Stage Three teaching resources
The Stage Three (Years 5 and 6) resources provide opportunities to incorporate sun safety content and outcomes across the Stage Three PDHPE and Science and Technology 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 explore the promotion of sun safety, investigate myths relating to sun protection, develop an understanding of how UV behaves and how it impacts the skin, explore the factors that influence skin cancer development, develop innovative shade designs, 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.
