This series of videos, produced by the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), gives ideas for teaching materials and their properties in the primary classroom. Presented by Sue Halliday and Lorelly Wilson, the demonstrations use everyday products and require no special equipment. They are designed for teachers to try out and become confident in before taking them into the classroom.
