The Backward design unit planner template uses the 5E’s model, Engage; Explore; Explain; Elaborate; and Evaluate; as does primary connections.  I thought these were great resources to reference for our unit planning if planning for Science.

As explained by David The curriculum areas of Geography, History and Science provide a knowledge/understanding strand along with a skills strand where as learning areas like mathematics and English do not make this quite as clear and can often depend upon the learning intention.

Constructing Knowledge and Transforming knowledge using the Australian curriculum is becoming more familiar and will continue to do so once on professional experience placement.
