Science of Valid Investigations 1 - Caffeine Pop
Basically a take on the caffeine practical getting pupils to drink water, decaffeinated or caffeinated cola and then test reaction times online. You could alternatively use the ruler drop or compare with ruler for precision work.Students plan and then implement, then review and improve their plans. Great fun and there is a diamond 9 card sort activity to identify the key control variables. The drinking of water also helps to introduce control tests properly. Can be tailored to cover from L3 to L8 easily.You can also follow me on twitter @boostprogress
