Stage One teaching resources

The Stage One (Year 1 and 2) resources provide opportunities to incorporate sun safety content and outcomes across the Stage One PDHPE and Science and Technology syllabuses through cross-curricular and project-based learning pedagogical approaches.

A range of materials are provided for use with students with varying competencies. Some video links provide good visual stimulus however introduce content aimed primarily at older students and can be used with students or to assist teachers to develop their own understanding of sun safety.

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 can explore how light travels through the creation of a ‘Gummy bear wave’, examine how shade and shadows are created, examine myths relating to sun safety, design sun safe playgrounds and shelters, consider ways to protect themselves and others from UV radiation, and more.

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.
