These instructions are for Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 students who take the role of a scientist in the A Day in the Life activities. Follow the instructions to get sample scientific results from the Worldmap software and then use these in your activity.
You can get a set of scientific results using the Worldmap software. Worldmap lets you choose a species and see how common it is in different areas of the world.
On your map you will see circles of colour that correspond to how common a species is in that area. The higher the number associated with the colour (look at the key in the top-right corner of the map for this), the more common the species is.
The species have scientific names, so you won’t recognise them to start with. Look them up on the internet to find out their common names.
Once you have generated your map, ask yourself the following questions:
Use Cullumanus Cu. as an example if you're not sure which species to start with.
