Summary

This video demonstrates a fun, low-cost and practical science investigation which will help cover the APP criteria for pattern-seeking and data collection, for KS1 and KS2.

Scientist and CPD trainer Deborah Herridge shows a group of primary science teachers a simple technique for recording woollen caterpillars which will transform a tally chart into a pictogram and cover some of the criteria for varying the representation of data.

This exercise also introduces pupils to the importance of camouflage to animals.
