Making the loudest buzzer for an Air Raid Siren
Science: Testing components in circuits. Hypothesising, planning, observing, changing variables, recording, drawing conclusions.

The children used their newly acquired learning about Day and Night. They used practical apparatus to demonstrate the concepts. They then gave group presentations explaining what they had found out.
Presenting the Findings
