Over the previous 3 school years, students should have become quite familiar with living things. In this unit, we add to that understanding by contrasting living things with non-living things and once-living things. Students focus closely on the characteristics of these things so that they’re able to identify and sort them. During the course of these 8-9 lessons, students cover all the relevant components of the Science Understanding components for the Year 4 Australian National Curriculum for Biological Sciences.
