In pairs explore these two texts.
Students collect all of the facts that they can about frogs- they should colour code the facts according to the text that they get the information from.
Which text gave you better/ more information?
What was different about reading the first text compared to the second?

Today we begin working on our science project. Our challenge is – Can you design a bike or football helmet to withstand impact and reduce the likelihood of a brain injury?
Students will be using their knowledge of forces acting on an object in a crash or fall, and apply a design process to develop a safe container for an egg that is dropped from a set height.
The design must:
- Stay on the head.
- Keep the skull from cracking.
- Allow for the user to see through an opening at the front.
- The helmet will be made from recycled materials.
- work in teams
- solve design problems
- make modifications, change ideas and maybe make
- use peer feedback to improve their designs using a design process like engineers and designers experiment, test, refine and try again
Throughout this process students will develop a folio of work that demonstrates their learning.
The two videos we looked at to help us understand why this is such an important issue were:
(Two points to note:
- Even if helmets are worn, they don’t completely eliminate the risk. They could give the player a false sense of security and they could put their body on the line even more.
- This is why it is important to follow MPPS’ no tackling rule)
