This ILA is aligned with the Australian Science Curriculum as follows:Science Understanding• Living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive (ACSSU073)Science as a Human Endeavour• Science involves making predictions and describing patterns and relationships (ACSHE061)• Science knowledge helps people to understand the effect of their actions (ACSHE062)Science Inquiry Skills• With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and predict what might happen based on prior knowledge (ACSIS064)• Suggest ways to plan and conduct investigations to find answers to questions (ACSIS065)• Safely use appropriate materials, tools or equipment to make and record observations, using formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS066)• Represent and communicate ideas and findings in a variety of ways such as diagrams, physical representations and simple reports (ACSIS071)
