ARKive School Museum

Produced by ARKive, this series of activities teaches students about endangered species through the creation of an interactive museum. Children learn about endangered species through the ARKive School Museum presentation and then choose an endangered species to research. They then produce an exhibit by creatively...

ARKive on Tour

Produced by ARKive, these materials are designed to teach students aged 11-14 about the variety of habitats worldwide and the diversity of species found in each habitat. The activity also highlights topics including interdependence, adaptation and how species evolve...

ARKive's Adaptation: Design a Species Activity

This ARKive activity is designed to teach Key Stage Three students about the concept of adaptation. Using the marine environment as an example, students learn about how different animal species are adapted physically or behaviourally to survive in a particular type of habitat. Students research an allocated habitat...

ARKive's Adaptation: Design a Species Activity

This creative activity from ARKive is designed to teach Key Stage Two students about the concept of adaptation. Using the marine environment as an example, students learn about how different species are adapted physically or behaviourally to survive in a particular type of habitat. Students then design their own...

Boyle's law - GCSE and A level physics

A pair of videos that investigates the Boyle’s law relationship. The first demonstrates how to undertake the experiment using a pressure sensor and syringe.  The second explains how to interpret the data, plot the graph and determine if there is a relationship between the volume of a gas and the pressure.

Atmospheric pressure

This series of seven videos discusses several demonstrations of atmospheric pressure providing clear explanations for the observations. 

1. Introduction

2. Three experiments and a question

3. Mass, weight, force and pressure

4. Air density and pressure

5. Air pressure and...

Waves on water (frequency and wavelength)

A ripple tank is used in this video to calculate the speed of a water wave by measuring the frequency and wavelength. This is a GCSE Combined Science and Physics Required Practical.

Waves on water (distance and time)

A ripple tank is used in this video to calculate the speed of a water wave by measuring the distance and time. This is a GCSE Combined Science and Physics Required Practical.

Waves in a solid

The speed of a wave in a solid is investigated in this video. A signal generator and length of elastic are used to measure the frequency and wavelength of a wave, which allows wave speed to be calculated. 

Verifying the principle of moments

This video demonstrates a simple experiment to investigate the principle of moments.

Transformer output

The properties of a transformer are investigated in this video, specifically how the number of turns on the coils affects the output. 

Thermal insulation

A pair of videos that studies the thermal insulation properties of bubble wrap. This first video allows students to see an experiment that investigates how increasing the number of layers of bubble wrap around a beaker affects the cooling of hot water. The second explains how to interpret the data, plot the graph...

Terminal speed

The terminal velocities of cupcake cases are calculated in this video and a graph of mass versus terminal velocity is plotted to investigate the relationship. 

Temperature-time graph for ice

This video investigates the temperature–time relationship for melting ice. A graph to show the change of state is plotted.
