Charles Darwin was fascinated by earthworms, spending many hours observing their behaviour and testing their senses and preferences. With the Love to Investigate Science Week pack you too can give your children the opportunity to recreate some of Darwin’s best-loved experiments.
Our Love to Investigate whole school Science Week pack is available, priced at only £45. These easy-to-use, complete investigations (one for each year group from year 1 to year 6) are based on the whole school topic, worms. No specialist equipment or resources are needed so they’re perfect for any last minute Science Week preparations.
Engaging warm-up tasks help children develop the skills they need for working independently on the main practical investigation. We've included a child-friendly, scientific method board into every project for the children to follow, as well as key vocabulary for them to learn, use and remember when working scientifically.
Love to Investigate is written and tested by Dr Fran Barnes, Cornerstones' expert in primary science. Fran is a molecular and cell biologist with a passion for hands-on, practical science in the classroom. She has taught practical science to all ages and delivered CPD for local authorities and the Yorkshire and Humber Science Learning Centres.
