Are you looking for some STEAM ideas for this year’s British Science Week on the topic of time? February’s issue, called ‘Time Quest’, is full of great ideas.
The lesson pack for year 3 is on the maths objective of estimating time. Pupils will create their own sand timers which measure an exact amount of time, for example, one minute.
Pupils will use their timers to test their time perception. For example, can they talk non-stop for a minute? Or stand like a statue? As we all know, depending on what you are doing, time can feel like it’s passing more quickly or slowly!
The magazine also has a perpetual calendar to craft, instructions to make a leapfrog game and a shadow clock.
