The Aboriginal Education Program DIY Kits are a fully self-contained classroom science resource for teachers. It provides all the equipment and information needed to run engaging and relevant hands-on science lessons in the comfort of your own classroom.
Each kit is packed full of all the equipment and teaching resources needed to run up to 8 weeks’ worth of themed lessons, experiments and investigations.
Each lesson is designed to support teachers in the delivery of the Physical Sciences Science Understanding of the Western Australian Science Curriculum. Students also have plenty of opportunities to design and plan their own investigations, which will allow them to improve Science Inquiry Skills, and to explore Science as a Human Endeavour.
You will also be given access to the electronic copies of the teacher resource books, worksheets and investigation planners. They are free for you to keep on your own device even after your kit hire has finished.
With the AEP Physical Sciences Kit, students can:
- Explore temperature using different types of thermometers.
- Investigate forces with water bottle rockets and toy cars.
- Explore the properties of light, and how it helps us to see.
- Make and measure electricity.
