Natural Science subject curriculum (NAT1-03)

Competence aims after Year Level 4

The budding researcher

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • use natural science terms to describe and present one's own observations in various ways and recommend and converse about the possible explanations for what one has observed
  • use measuring instruments, systematised data, evaluate whether results seem reasonable or not, and present the data with or without using digital aids and tools
  • write reports and descriptions, revise the content of the report after feedback, evaluate the content of texts written by others and create simple digital composite texts
  • gather and process information about natural science themes from different sources and provide sources

Diversity in nature

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • talk about and compare the lifecycles of some plant and animal species
  • observe, register and describe the changes that occur in a tree or another perennial plants over time
  • describe the ways in which some extinct animal groups lived by gathering and systematising information from different sources
  • tell about animals from nearby surroundings, discuss animal welfare and distinguish between opinion and fact
  • investigate biologic decomposition and describe the cycle of nature
  • practice recycling and discuss why recycling is important
  • describe what can be done to care for nature in one’s own surroundings and argument for consideration when visiting nature

Body and health

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • describe in general terms the structure of the human body
  • describe the form and functions of the digestive system
  • describe the human skeleton and muscles and elaborate on how the body moves
  • explain why we vaccinate against certain illnesses, use information from brochures and digital texts to describe a common illness and how it can be prevented
  • observe and describe how the body reacts in different situations, talk about different emotional reactions and the relationship between physical and mental health

Phenomena and substances

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • create a digital composite text about some of the planets in our solar system by finding information about them and state sources
  • recognise and point out some stellar constellations, tell and talk about myths and sagas related to the night sky and the northern lights in Sami and Norwegian traditions
  • carry out experiments showing that substances and compounds may change their nature when subjected to various influences
  • explore phenomena related to air and sound, describe observations and provide some explanations
  • registrate and describe one’s own observations about the weather, measure temperature and rain and present the results in a graph

Technology and design

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • plan, build and test simple models of building constructions and document the process from idea to finished product using text and illustrations
  • describe constructions and discuss why some are more stable and can withstand greater loads than others
  • recognise and describe load-carrying structures in various buildings in one’s neighbourhood
