A guitar makes music when the strings vibrate. This simple experiment will help you make your own guitar and see how the length and tightness of the strings can affect the notes made.
The aim of this game is to make as many food chains as possible.
The aim of this activity is to design and make your own circuits game to help you revise the different circuit symbols.
It may be a wet day, but Teddy wants to go out and play! How can we keep Teddy dry in the rain? Let's choose materials to help make something waterproof for Teddy.
Look at these pictures of the different planets and the sun in our solar system. What information can you remember about each one? Do you know any interesting facts about each planet? If not, can you use books, talking to people or your online research skills to find out an interesting fact for each? Record your fact below each one.
Magnets come in all shapes and sizes; they also vary in strength. This experiment will test the magnetic force of a variety of different magnets.
How do you find your way around? Do you use maps? A satellite navigation system? Could you use a compass to direct you instead? A compass works using magnetism – the needle in the compass points towards the magnetic north. This helps us to find our way around. In this activity you are going to make your own simple compass!
Mix some paper clips up with some rice and put them in a closed, see-through plastic container. Using a magnet, how long does it take you to separate the paper clips from the rice without opening the container? Now set up a maze made of cardboard. Can you guide a magnetic ball or marble through the maze from the outside of box, using your magnet?
Find a glass jar. Put a selection of magnetic and non-magnetic materials inside. Close the jar and then, using your magnet, see if you can separate the magnetic materials without opening the jar.
In KS1 science children learn to differentiate between living and non-living things in terms of characteristics such as movement, growth and breathing. Identify which things are living and which are non-living, but watch out ... sometimes it's not as obvious as it seems!
Look at these statements about light and shadows. Can you sort them into those that are true and those that are false?
This game is designed to help you revise the key stages in different life cycles. The aim of the game is to collect all four stages in each life cycle.
How many labels can you fill in with names of body parts? Add some arrows to show where they are! Try and think about the more obscure parts of the body. Can you learn at least three new parts?
Look at this diagram of the eye. Do you recognise all the different parts? Use the labels below to finish off the diagram.
We’re going to be playing with our voice sounds and muffling them using a kitchen roll. Make different sounds into the tube (ring a bell, clap, whistle, rattle some keys). Blindfold the person who is listening and ask them to guess what sounds you are making.
In your kitchen look at what different cooking utensils are made from. Talk to an adult about the different materials. Do you know their names? Now look for or think of household objects that could be made with these materials. How many can you find?
When we add some solids to water (or other liquids), they dissolve. Try this simple experiment to see which household solids will dissolve and which won’t.
This activity is designed to help you learn that different places around your home will be different temperatures and also to help you to practise reading scales on a thermometer.
Arm yourself with some small containers (see-through if possible) and a magnifying glass and find out what bugs live in your garden. Lift up stones and logs, look in dark corners near sheds, dig around in the soil and find cobwebs on the window sill. See if you can catch some bugs in your containers and talk to an adult about what each bug looks like.
Think about all the ways our houses protect us. Now think about animals or bugs living in your garden or house. Where do animals and bugs like to live? Draw a picture and/or write the name of their home. Cut out all the cards and make two piles, one for creature cards and one for house cards; mix them up. Pick one card from each pile. Would a mouse like to live in a fish pond? Would a frog like to live in a bee hive? Why?
