"I love the resources, they're nicely linked to curriculum objectives and easy to pick up. Especially good for the
science-phobic amongst us as the ideas are all there."
Kay Wilkie, Year 6 teacher
Food chains: Coral reefs
In this lesson pack for year 4 and P5 linking to the topics Animals including humans and Biodiversity and interdependence, pupils will learn about the ocean’s tropical forest, the coral reef. In this pack pupils will discover the coral reef is in fact both living and dead. They will make their own edible polyp and learn the importance of the coral polyp in the reef ecosystem. This pack is suitable to teach whilst social distancing rules apply as equipment is not shared. All pupils would need their own edible items and a dinner knife, teaspoon and bowl.
This lesson pack includes:
A differentiated lesson plan with cross-curricular links
A PowerPoint presentation explaining coral reefs and food chains
Instructions to make an edible polyp
Extension information sheet - ten awesomely amazing coral reef residents
"My daughter received her first issue yesterday, and she loves it! I was impressed with the quality of the content, and the paper it's printed on. I took out the year subscription and folder on a whim and so glad I did! The extra touch was her name on the envelope."Ruth Louise
"It's full of interesting ideas and activities - and jokes! My grandson (now 7) has been reading it for a couple of years now: he loves it and keeps going back to each issue."Lesley Burt
"The subscription was a Christmas pressie for my 9 year old - we both love the magazine and doing the experiments together. Great bonding and great opportunity to do practical science experiments! Amazing!!"Cesca Voo
"My 10 year old son and his friend spent 30 minutes reading this together, and forgot - actually forgot! - that I had permitted some gaming time for them this afternoon! Literally the first time that has ever happened. Thank you! "Flora
"A brilliant magazine which fills a real gap in the market. It’s fun, intelligent and very “do-able” for a wide range of ages and abilities."Carolyn Stroud
