  • p5    Science – Living things This is the information provided in the Australian National Curriculum on ‘Living Things’  I’ve included this to help Lani prepare her lessons.In Year 5, students are introduced to cause and effect relationships that relate to form and function through an exploration of adaptations of living things. 
    Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment (ACSSU043)
    1. explaining how particular adaptations help survival such as nocturnal behaviour, silvery coloured leaves of dune plants
    2. describing and listing adaptations of living things suited for particular Australian environments
    3. exploring general adaptations for particular environments such as adaptations that aid water conservation in deserts.Our Christian World View sees all life emanating from a Good and Just God.  He is the creator of all things.  Through Jesus all things were made.John 1:3  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.Living things are everywhere on Earth.  Living things, whether they be a plant, creature or other life forms (bacteria, viruses, mollusks etc).  Every area of the Earth seems to be a home for some life form or forms.  These areas are said to be a ‘habitat’.  Life forms that have been in a habitat for a long time can be especially adapted, or equipped for surviving or even thriving in a particular habitat.  Some life forms invade, or are introduced, into a new habitat and take over- or make things harder for the other life forms to continue surviving.  For example, the Australian rock wallaby has only recently become extinct due to feral goats.

      Life forms which are not native to an area are called ‘exotic life forms’.

      Two main types of Life Forms we will be exploring are ‘Flora’ and ‘Fauna’

      Both of these words come from the Latin language, the language scientists used for many hundreds of years.

      Flora means plant life  (in all its forms)

      Fauna means animal life (in all its forms)

      Flora and Fauna can be divided into many different categories.  The study of small creatures, such as insects and arachnids is called ‘Entomology’ and the study of plants is called ‘Botany’.  The study of living things is called ‘Biology’ and the study of ‘Animals’ is called ‘Zoology’.
