Geography- Rivers unit
In science this term we are looking at how water is constantly on the move as part of the water cycle. Follow the steps below to consolidate your understanding about this important scientific and geographical process!
1) Watch the video, read the information and complete the short tasks on this website: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zkgg87h/articles/z3wpp39
2) Fill in the sheet below and then write a paragraph describing the water cycle. Make sure you include the key scientific vocabulary.
Machine learning, or AI (artificial intelligence), can help us solve lots of the world's problems. One of these problems that links in with our topic is plastic pollution of the ocean. In this coding challenge, you must code an AI machine to tell the difference between fish and trash found in the sea. If you are successful, it will be able to clean up the waters all by itself!
