The fourth in a series of lessons to develop children's knowledge about 'States of Matter,' for the 2014 primary curriculum. Links to coverage of the curriculum are explicit in the planning (for both States of Matter and Working Scientifically)
We are learning to observe when different materials change state when heated or cooled.
An interesting mastery question for a starter, to develop children's critical thinking and reasoning.
Recaps, revisits and builds on children's prior knowledge from previous lessons.
Develop's children's scientific knowledge freezing and melting for materials other than water.
Fun investigation to complete as a class. Safety warnings on planning and PowerPoint for children to avoid the hot items.
Step by step modelling of the experiment modeled on the PowerPoint.
Further 'mastery' thinking required for deepening and mastering learning, through thought provoking questions etc.
3 differentiated activities (two are provided, one is an independent task and is on the PowerPoint- tasks can link with writing in literacy)
The tasks are linked to an Ancient Greek topic (writing to a Greek Goddess), although this can be very easily adapted to suit any topic.
