Year 5 Science
Let’s teach! Primary provides all you need for a complete program for Year 5 Science. Including full lesson plans, differentiation, digital lessons and downloadable resource sheets, this platform is designed for ease of use by every teacher, for every student.
To ensure teaching and learning needs are met, this digital tool is curriculum-aligned, with lessons written to the Australian Curriculum and mapped to both the Victorian and Western Australian Curriculums, as well as the NSW syllabus.
All lesson content is adapted from R.I.C. Publications’ range of science resources. Having been reviewed and developed by teachers, and with teacher feedback, this content is tried and trusted internationally, while incorporating new teaching and learning techniques to suit the modern classroom. See R.I.C.’s science range here.
LTP Year 5 Science online teaching plans help students learn how to infer simple cause-and-effect relationships from their observations and experiences. They will begin to link events and phenomena with observable effects and to ask questions. Through four units—Structure and Adaptation, Changing States, Beyond the Earth and Properties of Light—students will explore the properties of familiar objects and phenomena, identifying similarities and differences and developing a greater understanding of the world.
Each unit in Year 5 Science focuses on one or more key inquiry questions, including:
- Unit 1—Why do living things have different features?
- Unit 2—How do solids, liquids and gases differ?
- Unit 3—What are the different bodies in our solar system?
- Unit 4—How does light act?
The Year 5 Science worksheets provided are designed to help students explore these concepts in a more practical way to improve their understanding and develop their knowledge. These are able to be completed digitally, or printed and distributed, making them ideal for both classroom and remote learning.
