As a scientist

Plants:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zpxnyrd/articles/z2vdjxs 

Watch this video about the life cycle of a plant. Draw your own life cycle of a plant? If you have grown your own seeds at home, perhaps you could draw and label the parts of the plant and explain how they have changed since you planted them. 

Please complete a project about a habitat of your choice. If you have a brother or sister in school, you can complete one project together.  

You might like to choose: 

a cold land,  

the rainforest,  

under the sea 

an island 

British woodland 

Here are some ideas for some activities you might like to complete for your project: 

As an artist 

Create a 3D model/moving picture of your habitat. How can you create some moving parts? 

Search for a piece of artwork based around your chosen habitat. Write down your opinion of this piece of artwork. Could you recreate your own piece of artwork in the same style? 

As a designer

Design and make a shelter to protect yourself in your habitat.  Think carefully about the materials you need to select. (protection from the wind, waterproof, insulated) 

Think carefully about how to join the materials together.  

Evaluate your shelter. How could you improve it to make it even stronger? 

As a writer Write a postcard from your chosen habitat. What can you see and hear? 
As a scientist

What animals and plants would you find in this habitat? How have they adapted to thrive there?  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/z96r82p 

Watch this video about food chains. Draw and label a food chain for animals in your chosen habitat. 

As a geographer 

How is your chosen habitat different to our homes? What is the climate like in the habitat? Can you find examples of this habitat on a world map? Label any major rivers or mountain ranges that might appear on your world map.  

As a musician

Imagine the sounds you might hear in your habitat (swishing trees, howling wind, bubbles.) Can you recreate these sounds using body percussion? Perhaps you could put the sounds together into a performance. 

As a computer user

Use safe search to conduct your research about your habitat. 

Use 2sequence to create a musical score for your body percussion performance
