This lesson for KS3 science allows students to take on the role of a science journalist for the Daily Express and collect information on the events that take place in the film The Day the Earth Caught Fire (1961). This could be used as a single lesson or as a set spanning lots of different science skills and knowledge. It would work well for revision purposes, and each task can be made simpler/more complicated to suit the individual needs of each class.
