Through Learning in Context, practitioners can source information, resources, learning journeys and videos for nine learning contexts, including Food Security, Transport and Water.
To support and enhance the existing Water context section we have added three new learning journeys:
Changing States – Early Level
- learners explore the changing states of water as they investigate freezing, melting, boiling and evaporation.
Travelling on Water – First Level
- learners investigate floating, sinking and buoyancy and develop their understanding of the concept of density and Archemides’ Principle.
Uses of Water – Second Level
- through science challenges and investigations learners improve their knowledge and understanding of the different uses of water in Scotland and the world e.g. as source of power or use in recreation.
The new water learning journey format incorporates the Design Principles demonstrating their relevance to planning enjoyable, contextualised and challenging learning experiences and in identifying appropriate forms of assessment.
There are supporting resources for each new journey and links identified for additional learning and teaching opportunities.
