Four fantastic investigations for higher end thinking.

Four fantastic investigations for higher end thinking.

This was done on my trip to the Science Museum. We took four key shots and have come up with four investigations in relation to these photos. They start very easy and become rather tricky. These are brilliant for those students who really need to be pushed at the higher end!
