Can I Believe Everything I See?

Join Martin Dougan (CBBC Newsround) to answer the question: Can I believe everything I see?

It is one of five interactive sessions, called Life’s Big Questions, asking children big scientific and philosophical questions about how we experience the world and why the senses aren’t as simple as they seem. Get ready for jaw dropping illusions, mind boggling challenges and exciting investigations in this extraordinary journey into the human brain.

Work with your class to answer Life’s Big Questions. Then upload their answers to the questions in a survey of the senses and find out how their answers compare to those of other children.
