Electricity

Try designing a new electronic aid for the vampire from the video

or make an electronic safety poster for vampires.

 

We will not be able to use bulbs, wires etc at the moment to make our own circuits, but have a go at making circuit diagrams using symbols instead of pictures.

Micro-organisms

Micro- organisms are tiny living things, too small for us to see without a microscope.

1.Read through the powerpoint above.

2.Make a list of helpful and harmful micro-organisms and why they are helpful or harmful.

3. Find out more about one particular micro-organism.

4. Try the mould investigation.

Try this floating garden challenge.

Farmers all over the world have problems with land that floods. 

Can you help farmers overcome those challenges?

Classification system of living things

Watch the video.

Draw some diagrams showing the characteristics of different species similar to the ones on the video.

e.g. What do fish have in common with each other?

Why are dolphins difficult to classify?

 

*********************************************************************************

After watching the video about Carl Linnaeus, explain the meanings of the terms on the worksheet.

Why did he order the classification system in the way in which he did?

Click on the link above to help you become an ornithologist  - an expert in identifying birds!

Spring is an important time for garden birds who will be nesting and perhaps looking after fledglings.

They will be busy searching for food and may need your help, just as much as in the winter. If you look at the rest of the Woodland Trust website it will give you lots of ideas about looking after wildlife.

 

As well as identifying the birds, try keeping a tally of how many birds you see during a day, or over a week. Create a bar chart showing your results.

Here are some experiments recommended by the Science Museum for home learning, with helpful videos. You may need an adult to supervise.
