Week 3- commencing 20th April
Monday 20th April
Last term, in science, you learnt all about sound! To help refresh your memories, below is a Powerpoint which explains how sound travels from the sound source (the object making the sound) to our ears.
Once you have gone through the Powerpoint, we would like you to complete the sound survey attached below. You can either print out the worksheet or copy the table into your books. For the second part of the worksheet, where you have to draw or write about how the sounds you heard reached your ears, use the Powerpoint to help you if you are unsure.
Tuesday 21st April
Please complete the My Links with the World document below. Think carefully about what links you have with countries around the world; this could be anything from the country your favourite footballer is from to where the bananas in your fruit bowl were grown. You can either print off the worksheet or copy the table into your books.
Wednesday 22nd April
In science last term, you sorted living things into Venn and Carroll diagrams. You also learnt what a vertebrate and invertebrate is (a vertebrate is an animal which has a backbone, such as mammals; an invertebrate is an animal which doesn't have a backbone, such as a ladybird).
To help remind you how to sort living things into Venn diagrams and Carroll diagrams, there is a Powerpoint attached below.
Your task today is to complete the 'Sorting Vertebrates and Invertebrates' worksheet below where you have to sort the animals into the correct box of the Carroll diagram.
Once you have completed the Carroll diagram, you may want to challenge yourself by then having a go at the Venn diagram. For this challenge, you will need to think of your own criteria (headings) for each section of the Venn diagram.
Thursday 23rd April
Yesterday was World Earth Day, which is an annual event celebrated globally to show support for environmental protection. World Earth Day also raises awareness of endangered species (animals and plants that are in danger of becoming extinct).
Your task today is to research either an endangered or extinct animal of your choice. It is entirely up to you how you present the information that you found out; there is a document attached below which you may want to use to present your learning or you may want to present it in a completely different way, such as a poster or maybe even a Powerpoint presentation!
To help you with your research, think of the following:
- What is the animal's status (status means whether it is endangered or extinct)
- What the animal looks like (you could either write a description or draw a picture of it).
- Where in the world the animal is/was from.
- How many numbers are remaining in the wild if they are endangered. If your animal is extinct, the number in the wild will be 0.
- Its diet
- Factors which caused your chosen animal to become endangered or extinct.
These points are just starting points for your research. There may be other facts and information that you wish to find out about and include too.
Friday 24th April
Please complete the 'Where did it come from?' worksheet below. Think carefully about where different items from around your house came from. Some items will have a label on which tells you where it was made. You can either print off the worksheet or copy the table into your book.
