This Power Point explains what bioluminescence is and explores in particular how the firefly squid exhibits this strange phenomenon. Detailed information is given in a fifteen slide presentation. Pupils are asked questions about the information given and asked to make further investigations, including drawing diagrams to show where the photophore cells might be found on the squid or, more generally, about Japan itself.
This resource will promote discussion and further scientific exploration whilst testing comprehension skills. Included is a worksheet to aid independent research.
Suitable for ages 10+
