Properties of metals

Properties of metals

Originally designed as a puzzle, this resource can also be used as a poster in teaching the properties of metals. I thought a jig-saw puzzle would make this subject area more interactive and interesting. Approximately 20 metals covered listing alloys, pure metals, melting points, composition and properties, along with photos illustrating popular uses.

Bean sprouts and bag gardens

Bean sprouts and bag gardens

There are some resources here about growing beansprouts in class - takes about a week. You can do this easily and make it a Science project and use it to create graphs in maths. The bag garden thing is an extension of this, but it's a method used in Africa too, so great cross-curricualr links! There also is a national competition.
