This subject will examine the humanities and social sciences and science curricula through an inquiry-based learning approach. A major focus of the humanities and social sciences learning area is on the ways in which children investigate and develop knowledge of their families, local area and sustainability practices. A major focus of the science learning area is to develop scientific knowledge in relation to biological, chemical, earth and space, and physical sciences. Students will apply these through the development of inquiry activities for early years learning environments.
