Here is another brilliant cross-curricular resource from the team at Siemens.
This electrifying topic uses the context of rail travel to provide a range of learning activities, beginning with an historical setting where pupils are asked to imagine what different types of travel were like before looking at uses of electric motors.
Finally pupils are provided with the challenge of running a good rail service using mathematical understanding and logical thinking to develop and evaluate solutions.
Pupils should describe and understand key aspects of human geography, including the distribution of natural resources including energy, food, minerals and water.
- Electricity, energy and forces
- Identify common appliances that run on electricity
This resource pack comes complete with a Scheme of Work supported by relevant stimulus video and image input, together with a corresponding IWB ready supporting Lesson Plan PPT and Student Support Sheets.
