This is the Target Group Menu for a group of targets from the Science Framework for Planning
Group 18 Space & the Solar System
This way for group 19 - Energy Sources

What are Space, the Solar System and the Universe and what evidence is there for their existence.

Science - Interactive Guidelines Curriculum for Excellence - draft outcomes
CfE  (Planet Earth - Astronomy) (Level Second) - SCN 213E - I can use simple models to communicate my understanding of size, scale and relative motion in our solar system. I can observe or research a feature of space that I find fascinating and describe this to others.
CfE  (Planet Earth - Astronomy) (Level Third) - SCN 307E - I can use my knowledge of the basic needs of humans, and the bodies of our solar system, to put together a reasoned report on whether we can colonise space.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Second) - SCN 236BB - I can report and comment on a current scientific news item to develop my awareness of topical science.

CfE  (Planet Earth - Astronomy) (Level Fourth) - SCN 410E - From my research into a current space development, I can use information and data to show how new technology is used to make observations and measurements that increase our knowledge of the Earth and our Universe.
CfE  (Planet Earth - Astronomy) (Level Fourth) - SCN 411E - I can apply my knowledge of electromagnetic waves and their detection to explain how images and information from space help us understand the structure of the Universe and how it has changed over time.
