See how the Activity Packs can support/enhance the Primary Science Curriculum.
The Animation Activity Pack includes tutorials for pupils on how to use Powerpoint or Keynote to create animations that describe processes. The video above is a water cycle example but the same tools could be used to describe plants growing, how day turns to night or the movement of the Solar System. The tutorials for the I Can Animate App for iPad show how the iPad could be used to capture processes using either stop motion animation or time lapse. See a shadow moving (using time-lapse) example below but could also be used to capture seeds growing (stop motion) or chicks hatching (time-lapse).
The 3D Design Activity Pack could be adapted so that once pupils have worked through the activities they could use their skills to represent the Solar System using 3D shapes.(See example below).
The Virtual Reality Activity Pack could also be used to create virtual Solar Systems with labels (see below).
The third activity in the Data Handling Activity Pack and first activity in the Internet Research Activity Pack are mini-beast themed research and data tasks to learn about habitats, diet and key features.
The first few tasks of the Kodu Activity Pack could be adapted so that pupils could create the different habitats various animals live in.
The Game Creation Activity Pack includes an activity which teaches pupils how to make their own Candy Crush style game. Pupils could use different types of materials/objects as their items in their game.
If you have iPads, then pupils could record experiments with the iPad's camera and the use the various skills taught in the iMovie Activity Pack to add voiceovers, freeze-frame, slo-motion, split-screen etc.
