BBC Science Simulations 1

BBC Science Simulations 1 provides an opportunity for children to explore seven "virtual" science investigations. The simulations include making plants grow, exercise, building electrical circuits and more. This program is perfect for whole class instruction using a whiteboard and provides an excellent opportunity for students to predict, carry out, and evaluate investigations with the additional benefit of being able to simply reset them and start again. The "questions" portion of the program provides ideas for simulations. Tables and graphs are generated from each experiment and give students practice in interpreting simple data. Contents: * Using electricity * Changing materials * Growing plants * Force and movement * Exercise and health * Food chains * Light and dark
