Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

This resource was developed with Royal Society of Chemistry funding. Its original aim was to support Cub Scout leaders with the Scientist badge. However, it also works really well with KS2 pupils in school. The leaders notes contain a detailed plan for running the activity in class. It is recommended that you read these through and have a test run before doing this is school. You will also need to complete your own Risk Assessment. Its a really exciting hands-on experiment which pupils will be desperate to manipulate for themselves! Pupils will learn about a fair test, reaction rates, states of matter, forces

Entire Inquiry Space and Earth Systems Unit with Lesson Plans and Fun Activities

Entire Inquiry Space and Earth Systems Unit with Lesson Plans and Fun Activities

This is an entire unit for the Space curriculum. It fits the expectations for the Ontario Science Curriculum. If you are considering it, please consider my bundle of science for grade 6 as it will save money overall. The unit includes absolutely everything you could use for this unit to teach it as either language or as science. This unit is designed to be taught as either a series of guided reading centres, or as a science unit. Students will enjoy the inquiry style research activities and discovery and teachers you will enjoy the less stress as lessons are pre-planned and require no effort on your part! For the first time I have also included some of my interactive notebook activities to do with student. Writing, reading and science all mix effortlessly in this unit to make covering more of the curriculum easier. All lessons come with a detailed lesson instruction sheet and can easily be printed and left for a substitute. As the units are also pdf's they can be put on google classroom easily and those students requiring assistive tech will have no difficulty accessing the pages using google read and write. The Unit Covers: - Planets - Characteristics of Inner and Outer Planets - International Space Station - Technology invented because of space travel - Challenges of Living in Space - Types of Ways to Investigate Space - Canadian contributions to space activity - Pros and Cons of space exploration - Podcast activity from Nasa Furthermore I have thrown in a section of Vocabulary cards that you can print, laminate and put up on a bulletin board to keep from year to year. They come with a brief explanation of the word. I have noted that this could take two months, however you could easily complete these lessons within a couple of weeks if you used them for language and science. This unit will come with worksheets and activities.

Living in a Material World - STEAM resource

Living in a Material World - STEAM resource

This unit of work describes four one-hour lessons that are based on the Year 5 statutory and non-statutory requirements for ‘Properties and changes of materials’ in the Science Programmes of Study, National Curriculum for England. The emphasis is on the use of the body to show material properties and the changes that can happen to a material. The first three lessons are intended to complement classroom learning and experiments. The non-statutory guidance suggests that students ‘should find out how chemists create new materials’ and in the final lesson, students improvise a significant material-related invention – the sticky or Post-it note. In their exploration of the invention, they will learn how the invention came about because of a frustrating situation that led to a real need for reusable bookmarks and how the original material created by Spencer Silver was adapted for this purpose by a colleague also working at 3M. Therefore an important teaching point is that collaborative practices were key in the invention process. This unit of work was published in Teaching Drama magazine, Autumn 1, 2017/2018

Flip and Clip Mixtures/Solutions Charts

Flip and Clip Mixtures/Solutions Charts

This includes 5 flip and clip charts. It will ask students to identify either mixtures or solutions. Students clip the correct answers and then flip to self check. How I used in my class: Students worked independently. They Made a T-Chart showing mixtures and solutions in their notebooks. When they got an answer incorrect, they wrote the answer under the correct heading in their T-Charts. Some of the more challenging mixtures/solutions REPEAT to give students a chance to remember and practice them again later.
