Science - Home Learning Activities

States of Matter.

Our Science topic is States of Matter. This ‘States of Matter’ unit will teach you about the differences between solids, liquids and gases, classifying objects and identifying their properties. I will post two lessons per week for you to have a go at.

Lesson 1: Solid, liquid or gas?

 

Work your way through the PowerPoint below and watch the video clip and then have a go at the activity.

Lesson 2: Investigating Gases.

As in Lesson 1, work your way through the PowerPoint below. 

 

There is a practical investigation in this lesson. If you have bottles of fizzy drinks and some weighing scales, then you can have a go! Do not worry if you do not have these things, you will still be able to understand what has happened from just reading the text.

Lesson 3: Heating and Cooling.

(Added 1st June).

 

This lesson involves chocolate! Enjoy!

 

Can you investigate materials as they change state? Do you understand why some materials can change state?

Lesson 4: Wonderful water!

(Added 1st June)

 

In this lesson, you will explain how water changes state. You will:

 

  • identify the different states water can be in.
  • identify the temperatures at which water changes state.
  •  identify and observe the processes that cause water to change state.

Lesson 5: Evaporation.

(Uploaded 7th June)

 

Can you carry out this investigation into evaporation? How do wet clothes and towels dry? Does temperature play an important role in how quickly something dries? If you have a garden, you could carry the investigation out outside, perhaps putting one towel in the sunshine, one in the shade and another in another part of your garden (you might want to wait until it stops raining!) If you don't have a garden, you could find 3 different spots in your home.

Science Investigations.

Food Chains:

What are herbivores, omnivores and carnivores? Do you know what consumers and producers are?Watch this learning clip to find out about food chains:

Then have a go at completing this activity. You can either print the images out and stick them onto some paper or you can simply write the names of the animals or plants.

Food Chain Sorting Cards

Grow a Rainbow:

You may have seen rainbows placed in the windows of houses as you have been for a daily walk. Why not have a go at growing your own rainbow? Follow the instructions to create your rainbow and then read carefully to learn the science behind it.

Tornado in a Bottle:

 

Here is an investigation linked to the Extreme Earth topic we covered earlier in the year. Have a go at creating your own tornado!
