Before the lesson
- To design a weather station
Pupils should be taught to:
- Select, use and combine a variety of software (including internet services) on a range of digital devices to design and create a range of programs, systems and content that accomplish given goals, including collecting, analysing, evaluating and presenting data and information
- Use sequence, selection, and repetition in programs; work with variables and various forms of input and output
Pupils needing extra support: Should focus on measuring rain or temperature, as these are both things they could do easily in real life using objects that are widely available.
Pupils working at greater depth: Should be challenged to focus on measuring sunshine, thinking about the units it would be measured in and how often the device would record this.
