Guided Inquiry is the overall term used at Tootgarook for the study of Technology, Science, Health and Social Studies. The program used currently at Tootgarook Primary School is ‘Mappen’


The program aims to deepen understandings of these areas, using a conceptual framework, in the form of a Two Year Scope and Sequence: Identity, Change, Discovery, Connections and Community, Sustainability, Social Justice and Creativity in authentic, high impact ways. Please see for overview of each unit explored.



As a school, we aim to integrate these concepts and Units into other areas of the curriculum, where relevant. Students also have time during these sessions for personal inquiry that is guided by their own curiosity and questions about their world and experiences.
