- Activities to help students explore and answer the inquiry question (waterproof, strength and comfort ideas) with matching black line masters
The inquiry question “What is it made of?” will provide a wonderful basis for your science lessons. The assessment task at the end of the unit requires your little learners to design a shelter for a pet. This will provide an opportunity for your little learners to display their understanding of the key scientific concepts explored within the unit!
While I design my resources with Australian Curriculum in mind, I include alternative US spelling too.
