Primary Science Curriculum Activities with Sensors
Lesson idea. An ideas booklet by UK company Data Harvest which shows the scope for using sensors in primary science. Ideas include comparing bowls of porridge based on the story of Goldilocks and comparing the fabric transparency of curtains. Each activity has a teacher page with learning objectives as well as a student page which often asks them to reflect and apply what they have discovered. ICT-based worksheets include more instruction than other kinds of activity. The activities within this booklet can be adapted to work with all kinds of sensors and software. They were made for Easysense Q equipment and software, so you will find detail differences between this and what you have. The ideas however, are highly adaptable and ought to mesh well with UK curricula.
