Circuit Construction Kit

This simulation allows students to build circuits with capacitors, inductors, resistors and AC or DC voltage sources, and investigate current and voltage.

Sample Learning Objectives include: *Build circuits from circuit diagrams. *Use an ammeter and voltmeter to take readings in circuits. *Discuss basic...

Changes in Species Over Time - Fossil Evidence

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recall that fossils provide evidence about organisms from long ago and their habitats.

  • Recall that fossils are between ten thousand and billions of years old.

    ...

Differences within Species

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Recognise what is meant by a ‘species’.

  • Recognise that there are differences between individuals within a species, and this is called variation.

  • ...

Seeing in Colour

  • Explain how adding coloured lights together affects brightness

  • Describe how...

The 'Passive Eye Model' of Vision

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Describe the pupil in an eye as a hole that light can go through

  • Explain how luminous objects can be seen when light from them enters the eye

  • ...

Characteristics of Light

These diagnostic questions and response activities (contained in the zip file) support students in being able to:

  • Identify the shadow made by an object

  • Describe how light travels in straight lines
