Slippery slopes (for SEN)

Award Level Star

These CREST Star activities have been adapted for students with special educational needs (SEN). The activities use Widgit Symbols to help learners with cognitive learning difficulties, who have difficulty following instructions given purely in text or remembering a series of instructions.

In these activities, students investigate what affects objects sliding down a slope, and investigate landslides and avalanches.
