Assessment & Recording: (What are we assessing? How are we assessing? How are we recording?)
What are we assessing?
- Children’s ability to identify 2 sea animals during mat session or activities.
- Children’s identification of 1 feature of a sea animal.
How are we assessing?
- Using anecdotal notes and questioning during group session e.g. educator will move between each group and ask individual students to identify 2 sea
animals of their choice and a feature.
How are we recording?
- Basic Checklist e.g. Can identify/Can’t identify (for both objectives).

Highlight one or two outcomes specifically connected to your objective/s.

- Outcome 2: Connected with and contribute to the world around them. Broadens a child’s understanding in relation to their world through exploration.
- Outcome 4: Children resource their own learning by connecting with people, place, technologies and natural and processed materials.
