SLIME Powerpoint and Worksheets! KS1/2

SLIME Powerpoint and Worksheets! KS1/2

This is an activity on how to make slime using just two key ingredients - washing up liquid and corn flour. The file contains a Powerpoint and a PDF presentation that is definitely going to catch the kids’ eyes, and two worksheets for the children to answer afterwards - because we can’t just make slime for the fun of it! I’ve tested this in my own Year 2 classroom and I HIGHLY recommend doing this activity outside - I had to speak very nicely to the cleaner after school when we did this one!

Science- float or sink, magnetic and not magnetic for SEN, Early Years and Primary

Science- float or sink, magnetic and not magnetic for SEN, Early Years and Primary

3 worksheets for Sink or Float. Also includes an extension worksheet for higher abilities to find and use own items. Allows children to predict if they think an item will sink or float. When given the items and a clear bowl filled with water they can place the item in and observe if the item sinks or floats, enabling them to discover if they were right or wrong in their predictions. A great activity for all abilities with 3 worksheets to demonstrate the children’s understanding and learning. Includes pictures of items to experiment with, and pictures for float or sink. 3 worksheets to discover magnetic and not magnetic items, plus 2 extension worksheets. Great to reinforce learning, use prediction and observation to record children’s understanding and learning. Includes a fourth worksheet for higher ability level students to record findings by answering some simple questions, recapping their observations, and a blank worksheet for students to select their own items to predict and check. Uses photographic items and clear pictures for items that are magnetic or not magnetic to enable easy recording. Get students to cut out and stick items, then record if they think it will be magnetic or not magnetic. Give them the items and a magnet and allow them to explore if their predictions were correct. For higher level students- encourage them to identify more obscure items, then predict if it will be magnetic or not magnetic, then allow them to discover if they were correct.
