Get your colourful lab coats on and invite some potential ‘clients’ to try out your education pack - share your Pinterest page and show them your investigating eggs video. Is your Education pack ready for the Science Museum or does it still need a few ‘changes’?!
i) Compare and group together everyday materials on the basis of their properties, including their solubility and response to magnets.
ii) Know that some materials will dissolve in liquid to form a solution, and describe how to recover a substance from a solution.
iii) Use knowledge of solids, liquids and gases to decide how mixtures might be separated, including through filtering, sieving and evaporating.
iv) Demonstrate that dissolving, mixing and changes of state are reversible changes.
v) Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials, and that this kind of change is not usually reversible, including changes associated with burning and the action of acid on bicarbonate of soda.
- Plan different types of scientific enquiries to answer questions, including recognising and controlling variables where necessary.
