What Are Forces? Unit Plan

Teach Starter Publishing
8 x lessons | Suitable for years: 2

This Science unit addresses the concept of forces.

It consists of 8 lessons of approximately 60 minutes duration.

The sequence of lessons and suggested time frames should be regarded as a guide only; teachers should pace lessons in accordance with the individual learning needs of their class.

An assessment task for monitoring student understanding of the unit objectives is included and will require an additional lesson.

Teachers are encouraged to collect samples of students’ work throughout the unit to add to a learning portfolio. These can also be used to assess students’ understanding of the unit objectives.

    Hi, I can see that one of the unit outcomes is ST1-9PW-ST, however this outcome cannot be found within any of the lessons. Only ST1-7PW-ST is mentioned. Is this an error?

      Hi Dominique, thanks for bringing this to our attention! Our teachers have reviewed the full unit and its lessons and have updated the content descriptors to be accurate. Hopefully this makes everything a bit clearer. :)
