CREST Superstar challenges

The 46 activities in this pack are a selection from the Crest Superstar Challenges. They are great to use in a science club, for science week or even with whole classes as part of the curriculum. They each contain a story to introduce a science topic topic and provide a context for investigation. Children can then discuss their ideas and decide how to try and answer the challenges that have been set. There are lots of opportunities for children to work scientifically as they set up enquiries to try and find their own answers to the questions that have been asked. Each challenge will take 45 minutes to an hour and involves hands-on investigation, decision making and group discussion.

There is also the opportunity for children to achieve a CREST Superstar Award by signing up and completing eight Star challenges.
