In a new unique set of resources developed especially for Essex 2020, Little Stars Circus demonstrates scientific concepts (in line with the national curriculum) using circus skills.
These resources can be used by teachers during lessons or by students for further study.
Each resource consists of a video that demonstrates the concepts covered and an accompanying teacher pack. The pdf pack includes a guide about how to use the video, student handouts and academic specifications (per exam board).
This Circus Science resource is for GCSE Biology and uses circus arts to demonstrate the principles of respiration and body temperature control.
