Big idea: Earth in space
The idea of Earth in space is important because we live on the Earth and it is the only planet that we know to have abundant and complex life. Understanding how the Earth and space systems interact, how they affect us, and how we affect them is vital for our survival. Exploring our origins and our place in the universe feeds the intrinsic curiosity of humans and develops a sense of wonder.
Is there a recommended teaching order?
The Best Evidence Science Teaching resources can be used with your existing scheme of work, if desired.
However, we have used research evidence on learning pathways and effective sequencing of ideas to develop subject maps for biology, chemistry, earth science and physics.
