Australian curriculum content descriptions

(ACSSU043) Living things have structural features and adaptations that help them to survive in their environment

(ACSHE083) Scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions are used to solve problems that directly affect peoples’ lives

(ACSIS086) With guidance, plan appropriate investigation methods to answer questions or solve problems

(ACSSU094) The growth and survival of living things are affected by the physical conditions of their environment
