A collection of resources from the SYCD Primary CD investigating physical processes. The major resources are: *Experience the moon - an activity for more able pupils enabling them to use independent research skills to produce a well-reasoned analysis of a travel poster for holidays on the Moon, in order to produce a travel brochure that is informative and scientifically correct. *Classroom tuned percussion - a set of activities that enable pupils to explore the properties of a range of materials and link them to their uses through investigating tuned percussion instruments. *Kites - an exploration of the variety of kite designs around the world, together with the scientific principles that keep kites aloft. A fun way of exploring some types of forces through making and flying kites. *Gravity and space traffic lights - a quick revision game on gravity and space. *Speed pairs - a game where pupils put together the start and end of a scientific statement. The activity reinforces pupils' knowledge of aspects of electricity, forces and motion, and light and sound.
