The curriculum resource modules are intended for teachers interested in integrated STEM teaching and learning approaches that engage students in collaborative learning to solve authentic, real world problems.
The development of school buildings and grounds may disrupt the natural environment and change the habitats in which many small animals and invertebrates live. Invertebrates play important roles within ecosystems; for example, they are part of a food chain, some aerate the soil or act as pollinators, while others decompose leaf litter and other decaying matter.
Noise is a problem that impacts all community members, including students. For students to understand the impact of noise in their community they investigate noises in their school and look at the importance of noise regulation in different places.
Birds protecting their young may swoop and attack people and other animals. They can pose a real threat as attacks are unpredictable and can result in injuries.
A STEM learning module should encourage learning that is student-led and teacher-facilitated, and have an open-ended problem-solving approach. Problem solving involves an intellectual struggle that provides opportunities for higher-order thinking, reasoning and creativity.
Online professional learning modules are available for teachers to encourage deeper exploration of the pedagogical principles that underpin the curriculum resource modules.
