Science and Physical Education: Unit 1: Living Things In this unit you will learn: 1. The differences between living and non-living things. 2. How to classify living things into groups. 3. Inspiring images View our archive of stunning photography, courtesy of 2020VISION, the biggest photography-based conservation project ever undertaken in the UK. www.2020v.org Redstarts are immediately identifiable by their bright orange-red tails, which they often quiver. Redstarts ‘bob’ in a very robin-like manner, but spend little time at ground level. Puffins’ short wings are adapted for swimming with a flying technique under water. In the air, they beat their wings rapidly (up to 400 times per minute) in swift flight, often flying low over the ocean’s surface.

Food Chain - Kid's Corner The Food Chain Every living thing needs energy in order to live. Everytime animals do something (run, jump) they use energy to do so. Animals get energy from the food they eat, and all living things get energy from food. Plants use sunlight, water and nutrients to get energy (in a process called photosynthesis). Energy is necessary for living beings to grow. Animals www.kidcyberteachers.com.au Need help planning classroom activities?

Emperor Penguins keep warm in an ever-shifting huddle Snow chicks venture onto the ice and into the huddle In these two clips from the BBC's Snow Chick: A Penguin's Tale, emperor penguin chicks venture from their parents' pouches into their communities. Kate Winslet dramatizes their transitions with her narration. Science and survival on Continent 7: Antarctica At -100 degrees F, you'll survive for less than 3 minutes and burn 5,000 calories a day, and boiling water can turn to snow instantly.
