This unit is designed to cover the year 4 Physical Sciences material for the Australian National Curriculum. This physics unit stands apart from many of the other units in the science curriculum (with the possible exception of Year 2 Physics) and includes many novel items like Newton’s laws of motion and magnetism. Students will learn this exciting new material through presentations, demonstrations and hands-on lab work. We also provide worksheets, and an assessment task to help you make sure that your students understand these important science concepts.
