British Science Week 2018 - Powerpoint/Assembly

British Science Week 2018 - Powerpoint/Assembly

This is a powerpoint I have created to use in assembly during 2018 Science week based on exploration and discovery. This powerpoint can be edited and extra slides added to share your schools activities for the week, but saves time preparing why science is important and some cool discoveries made in 2017.

Understanding Food Chains

Understanding Food Chains

Students use examples from the ocean to draw food chains showing the relationships between organisms. They then apply their learning to finding food chains around them. They use their food chains to suggest the outcomes when one of the animals is removed from the chain. They will group living things on the basis of observable features and can be distinguished from non-living things. Students will represent and communicate ideas and findings in a variety of ways such as diagrams, physical representations and simple reports. They will understand that living things, including plants and animals, depend on each other and the environment to survive. Students will be able to research the diets of a range of living things, create a simple food chain based on their research and communicate their finding to the peers.
