Natural Science subject curriculum (NAT1-03)

Competence aims after Year Level 7

The budding researcher

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • formulate natural science questions about something one wonders about, provide possible explanations, create a plan and carry out examinations and investigations
  • converse about why it is important to make and test hypotheses in natural science through systematic observations and experiments, and why it is important to compare results
  • use digital aids to register, prepare and publish data from experimental work and fieldwork
  • extract and process natural science information from texts from different media and create a presentation
  • read and understand hazard labels on everyday products

Diversity in nature

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • plan and execute investigations in at least one nature zone, register one’s own observations and systemise the results
  • examine and describe flowering plants and explain the functions of the different parts of a plant using text and illustrations
  • examine and discuss some of the factors that influence the germination and growth of plants
  • describe the characteristics of some plants, mushrooms and animal species and put them in systematic order
  • tell others about how some plants, mushrooms and animal species are used according to tradition, including Sami traditions, and discuss whether this use is sustainable

Body and health

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • talk about the development of the human body from conception to adulthood
  • explain what happens during puberty and talk about gender identities and variation in sexual orientation
  • describe the main features of the circulatory system and what functions it has within the body
  • explain how the body protects itself against illness and how one can prevent and treat infectious diseases
  • collect information and statistics and discuss dangers to one's health that can result from substance abuse

Phenomena and substances

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • use animation and other kinds of models to describe planetary and moon movements and explain how the reasons for the earth’s seasons and the phases of the moon
  • describe how some minerals and rock types were formed and examine some of these types from nearby surroundings
  • elaborate on the use of some sources of energy, past and present, and gather information and statistics from different sources to describe the possible local and global consequences for the natural environment when using such energy
  • explain the concept of climate, be familiar with some causes of climate change and investigate and record the consequences of extreme weather
  • investigate phenomena related to sound, hearing and noise, discuss these observations and explain how sound can damage hearing
  • carry out experiments with magnetism and electricity and explain and present results
  • describe central characteristics of gases, liquids, solids and phase transitions using the particle model
  • explain the structure of substances and how substances may be transformed, by using the concepts of atoms and molecules
  • carry out experiments with different chemical reactions and describe what characterises them

Technology and design

The aims of the training are to enable the apprentice to
  • plan, build and test mechanical toys and explain the principles of mechanical transfer
  • plan, build and test simple products that use electrical energy and explain and promote the qualities of the finished product
  • describe the lifecycle of a product and discuss whether the product is developed in accordance with sustainable development
