Worksheet Overview

As you'll hopefully have worked out by now, your EdPlace team are right here, helping you to nail your key science skills. 


Science is all around us, part of everything we are and everything we do. We are naturally inquisitive beings, so investigations are actually part of everyday life and also the core of science. 

Learning how to accurately plan, carry out, conclude and then report on an investigation is important.





The key is, to make sure your experiments are fun, not something that's tedious or boring.


So, journey along with your EdPlace chums, putting your learning into practice, and see what a difference it makes in your learning!




Now, Mrs. Bates has taken a bit of a risk with her science class. They wanted to find out how stretchy the spring in their school biros are. They can 'click' their biros hundreds of times, and they just seem to work without breaking.




"Mrs. Bates, can we get the spring out of the biro and test it to see how far it can stretch without breaking?" Katie wants to know. 

Now their teacher can see springs and weights flying all over the room if they don't plan this right!
