Here are some useful other resources about Swine Flu…..
1. Questions and Answers about Swine Flu
Here is a great website for KS4 resources
You can use a number of videos for Biology topic on Metabolism…..
A number of videos of Hummingbirds (taken on vacation in Arizona) are available at
You can easily EMBED these videos in your presentations.
Some key facts about Hummingbirds:
Hummingbirds feed on the nectar of plants and are important pollinators, especially of deep-throated, tubular flowers. Like bees, they are able to assess the amount of sugar in the nectar they eat; they reject flower types that produce nectar which is less than 12% sugar and prefer those whose sugar content is around 25%. Nectar is a poor source of nutrients, so hummingbirds meet their needs for protein, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, etc. by preying on insects and spiders, especially when feeding young.
Hot Potatoes is a powerful resource for producing a range of interactive activities.
All you need to do is enter the data for your exercises (questions, answers, responses etc.), and press a button. The program will create the Web pages for you, if needed. They can then be uploaded them to one of our websites.
Alternatively, you can PRINT paper versions of your exercises. The choice is yours.
You can include your own images, or images from our Image Galleriers, such as www.webucate.org . This will eliminate any problems with copyright issues.
Hot Potatoes is free for use by state educational institutions which are non-profit making, on the condition that the material produced using the program is freely available to anyone via the WWW.

Students in Year 10 focus on a real environmental and energy issue.
Using a model turbine, they measure the output voltage as a function of distance (related to wind speed) from the wind source. The wind source is provided by a hair dryer…

Interactive revision/consolidation activities are available for Biology and Physics at
Here is the full set of G and T Projects for all the courses in Year 10 and Year 11. giftedscience.zip
Awards/Prizes will be provided for all the identified students who complete these assignments.
The bonus for us is that we can use the presentations as part of the teaching resources….and even ask the students to present their findings to the science classes.
