Museum Learning Resources and the Australian Science Curriculum

Biodiscovery booklet

Over recent years, teachers-in-residence at the Queensland Museum have developed many learning resources for teachers and students. The latest support materials have been developed to help with the implementation of the new Australian Science Curriculum.

A list of these resources is provided in the PDF document below.

QM Resources & Aust Science Curriculum_Nov 2011

Adaptations booklet

 

It includes QM online material as well as relevant QM loans kits. For each resource the targeted years levels are listed and relevant content descriptors provided, together with their elaborations.

Summaries of QM online resources that complement QM Loans kits can be found on the catalogue page of QM Loans. These resources have been grouped into the categories of:

  • Biodiversity
  • Geosciences
  • Cultures and Histories
  • Science and Technology

These summary documents should help teachers locate educational support material. They should assist teachers of science with implementing the Australian Curriculum in schools and complement the development of new curriculum materials from Education Queensland.

Since working at the museum, I have been involved in developing online learning resources, QM Loans kits, updating our Inquiry Centre Fact Sheets, delivering professional development for teachers, and writing educational resources that support the new Australian Science Curriculum.
