Christmas Science

(4)
A selection of Christmas themed Science lessons, including designing and testing hand warmers for Santa and turning pennies into gold. Most of these resources are my own, some ideas and resources have been borrowed from others.

Balanced Diet - Food tests on McDonald's

(1)
After teaching a lesson on the 7 food groups, students use food tests to conclude whether or not McDonald's provides a balanced diet. I buy a big Mac to test. Then watch a short clip on the Supersize documentary and analyse the symptoms of a high fat/high sugar diet; physical and mental. There is also opportunity to evaluate the food tests as methods of identifying nutritional content. I would recommend setting up the food tests as a circus of activities. I have two circuses on the go, so 8 stations. However, this would depend on your lab layout and your class.

Investigate - How can we find out if a claim is true

(0)
Encourages pupils to consider the reliability of information, and not to just take headlines as fact. Many young people 'share' stories on Facebook and Twitter, without considering the source of information and the reliability of the research. After discussion, pupils design their own investigation to test if a claim is true.

Students watch 3 short videos (links at the end of the document) answering the questions on the first sheet as they watch. Then, they can use their notes and what they have watched to complete the grids on the second sheet. The word search can be used as a settling starter. This is aimed at students who struggle with Scientific concepts and lack concentration during revision.
