KinetiKits supports A.C.A.R.A.

In the General Capabilities section of the Australian National Curriculum website, under “Critical and Creative thinking”, it states the following:

 

…students develop capability in critical and creative thinking as they learn to generate and evaluate knowledge, clarify concepts and ideas, seek possibilities, consider alternatives and solve problems. Critical and creative thinking involves students thinking broadly and deeply using skills, behaviours and dispositions such as reason, logic, resourcefulness, imagination and innovation in all learning areas at school and in their lives beyond school.

Thinking that is productive, purposeful and intentional is at the centre of effective learning. By applying a sequence of thinking skills, students develop an increasingly sophisticated understanding of the processes they can use whenever they encounter problems, unfamiliar information and new ideas. In addition, the progressive development of knowledge about thinking and the practice of using thinking strategies can increase students’ motivation for, and management of, their own learning. They become more confident and autonomous problem-solvers and thinkers.

 

All KinetiKits are designed and developed to support Australian Curriculum, Assessment and Reporting Authority outcomes.

Creating the projects in a classroom environment will open up infinite possibilities for learning conversations that cannot be predicted.  This will naturally happen as the students collaborate and discuss their methods and ideas.  The projects are designed to be child directed and the end result will not be the same. Each kit will have unique properties to it that the students will add.  This open ended element strengthens ownership and pride in the project.  In addition, there are numerous presentation opportunities. These kits are perfect for displaying at parent / teacher days, school science expositions, book week and other festivals in the year including Christmas.
