Year 1 Science Resources

Science Resources

Our Year 1 Science Resources are just what you need if you want stress-free Science activities integrated with STEM. 

The year 1 Science curriculum is jam-packed with learning a range of everyday science concepts.

From light and sound, creatures, plants and habitats, day and night, seasons, and environmental changes, to how materials and be physically changed…

There are so many Science Understandings to cover, you’re going to be busy! And at the same time, students need activities that will help them to develop a wide range of science enquiry skills including:

  • Questioning and predicting
  • Planning & Conducting Investigations
  • Processing and analysing data
  • Evaluating
  • Communicating Results

so you could say teaching Year 1 science is no mean feat!

STEM Learning

In addition to all this most schools require an integrated approach to science that incorporates the opportunity to apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematical understanding… or STEM!

If all this sounds like good old-fashioned integration, then you’re right!

Educators have been integrating learning areas since… forever, so STEM is nothing new.

In fact, if you don’t integrate subjects in today’s crowded curriculum you’ll never get through it all by the end of the year!

What is new is the emphasis made by Governments to prioritise the development of STEM skills for students. This is an attempt to make sure students are fully equipped with the skills for the workforce, including:

  • problem-solving
  • creativity
  • critical analysis
  • teamwork
  • independent thinking
  • initiative
  • communication
  • digital literacy

So taking a STEM approach to teaching science is more important than ever!

But before you break into a panic over extra workload, STEM isn’t something to be taught as a separate subject! YAY. It’s a set of skills that can easily be integrated into the science learning area!

With this in mind, we’re creating a range of  Year 1 Science Resources that not only support the learning of scientific concepts but also include STEM-based projects. 

Below you’ll find a set of STEM projects that will allow students to apply the science they have learnt to solve a specific problem.
