Words Along Wires Lesson Plan
Lessons use the context of long distance communications to get pupils thinking about how scientific ideas are used to develop solutions to challenges and how technology is about comparing and evaluating different solutions. Topics: circuits, electricity and energy, compare and give reasons for variations in how components function, including the brightness of bulbs, the loudness of buzzers and the on/off position of switches and use recognised symbols when representing a simple circuit in a diagram.
Electric Circuits Interactive
This activity allows pupils to investigate simple circuits by dragging circuit components into place to make a working circuit. The activities form an introduction to practical work exploring circuits. Pupils have the opportunity to experiment with switches to control components in order to find out that a circuit will not work if there is a break in it.
Different Habitats Video
A report about how different animals are adapted to live in different habitats. We learn about the adaptations of agama lizards, penguins, bats and camels.
