Worksheet 4: Option 1: Draw compound shapes before calculating their area and perimeter or complete the questions on the IWB which are trickier. Additional questions also
Science - Explore the impact of drugs
1) Before you begin, write down everything that you think you know about drugs. Not necessarily the names of different drugs, but their impact, why people take them and any associated vocabulary such as addictive, illegal, prescription etc.
2) Now create a list of the different drugs or medicines which you know
3) Look at your list and split them into legal and illegal drugs. This may now be easier to add more drugs to your list.
4) Visit the website https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zrffr82/articles/zg982nb
5) Watch the videos and play the games
6) Create a glossary of words linked to drugs before writing in your own words what do you think a drug is
