Cotton Activities for Primary School Students

Cotton Activities for Primary School Students

This set of six activities are all hands-on STEM-inspired projects that can be carried out at home or in the classroom. Projects target the three primary school stages and include a cotton hunt, design and make, scientific investigation and deconstructing a plant to study its features.

Australian Curriculum: Stage 1 focuses on representing data with objects and drawings in the first project and then investigating living things. Stage 2 focuses on biological sciences and distinguishing living from non-living things and life cycles. Stage 3 focuses on design and technology in the first activity and science inquiry skills in the science investigation project.
