and Poster, ‘Why?’: Science – the body’.

All readers can access the Activity sheets, ‘Why?’: Science – the body’.

This month’s ‘Why?’: Science’ questions give children the opportunity to learn about how the human body works – compared to other animals – as well as how to keep it healthy (correct answers are shown in bold). A range of AT1 skills will be utilised in finding the answers: from planning a fair test to recording results in bar charts and line graphs.

As with past articles in this series, this month’s activities have a linked interactive resource (subscribers only) that features the same six questions combined with animated visuals and audio. There are also free activity sheets for all readers to support the activities.
