The Primary Australian Literacy Mathematics & Science (PALMS) Program aims to enrich and support the teaching of earth science from Kindergarten to Year 5 across Australia. This will be achieved by providing, within the mandated Earth and Space Science curriculum, hands-on activities integrating aspects of Chemical Science, Physical Sciences and Biological Sciences as well as relevant components of English, Mathematics and other subjects into teaching packages that can be easily accessed by teachers of Kindergarten to Year 5. Packages of materials are to be supported with teacher training and hands-on incursions.
