Take care with your spelling, grammar, punctuation, and use scientific terms where they are appropriate. Sources of information could include: Use tables, charts, graphs or calculations to show any patterns in your results. Explain your conclusions using your science knowledge and understanding.
Think whether any improvements in your apparatus or method could give more precise and accurate results.
When you report what other people have said, say what scientific evidence they had (from experiments, surveys etc). Make sure your report is laid out clearly in a sensible order.
Use pictures, tables, charts, graphs etc to present information.
There will be no separate grade for practicals, but questions related to practicals will account for 15% of the total marks in the final exams.
My GCSE Science video tutorials deal specifically with mandatory practicals.
When drawing my observation I will be clearly highlighting major features such as the Kepler Crater, the Sea of Crises and the Caucasus Mountains. This is because as my data will not be completely accurate (as these observations are made by naked eye, and not using any equipment such as binoculars, telescopes of cameras) so I will not be able to cross-check my information, so any in-accuracies in my data will hopefully be corrected and thus my overall end result will be more reliable.
As stated before, I will produce labelled drawings for each evening showing all lunar features seen with the naked eye.
If not, consider whether you need to repeat it to check.
