A Brighter Future for Everyone

Science

Our next exciting science topic is called 'States of Matter'.

We will learn about identifying and grouping solids, liquids and gasses; some of their properties and what happens when they change state.

Lessons will be posted here weekly so that you can keep up with your learning if you are at home.

Lesson 

Main learning

  Follow up activity

1.

I can recognise the properties of solids,liquids and gasses

Click on the picture below to watch an Oak academy lesson delivered by Miss Couves.

In this lesson, you will learn about the three states of matter, the properties of each state of matter and how to identify which state of matter a substance is in.

Activity 1

Open the  resource 'Sorting Table'.

Draw the table on a piece of paper and try to find at least 5 items that you can put in each column.

For ideas of items you could use, open the resource

' Solids,liquids and gasses pictures'.

Extension: 

Can you think of any items that may go in more than one category?

For example, how about a bottle of lemonade?

Make extra notes on any of these items.

Activity 2

Try answering the questions on the resource

'Solids, liquids and gasses questions.'

If you post  your work on Dojo,

I will check your answers for you.

 

Remember it is fine to just write the answers out on a piece of paper.smiley

2

I can describe how particles behave in solids,liquids and gases.

Click on the picture below to watch another Oak Academy lesson delivered by Miss Couves.

In this lesson, you will learn that all matter is made up of particles. Particles are arranged in different ways in solids, liquids and gases giving them different properties. You will also learn how scientists use diagrams to represent the arrangement of particles.

As you work through the video, Miss Couves gives you lots of activities to complete.

Open the resource,

Particles in solids,liquids and gases,

and ensure you have completed these different activities.

As always, no need to print anything,just write your answers on paper.

I can describe what happens when you heat and cool each state of matter.

Click on the picture below to watch another Oak Academy lesson delivered by Miss Couves.

In this lesson, you will learn what happens to the behaviour and arrangement of particles when they are heated or cooled. You will also investigate some uses of these properties such as cooling gases in order to store them.

Complete the activities set by Miss Couves as you go along.Also make sure you complete the quizzes at both the beginning and end of today's lesson.

Here is an additional activity to reinforce what you have learnt.

4.

I can explain what changes of state are and why they take place.

Here's another lesson from Miss for you to enjoy.

Click on the picture to access the lesson.

In this lesson,you  will learn what happens to the behaviour and arrangement of particles when they are heated or cooled. You will also investigate some uses of these properties such as cooling gases in order to store them.

Complete the activities that Miss Couves sets as you progress with the lesson.

Once the lesson is complete,have a go at answering these questions.

 

To complete the lesson, have a go at this quiz to see what you have learnt.

Finally,click here to complete a quiz to test what you have learnt from today's lesson.

This part isn't ready yet team.

Give me a moment or two and I'll have it looking super duper for you.
