A collection of resources from the SYCD Primary CD investigating states of matter and the properties of materials. The major resources are: *Investigating ice - an investigation into melting ice developed across three age groups, 5-7 years, 7-9 years and 9-11 years. *Baking bread - a colour photograph of bread making in Peru is the stimulus for children to make and investigate bread, using the worksheets provided. *Solids, liquids and gases traffic lights - a quick game to aid revision on solids, liquids and gases. *An A-Z quiz on materials and their properties - a quick and fun revision game to revise science vocabulary for Materials and Their Properties. *Solids, liquids and gases drama - guidance on how to reinforce the ways in which solids, liquids and gases behave, by getting children to show in movement the molecular structure of each state of matter.
