  This week we are carrying on with our topic of ‘animals including humans’. Take a look at the pictures below, taken from an Explorify ‘zoom in, zoom out’ activity. Can you figure out what the item is that has been zoomed in on before you get to the last picture? How do you know? Were you correct?

  Have a look at the picture on the document below. This is a picture of a human skeleton. Around the edge, can you note down what you think the skeleton does and why we need one? Use your normal pencil to make these notes.

Once you have written down your initial ideas, have a watch of the video in the link below. This video is about a fish skeleton, does it give you any more ideas about why we might have a skeleton? Write down any more ideas you have on your skeleton picture. Use a coloured pencil to make these notes.

  Once you have written down your first ideas and your ideas after watching the video about a fish skeleton, have a look at the video on the link below. This video talks about the human skeleton. As you are watching the video, make a note of any more ideas about why we have a human skeleton and what it is for. Use a different coloured pencil for these notes. Were your initial ideas correct?
