Super Science - For Groups With Special Needs

Rate this resource

The activities in this pack have been designed for use with children who have difficulty following instructions given purely in text and may have difficulties remembering a series of verbal instructions. The activities cover a mixture of topics including: magnets, forces, light, states of matter and sound. Using symbols and photographs to support learning, they are designed for use in class or within a science week or club to promote investigative work. Activities include: changing the pitch on an instrument, investigating planes and the water cycle. The activities and investigations have been adapted from existing STEM enrichment resources provided by the British Science Association for its National Science & Engineering Week and Crest Star Investigator award programmes. Widgit Software have translated existing activities from National Science & Engineering Week and CREST Star Investigator activity packs to symbol-supported activity sheets.
