Maximise the learning opportunities for your students at this workshop by getting the best out of the Primary Connections resource books.

Primary Connections is a key resource to support primary teachers in linking science with literacy as well as providing teaching units supportive of the Australian Curriculum Science. This workshop provides participants with practical ways to maximise the teaching and learning opportunities provided in the Primary Connections books by gaining deeper knowledge and understanding of the 5 Eā€™s, cooperative learning and embedded assessment as well as linking the 'Explore' and 'Elaborate' phases with the Science Inquiry Skills strand.
