Science

Busy Things has a wide range of science resources to help your early years and primary children develop an informed and inquisitive mind! More...

 

Our early years science games will help develop your children’s observation skills and get them talking about their world and the plants and creatures that live in it.

 

Activities for older children include labelling and categorising objects, plants and animals to reinforce their knowledge and understanding of the world around them. They can use our templates, drawing tools and clipart to write about and illustrate their observations.

Busy Things world early years

Ages 3 to 5

 

Busy Things early years science activities will help you build on your children’s fascination with things that have life in them - things that grow, creep and crawl, swim and fly. More...

The collection of games, interactive worksheets, colouring and drawing projects will get them naming common flowers, fruit and vegetables, labelling the parts of plants and animals, learning about the life cycles of butterflies and frogs, understanding what plants need to grow, colouring images of flowers, insects and sea creatures … and having fun creating their own imaginary animals.

 

Busy Things world Key Stage 1

Ages 5 to 7

 

At this stage, your children will begin laying the foundations for a more detailed and systematic understanding of the natural world, and starting to make careful observations of their own. More...

Busy Things has lots of resources to help them do this: notably, interactive worksheets and project templates asking them to identify common plants, insects, birds, reptiles, amphibians and quadrupeds, to label the parts of plants and of the human body, to map life-cycles, to place animals in their habitats and say what they eat, to identify seasonal changes and climate zones and to create weather maps. There are also resources to get them to think about the properties of the materials from which common objects are made and - to give them a first taste of research – a graph- making tool for displaying the results of a population count.
