Fact finders 7-9

The (fictional) show Fact Finders TV needs help from your STEM Club! The show explores common myths, crazy stories and possible pranks and is asking pupils to find out, ‘Is it really true?’ and ‘How could it work?’ Pupils will make their own models to test their ideas and draw conclusions so they can report back on...

Extreme Elements

Have you ever wondered about the earth’s wild and wonderful weather? Think you have what it takes to build an earthquake-proof house or survive in an extreme environment?

In this programme, pupils will make models to help them understand how weather and extreme events occur, and what their impact can be....

Animal adaptations

Looking at how animals have adapted to cope with all sorts of conditions. Exploring communication strategies, travel, camouflage and life in challenging settings, and the way humans can learn from animals.

Lesson 6 - Video evaluation

In this lesson, pupils will complete their video by removing unwanted content and reordering their clips. They will then export their finished video and evaluate the effectiveness of their edits. Finally, they will consider how they could share their video with others.

Learning objectives


Lesson 5 - Importing and editing video

In this lesson, pupils will film the remaining scenes of their video, and then import their content to video editing software. They will then explore key editing techniques and decide whether sections of their video can be edited or need to be shot again.

Learning objectives

  • To identify...

Lesson 4 - Planning a video

In this lesson, pupils will plan a video by creating a storyboard. Their storyboard will describe each scene, and will include a script, camera angles, and filming techniques. Pupils will use their storyboards to film the first scene of their videos.

Learning objectives

  • To create a...

Lesson 3 - Using a storyboard

In this lesson, pupils will use a storyboard to explore a variety of filming techniques, some of which they will use in their own video project later in the unit. They will evaluate the effectiveness of these techniques before offering feedback on others’ work.

Learning objectives

  • To...

Lesson 2 - Filming techniques

In this lesson, pupils will explore the capabilities of a digital device that can be used to record video. Once they are familiar with their device, pupils will experiment with different camera angles, considering how different camera angles can be used for different purposes.

Lesson 1 - What is video?

In this lesson, pupils will be introduced to video as a media format. They will see examples of videos featuring production and editing techniques that they will work towards using their own videos. Pupils will begin by explaining what the medium of video is before analysing and comparing examples of videos.


Lesson 6 - Answering my question

In this lesson, pupils will access and review the data that they have collected using a data logger. They will then use the data collected to answer the question that they selected in Lesson 5. Pupils will also reflect on the benefits of using a data logger.

Lesson 5 - Data for answers

In this lesson, pupils will think about questions that can be answered using collected data. Pupils will choose a question to focus on and then plan the data logging process that they need to complete. After they have completed their plan, they will set up the data loggers to check that their plan will work. This...

Lesson 4 - Analysing data

In this lesson, pupils will open an existing data file and use software to find out key information. The data file is a five-hour log of hot water cooling to room temperature. Later in the unit, pupils may choose to complete a warming experiment, starting with ice and allowing it to warm to room temperature.


Lesson 3 - Logging

In this lesson, pupils will explore how data loggers work. Pupils will try recording data at set moments in time and draw parallels with the data points that a data logger captures at regular intervals. Pupils will use data loggers independently from a computer, then they will connect the loggers to a computer and...

Lesson 2 - Data collection

This lesson will build on the idea of collecting data over time, and introduce pupils to the idea of collecting data automatically using computers. Computers can capture data from the physical world using input devices called ‘sensors’. Sensors can be connected to data loggers, which can collect data while not...

Lesson 1 - Answering questions

This lesson will provide pupils with an overview of the unit, building on and recapping learning about data from previous units. Pupils will consider what data can be collected and how it is collected. They will think about data being collected over time. Pupils will also think about questions that can and can’t be...
