Stage Two teaching resources

The Stage Two (Years 3 and 4) resources provide opportunities to incorporate sun safety content and outcomes across the Stage Two 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.

Student activities include exploring the impact of UV on the skin through the analysis of skin damage as seen through a UV camera, and investigating common myths while being informed on the many contributing demographic factors which make the likelihood of skin damage higher for various skin types and behaviours.

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.
