About This PDF
This Junior Science series aims to provide teachers with innovative lessons across a variety of topics studied in science at the junior secondary level. This resource focuses on Energy and Matter, and contains carefully graded worksheets suitable for students of all capabilities in Years 7-10.
As students work through these activities, they will interpret and analyse data including text, tables, graphs and diagrams; and organise and represent data in a variety of formats. They will also utilise basic scientific skills such as working with formulas, completing calculations, making generalisations and explaining what they have discovered. The activities incorporate a range of theoretical and practical scientific skills, and also involve the development of literacy skills.
