Daily Science Challenge

Today you will be completing the Science Daily Challenge that you began yesterday:

Do you remember when we learnt about how the eye worked? Well different creatures' eyes work in different and fascinating ways. Which creature do you think can't see the colour red? Which animal's eyes are trained to detect movement, and therefore they don't always pick up on prey that is motionless?

Create a poster on j2e about how different animals see. You might like to include a section on how humans see. Here are some websites that you might find helpful:

This is taken from the film Avatar, and is based on a fictional world called Pandora.

Imagine you are an astronaut who has landed on Pandora. This week you will be writing about your first day exploring the world.

Today I would like you to design your own creature which you might find on the new planet.

You can draw your creature in your home learning book or on BGFL using JiT paint.

Use the questions below to help you design your creature:

• How many eyes does it have?

• How many legs does it have?

• How does it move? Does it walk, fly or swim?

• Where does it live?

• What does it eat?

Write 10 adjectives around your picture to describe your new creature.
