L1 Science - Astrobiology - Semester B

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs B. Aziz

Level 1 Science - Astrobiology - Semester B

Natural disasters happen all the time. Some are small, some are world-changing. Life has a way of coping. We will investigate how.

Curriculum Skills:

  • Participation and contributing: Students will be able to discuss the implications of asteroid strikes and other high impact events.
  • Relating to others: Understanding the psychological, physical and financial impact of earthquakes on others. Working as groups on project work, finding and utilising their strengths.
  • Using language, symbols and text: Reports can be constructed in a range of formats. Use of correct scientific terminology and units when discussing asteroids, genetics and evolution.
  • Managing self: Much of the work will be self directed and student choice and agency will form a large part of how this unit will run.
  • Thinking: This unit can be seen on multiple levels. We will be encouraging students to think beyond the physical aspects of earth science and look at the human and biological impacts of large scale events

In order to gain a Course Endorsement, students will have to have studied a Semester A Science course.
