Vu Primary Science datalogging/ investigation eBook (Free!)

Lesson plan and student worksheets

Data Harvest

Product Description

Free teaching materials for primary students based around the Vu and Vu+ Data Logger. 

The activities have been organised by age suitability. The exercises sometimes repeat over age bands to take into account the learning that takes place. 

Section one 
outlines of exercises that match specific learning objectives or targets. 

Section two 
activities that have been expanded to work over a set of lessons or for a project. 

Section three
includes some resources that have come to our attention and may be useful in planning science investigations or Datalogging activities. 

 


Step-by-step video tutorial on all worksheets are covered in the  free Learn STEM site:
