Stage 3 – Out of this world

Out of this world is an exciting trip through our universe, taking students on a journey that is at times factual and often fanciful.

  • Guide your students on a magical trip through the solar system to learn about the planets and stars that have kept humans intrigued for thousands of years.
  • Revel in the huge numbers that Out of this world gives us to wrap our minds around, and teach students about the astronomical knowledge of the First Australians.
  • Students will conduct experiments and graph the results, read and discuss a variety of text types, and get active playing games that ignite an interest in space.
  • Your class will spend time learning about the ways that we communicate with others, including through social media and music.
  • Students will create their own aliens on paper, and in real life, and write detailed, exciting descriptions using a variety of sentence structures.
  • You’ll consider together: What is an alien anyway?

Jump on board, start the countdown. It’s time to join us in Out of this world!

This unit of work has been created by Kaelene Neville, Principal, Murringo Public School, in consultation with The Arts Unit, to support curriculum delivery in conjunction with the Schools Spectacular 2019.

Program scope and sequence

Duration: 4 weeks (approximately 20 hours)

In this unit of work, students will take part in integrated activities from across the English, mathematics, creative arts, science, technologies, HSIE and PDHPE syllabi. The activities can be used individually, but because they flow from one to the other, Out of this world is ideally taught as an entire unit.

The unit culminates by attending the Friday matinee performance of Schools Spectacular 2019. We recommend organising an excursion to see the show if possible. However, the unit can be taught without doing this and classes could watch the televised show when it becomes available.

Teaching materials

  • Worksheets included as attachments to this unit of work
  • YouTube videos and websites as referenced in the teaching and learning activities
