"Use your God-given gifts to serve others." 1 Peter 4: 10


This is our last week of "Feel the Force".

This week in English we are looking at the features of Science investigations and writing up our own Pod Racer investigation!


Look at this picture. Can you match the key words with the different sections? Think about the job each section does, for example Title - tells the reader what the text is about.


When you have completed your Science investigation (click on the Topic star or click here you are going to write about it.


You need to include:

- Title

What are your trying to find out? Does my pod racer move differently on different surfaces? Does friction affect how my pod racer moves?

- Hypothesis

What do you think will happen? I predict that... because...


- Equipment list

List the things you need. Seperate them with commas.


- Method

What did you do?

Use your time connectives: First, then, next, after that, finally.

You could also use fronted adverbials, like "When you have finished..."     "After putting the material on the ramp..."  "When the car has stopped moving...". 

Try to use the coordinating and subordinating conjunctions we have been learning.

and     but      so       because       although       while

Make sure you write what you did in the correct order! 


- Results

Draw your results in a grid or a table, like this


- Conclusion

What did you find out? Was your hypothesis correct?

My hypothesis was correct/incorrect. I predicted that ..... but.....

You could make it into a poster, like the bubblegum investigation. Or you could make it into a booklet, with a different section on each page.
