OZBOX: Learning Through Literacy is a comprehensive and engaging program for Years 3–6 that provides full coverage of the Australian Curriculum for Science, and Humanities and Social Sciences, specifically History and Geography.

OZBOX contains highly visual, informative and detailed topic cards, giving students the opportunity to read, comprehend and engage with content aligned explicitly to the Australian Curriculum. There are four different topic cards for each Australian Curriculum content description. The cards  are written at different reading levels – below, on and above – to allow for differentiated instruction.

  • provide opportunities for students to practise comprehension skills and strategies
  • provide opportunities for students to demonstrate research and writing skills
  • are suitable for shared, guided and independent reading and writing
  • include QR codes that link to real-life videos, allowing for deeper learning and engagement with the subject content.

Each student topic card has corresponding teacher support notes, available online via Oxford Owl. These notes provide educators with comprehensive teaching and assessment support, including:

  • Explicit links to specific Australian Curriculum Science, History and Geography content descriptions
  • Background topic information to save educator’s time and facilitate broader classroom discussion
  • Identifying comprehension behaviours linked to topic card questions and teaching activities
  • Additional teaching activities that enable students to develop, use and demonstrate their knowledge of Australian Curriculum subject content
