Targeting students’ learning is at the centre of education. In addition, education is promoted as a solution for addressing various issues; consequently educators seek ways in which teachers can meet societal needs and students’ learning needs, and address the overcrowded curriculum. There are debates on the defi nition of curricula integration and its place in education. However, ationalising the value of primary students undertaking curricula-integrated learning can provide motivation for primary teachers to devise and implement curricula-integrated lessons in the classroom. The Applied Learning Experiences highlighted in this chapter provide practical ideas for curricula integration that focus on combining achievement standards from the Australian Curriculum.
