This Cape Farewell video clip shows how plankton data is recorded and used as evidence in scientific research.
Activity H - Plankton data is based on a spreadsheet which students used to answer questions and look for patterns in data about plankton. The activity is designed to consolidate, practice and develop the students’ skills with spreadsheets rather than introduce them to the application.
Notes on the activities and their use, with the video clip in lessons, are given in the Teachers’ Guidance.
