ASTA, in partnership with Education Services Australia, as part of the DEEWR funded program Supporting the Australian Curriculum Online(SACOL) has prepared 15 Units of Work for students in F-10 based on topics in the Australian Curriculum. These units have been written by experienced teachers, using resources which are available freely online. Each Unit consists of an overview, five lesson plans, and a list of additional links and resources. Extension activities for Gifted and Talented students will be added soon for the Units in years 7-10. 

The units are now live on the ScienceWeb website. They can be accessed freely through the ASTA portal, and will soon also be available through jurisdictional portals and via Scootle.

ASTA will be hosting a series of webinars presented by the writers of each Unit from August-November 2013. Recordings of these webinars will be retained on the ASTA site, together with discussion forums and the opportunity for teachers to contribute additional resources and suggestions on each topic.
