Teaching and learning units

Introduction

This section provides a sample of the process used by each teacher as they developed their units or work. It uses extracts from journals and programs and other multimedia work samples.

You can download PDF versions of the units of work, and view and print FlashPaper versions. Follow the links below to access these units of work.

Aboriginal Art

This unit involves work with artefacts and the development of a snake mural onto which every student's feet have been painted. This unit focuses on the strands of Space and Geometry (two-dimensional and three-dimensional) and Measurement (length).

A Class Picnic

This unit has been developed around Nurragingy Reserve. A wide variety of opportunities were explored using an environment away from the classroom. The unit involves Measurement (length, area and time), Space and Geometry (position), Data, Number and Working Mathematically.

Four Operations in Everyday Life

This unit encouraged students to consider how they use the four operations every day. It culminated in the class catering for the Year 4 picnic at Nurragingy Reserve. The focus was on using money with the four operations.

Environmental Mathematics

This unit is linked to an HSIE unit on rainforests. The students and community worked together to plant a tree corridor and a bush tucker garden. The Mathematics involved Measurement (length, area, volume and capacity, mass and time), and Space and Geometry (position).
