Here’s a nice comic book resource. Selenia is a school girl from another planet. Her adventures can be used to teach about Science Investigations and Materials.
There are 7 comics on the site which can be viewed full-screen to make them good for use on an IWB. There are also games such as word searches and quizzes. Throughout the comics are questions posed by the characters which would be useful as discussion starters.
The teachers section provides guidance on how to use the cartoons as a way of introducing practical science investigations such as dissolving and air resistance. PDF worksheets are available which are ready to use with your class.
Produced by The University of the West of England, these resources are suitable for KS3 Science (11 – 14 year olds)
