plan that was featured in this PD session. Go to the Planning template for teaching science for the two-part science planning template that has been designed to help teachers move from simply planning activities for students to do, to planning what and how students will learn through a coherent series of tasks.
