The Curious Case of the Missing Lunch

Oh no, our science presenters’ lunch has been taken and eaten!

You have reached the main content region of the page.

Oh no! Our science presenters’ lunch has been taken and eaten. There were four cuddly suspects in the room at the time. Who took the lunch- was it the polar bear, elephant, chameleon, or orangutan? Let’s be forensic scientists and find out! Students carry out simple experiments where they gather, record, analyse and discuss evidence.

Year 1-2

Science Inquiry skills

  • Questioning and predicting – Pose and respond to questions, and make predictions about familiar objects and events
  • Planning and conducting – Participate in guided investigations to explore and answer questions. Use informal measurements to collect and record observations, using digital technologies as appropriate
  • Processing and analysing data and information – Use a range of methods to sort information, including drawings and provided tables through discussion, compare observations with predictions
  • Evaluating – Compare observations with those of others
  • Communicating – Represent and communicate observations and ideas in a variety of ways

Year 3

Science Inquiry skills

  • Questioning and predicting – With guidance, identify questions in familiar contexts that can be investigated scientifically and make predictions based on prior knowledge
  • Planning and conducting – With guidance, plan and conduct scientific investigations to find answers to questions, considering the safe use of appropriate materials and equipment. Consider the elements of fair tests and use formal measurements and digital technologies as appropriate, to make and record observations accurately
  • Processing and analysing data and information – Use a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and to identify patterns and trends. Compare results with predictions, suggesting possible reasons for findings
  • Evaluating – Reflect on investigations, including whether a test was fair or not
  • Communicating – Represent and communicate observations, ideas and findings using formal and informal representations. Represent and communicate observations and ideas in a variety of ways
