Science Picture Books

The science picture books on this page are great for introducing and exploring some of the science concepts included in the Australian Curriculum.

For each picture book we have included the following free, printable resources:

  • a step-by-step lesson plan, including discussion questions, writing activities and suggestions for other activities related to the text;
  • 1-3 differentiated wordsearch puzzles, using vocabulary from the book;
  • a writing/drawing template which can be used for a variety of writing activities related to the text;

More science picture books are being added so check back regularly to see what’s available to help in your teaching.
