This ‘Mechanical Posters’ unit gives children opportunities to develop their understanding of mechanical systems.
Following instructions how to make different types of lever and linkage mechanisms gives children experience and information to draw on when developing their own ideas. They sketch a design based on their ideas, make a prototype, and then create their ‘Lever and Linkage Poster’ using the context of recycling. Finally, children will evaluate their finished product.
Geography – All around the world
This ‘All around the World’ Unit allows children to take a closer look at where the countries of the world are located, and some of the ways geographers describe locations. Children will learn to locate and describe places using longitude and latitude, and find out about some of the important lines that delineate specific areas of the Earth – the Equator, the Hemispheres, the Poles and the Tropics. Finally, by looking more closely at the lines of longitude, children will also develop their understanding of time zones
