A card resource where each card has a question on one end and an answer on the other. The cards should be printed out, laminated and cut up. The students then arrange the cards by matching up the answers to the questions which will then form a 'loop' or a rectangle. Works like dominoes.
An ideal activity for National Science and Engineering Week the wind power challenge asks students to design a wind powered machine that can lift a weighted cup off the floor. 'wind' power is provided using hairdryers. Research material, teacher&'s notes, video clips and even downloadable certificates are all freely available on the website.

This STEM challenge would be great for a science or STEM club, to use during NSEW, as the focus of collapsed curriculum timetable day , or to enhance a lesson on climate change.
Students initially look at some of the problems caused by climate change then design and make a model of their solution to a problem faced by farmers in Bangladesh... how to grow food even when the land floods.
Everything needed to deliver the activity is included, PowerPoint presentation, teacher's notes. students worksheets, even certificates and a poster you can request free.
Ideas for lessons activities together with supporting images, videos and web links suitable for a KS1 and 2 project on flooding. The videos contain powerful images of how the lives of some children in developing countries revolve around extreme weather conditions which can be caused by climate change.
