Background Slideshow

Growing and Changing

LO: To identify and describe how humans grow and change

LO: To plan and perform a comparison test


  1. There is a lot of information in the powerpoint, so you can split this lesson up over two afternoons.
  2. The 'Growing and Changing mini book' happens in the middle of the powerpoint OR you could complete the matching card activity here.
  3. Towards the end of the powerpoint, there is an enquiry to investigate. Follow the questions/prompts in the powerpoint. You will need to find an older child (brother, sister, or cousin/ family friend that you could videochat/call), a stopwatch (on a phone/ipad/computer). The comparative test activity sheet will help you record.
  4. Is testing only 2 children going to give us reliable results? How could we improve our investigation?


There are extra activities:
