Fake News: Critics say it changed the course of the American Election. Facebook says it is struggling to stop it. We're talking about fake news. And whether it's described as harmless fun or a serious problem, the one thing we can be sure of is that there is more of it around now than ever before. We take a look at what effect false headlines can have and how you can determine the truth. Mawson Anniversary: One hundred and five years ago, Douglas Mawson set off on an expedition that would write his name in the history books and earn him a knighthood in the process. But what happened on this trek that would ensure his story lived on for more than a century? We go digging through the history books to find out. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED: Learning Areas - Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Scientific knowledge is used to solve problems and inform personal and community decisions Years 5 & 6 Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Nature and development of science: Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions Years 5 & 6 HASS / Inquiry and skills / Questioning: Pose questions to investigate people, events, places and issues Year 4 Develop appropriate questions to guide an inquiry about people, events, developments, places, systems and challenges Years 5 & 6 HASS / Inquiry and skills / Researching: Sequence information about people's lives and events Year 4 Locate and collect relevant information and data from primary sources and secondary sources Years 5 & 6 History / Knowledge and Understanding: The contribution of individuals and groups to the development of Australian society since Federation Year 6 Two part BtN Special feature - International Disability Day Part 1 - Living in Silence: In the first part of our special Disability Day feature, we're going to give you an insight into what a normal school day is like for a kid who is deaf. You will meet Tanya, who will tell her own story using no sound at all. And in doing so, you'll learn that her world is both very different and very similar to that of other Aussie school kids. Part 2 - Living loud: In the second part of our special Disability Day feature, we'll introduce you to Cameron, who lives with a condition called Tourette's. It's a neurological disorder that causes sudden movements or noises that can't be controlled and it affects 1 in every 100 kids. Cameron tells us what it's like to have Tourette's and shares the things he'd like other kids to be aware of if they ever meet him. TEACHING RESOURCES INCLUDED: Learning Areas - Health and Physical Education / Personal, Social and Community Health / Communicating and interacting for health and wellbeing: Describe how respect, empathy and valuing diversity can positively influence relationships Years 3 & 4 Health and Physical Education / Personal, Social and Community Health / Contributing to healthy and active communities: Identify how valuing diversity positively influences the wellbeing of the community (ACPPS060) Years 5 & 6 English / Literacy / Creating texts: Plan, draft and publish imaginative, informative and persuasive print and multimodal texts, choosing text structures, language features, images and sound appropriate to purpose and audience Year 5 Plan, draft and publish imaginative, informative and persuasive texts, choosing and experimenting with text structures, language features, images and digital resources appropriate to purpose and audience Year 6 English / Literacy / Interacting with others: Use interaction skills when discussing and presenting ideas and information, selecting body language, voice qualities and other elements, (for example music and sound) to add interest and meaning Year 7 High School Transition: As the school year winds up, we know a big proportion of our audience will be contemplating the nerve-wracking move to high school next year. So what better way to put their minds at ease than to get some advice from kids that experienced the same thing just 12 months ago! Tune in to hear about all of the differences and similarities, best and worst parts of moving up in life.

TAX BALANCE The 2016 Australian budget has now been revealed and one of the biggest talking points is planned tax changes. Some people and companies are in line for tax cuts, while other companies will soon be getting taxed more. But if the countrys deficit is growing to 37 billion dollars next year, why arent everyones taxes going up? We take a closer look at relationship between taxes and the economy to find out. IVORY TRADE Authorities in Kenya have been fighting poachers and the illegal wildlife trade for decades. And last week, they took the dramatic step of burning more than 100 tonnes of seized elephant tusks. The aim was to send a message to the world. But some think they may have made a mistake. ** Ivory Trade will be next weeks BtN #AskaReporter topic! ** TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas: Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Science and technology contribute to finding solutions to a range of contemporary issues; these solutions may impact on other areas of society and involve ethical considerations (Year 7) Humanities and Social Sciences / Knowledge and Understanding / Geography: The importance of environments, including natural vegetation, to animals and people (Year 4) The main characteristics of the continents of Africa and South America and the location of their major countries in relation to Australia (Year 4) SHORT SIGHTED KIDS Over the past 50 years, short-sightedness, or myopia, has increased dramatically. Many researchers have blamed increased screen time for the growing problem. But now, some scientists think its actually our reluctance to go outside as often that is the real cause for concern. TEACHER RESOURCES INCLUDED Learning areas: Science / Science Understanding / Physical sciences: Light from a source forms shadows and can be absorbed, reflected and refracted (Year 5) Science / Science as a Human Endeavour / Use and influence of science: Scientific understandings, discoveries and inventions are used to solve problems that directly affect peoples lives (Years 5 & 6) Science / Science Inquiry Skills / Communicating: Communicate ideas, explanations and processes in a variety of ways, including multi-modal texts (Years 5 & 6) Communicate ideas, findings and solutions to problems using scientific language and representations using digital technologies as appropriate (Years 7 & 8) English / Literacy / Creating Texts: Plan, draft and publish imaginative, informative and persuasive print and multimodal texts, choosing text structures, language features, images and sound appropriate to purpose and audience (Years 5 & 6) REFUGEE CAMP Kids camps usually aim to be a fun experience. But one camp in Norway is anything but fun. It attempts to give attendees a 24 hour glimpse into life as a refugee. But despite being a tough and gruelling event, Norwegian kids have signed up in huge numbers. Find out why next week. KOALA TRACKER To better protect endangered species, scientists often have to do massive surveys to work out how many there are in the wild and where theyre living. But some animals can be pretty tough to track down, like koalas that spend most of their time in the treetops. So one group of Australian researchers has come up with a pretty interesting way to track them down koala tracking dogs.
