Stage Five teaching resources
The Stage Five (Year 9 and 10) resources provide opportunities to incorporate sun safety content and outcomes across the Stage Five PDHPE and Science syllabuses through cross-curricular and project-based learning pedagogical approaches.
Using an investigation of safe practices relating to the sun and the skin, students will use critical thinking skills and research, evaluate, investigate, design and communicate to explore strategies that can be effectively implemented to make their world safer from UV radiation.
Students will have the opportunity to develop strategies to prevent skin cancer, examine student behaviours related to sun exposure, investigate how sunscreen works, analyse shade and UV in their playground or home, and develop informative social media campaigns relating to skin cancer prevention, amongst other activities.
Teachers can choose between pathways that enable either a student-centred design that allows discovery via a range of stimulus activities, or a teacher-directed module that encourages student collaboration. Teachers are encouraged to use appropriate resources to suit the end goal.
