Can you work with an adult to group some of the objects in your kitchen? Sort them into piles or draw pictures of them on these cards
Look at these pictures. Which items do you think use energy? Which ones make energy? How do you know this? What sort of energy is made? Do they all make/use the same type of energy? Cut them out and sort them into groups.
In this investigation you are going to see if water can move – or does it just change?
Look at these different word cards. Can you sort them into types of plant and into functions? Now shuffle the cards and see if you can match the different plants with possible functions.
Look at the labels on the bottles and pills in your medicine cabinet with your mum or dad. Can you answer these questions about them?
Look at these pictures of houses. What are they are made from? What do you think it might be like to live in these houses in hot or cold weather? Let's investigate which materials would not be good to use to build a house.
Wind is moving air and we can use the energy in wind to do work. Look at these pictures to see how people have always used wind power to help them. How does the wind make these things work? Put the wind to work for you! Make your own pinwheel and watch it spin in the wind.
Look at these pictures. Can you identify what each item is? Which ones generate heat? Which ones don’t? Can you cut them out and sort them into two groups?
Pushing and pulling FORCES make things speed up or slow down or change direction or shape. A change in speed, direction or shape always has a CAUSE. Sort the following pictures into forces caused by pushes and forces called by pulls. Then think of your own examples of pushes and pulls as you do things throughout the day.
Evaporation is the process by which a liquid such as water turns into a gas. In this simple experiment you will investigate how this process takes place.
Look at these pictures of the stages of a frog’s life cycle. Can you arrange them into a cycle diagram? Can you read the statements and match them to each stage?
Play a game with all the different trees in your garden or a park. First, walk around the garden with an adult. What is the same about the trees and what is different? Now try to complete these challenges.
Can you remember what transparent means? What about opaque? Use a torch to investigate different materials you can find around your house. Which ones allow light to pass through them (transparent)? Which ones block light (opaque)?
Look at these pictures of different musical instruments. Which part is vibrating to make the sounds we hear – is it the skin, strings, metal, wood or air inside the instrument? Record which you think it is below each picture.
Look at this diagram of a skeleton. Can you name the different bones? How quickly can you label some of the key bones in the human body? Now see if you can colour code them.
Think about the different joints in your body and how they work. We often refer to your body as having 3 main types of joint – hinge, universal and ball and socket. Have you learnt about these before? If not, why not research these joints to see how they work. Now see if you can identify these different joints needed for each of these actions to be carried out by the human body.
Can you identify the different parts of the human body? Use the table to draw a simple diagram of each body part and record a brief description of what it does.
Our planet is constantly affected by different forces and factors – many of which are caused by humans. We often hear about something called “the greenhouse effect”… but what is it? The greenhouse effect is when our planet heats up due to harmful gases collecting in our atmosphere. This simple investigation will show you how it happens!
When we eat food our bodies break it down so that we can live. Food is our fuel and gives our bodies the things we need. This process is called digestion. Can you read the statements below and cut them out? Try to arrange them in the correct order to show the process of digestion.
