This Powerpoint guides pupils through all of the crucial aspects of producing their own investigation in Science, in a fun way. Pupils need to understand how the different parts of an investigation are put together and this step by step guide acts as an introduction and a good recap opportunity.
It focusses on the variables, writing detailed methods, producing accurate results tables, drawing graphs and spotting patterns and writing conclusions. Pupils carry out their investigation as the lessons proceed and are constantly able to assess how they are doing.
At the end, pupils are able to carry out another investigation and put into place all the knowledge they have gained.
This resource is perfect for the introduction of pupils to investigations but also can run side by side with older pupils when they are carrying out formal assessments.
