Monday 18/10/21 – Science

Learning Goal: I can conduct a science experiment.

Last week we looked at the word STEAM. Which we now know stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths.

This week we are going to look at the four main areas of science. They are Biology, Physics, Chemistry and Earth and Space Sciences.

First, today’s activities develop your understanding of the human body. This is a branch of science called Biology.

In the experiments below, you can explore how we taste different flavours, a key fault with our eyes and what blood is made of.

Next, choose one of the activities below:

Test Your Taste Buds

Sweet, sour, salty bitter. How do we know what is what?


Test Your Taste Buds

Find Your Blind Spot 

Did you know the structure of the eye has a built in fault.

Find Your Blind Spot


Make Tasty Blood.

Do you know what blood is made  of?

Make Tasty Blood


Then, if you are interested, and have time, you might like to do the other investigations.

Finally, don’t forget to record any notes, results, images or understandings onto your OneNote.

  1. are the instructions correct on find your blind spot? it says to start close and move away shouldn’t it be the opeset?

    1. Hi Eli, the instructions do say start close and move away. That is how I did the experiment, but as a good scientist maybe you want to test both methods.
