We see an object because light shines onto it and is reflected back into our eye. When it gets dark this evening, try this activity to prove the theory.
Time for an experiment! Let's find out how the distance of an object from a light source changes the shadow it makes.
Some of these things are living, some were once alive but are now dead and some have never been alive. Can you cut out the cards and group them in the circles?
Look at these jumbled-up food chain cards. Can you cut them out and order them correctly? Remember to draw arrows from one to the next (the arrow points from the animal being eaten to the animal eating it).
Have you heard about Darwin's theories on evolution? Have a look on the internet or in your local library. Can you find any examples of species evolving over time? Record your research.
A micro-habitat is a small habitat within a larger one (for example: a tree within a forest). Today, you are going to create your own!
Autumn is a great time for collecting! Why not go on an autumn treasure hunt and make a scrapbook with all the things you discover.
There are five groups of vertebrates. Which of the following vertebrates belong to each group?
Go out to your garden, local park or nearby woodland. Collect as many examples of flowering plants and non-flowering plants that you can find. Then choose one plant of each kind and draw a diagram of it. Can you find the seeds in both plants? Can you find out what your chosen plants are called?
Can you cut out each of the following pictures and say which class of invertebrates they belong to?
Do you know the difference between animals, plants, micro-organisms? See if you can you put all these in the correct group.
Try this experiment to see if light can go around corners!
You will see lots of butterflies around in the summer. Flowers are in bloom and butterflies get their food by flying from flower to flower, sticking their long tongues out to suck the nectar (a sugary liquid) up. Can you spot any butterflies in your garden or to a nearby park. Look in the bushes. Did you see any of these butterflies?
This line graph shows how much baby Jack weighed throughout his first year. Can you answer the following questions?
For this investigation you will need to ask a parent or adult if you can borrow some glass bottles (milk bottles are ideal). Remember to be careful when handling glass and ask an adult to help you clean the bottles first.
When the roads are slippery in winter we spread grit and then salt on them. But is salt the most effective solid we could use? Conduct this simple experiment to investigate!
Whenever you or any member of your family or friends do some exercise, carry out a survey to find out how they felt. Use the table to record your findings. Look at the results of your table. What do you notice?
Put a large white sheet under a tree or a bush and give the tree a good shake. Lots of little bugs living in your tree/bush should fall onto the sheet for you to look at carefully under a magnifying glass. Can you draw some of the bugs you can see? Can you identify any of them?
Some materials are more suitable for particular jobs than others. Look at these pictures and decide which of the materials could be used for each job. Which ones would not be suitable at all?
Look at this list of different foods and drinks. Which ones do you think will harm your teeth? Which ones do you think are less harmful and may even help your teeth? Colour in the tooth-friendly foods green and the ones that might harm your teeth red.
