Progression across the primary years

There are many aspects to consider in relation to progression in using science resources as children progress through the primary years, for example:

  • range of resources:
  • moving from non-standard to standard measures:
  • increasing demand for accuracy:
  • complexity of resources:
  • application of ideas such as repeat readings, reliability, validity:
  • knowledge and understanding concepts related to the use of the resources:
  • openness of the task / support given:
  • scientific language used:
  • familiar or unfamiliar context.
