Investigations and Projects
These are science resources will encourage and enable students to get involved with practical science. A wide selection of materials is presented within each resource, allowing a teacher to tailor the activities for a specific group of students.
The resources in this section are:
*Coastline Protection: students investigate what will make the best mixture of materials for coastline protection. Role plays, pictures and age appropriate materials lead the students into the investigation with a multi-sensory approach.
*Microscale Chemistry: an alternative and ingenious approach to chemistry experiments. This uses clear plastic transparency sheets placed on top of the worksheets on which students will investigate the reactions.
*Fast Plants: ideas and resource sheets for investigating plants and flowers in the classroom.
*Science Passport: a useful template for activities bridging science topics between primary and secondary schools. The adapted version will be more suitable for some students, incorporating pictures, clearer language and a larger layout.
*Perfumes and Smelling: a different way to approach separating mixtures, including other ideas relating to senses and smelling.
*Citizenship and Farming: what does organic mean? Is organic food healthier? Activities include interactive material, drama and debate as part of this citizenship resource.
*Let's Investigate: an approach to investigations for students with specific, moderate or severe learning difficulties in a special school. The ideas used to help the individual students progress can be applied to any mainstream or special school situation.
