The Chemedian: Starting Secondary School
This resource contains a colourful comic, aimed at Key Stage Two, where children learn about the properties of materials and then design an investigation on dissolving. It promotes enquiry skills in a context, looking at how to create a fair test by changing one variable to see how it affects the rate that salt dissolves in water.
Follow Selena as she starts secondary school and gets into all sorts of adventures. Although excited by science learning, she wasn't listening in class so needs help with an investigation she is asked to do.
Teachers' notes provide a link from the comic to the investigation and include an explanation of the science involved and detailed lesson plans with curriculum links, extension opportunities, equipment list and a planning sheet.
The comic, produced by the University of the West of England is part of a collection of science comics which aim to engage children with science and reading.
