APP for Primary Science - Counting Caterpillars with Deborah Herridge

This programme from Teachers TV demonstrates a fun, low-cost and practical science investigation which will help cover the Assessing Pupil's Progress criteria for pattern-seeking and collecting and representing data at Key Stages One and Two.

CPD trainer Deborah Herridge shows a group of primary science teachers a simple technique for recording woollen caterpillars which will transform a tally chart into a pictogram and cover some of the criteria for varying the representation of data. This exercise also introduces students to the importance of camouflage to animals.
