Kitchen Concoctions

The Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC) resources put curriculum science in real-life contexts. These materials focus on the use of mixtures in the kitchen and can be used to illustrate the properties of materials. Students examine a mince-pie as a 'mixture' and compare 'real' dairy cream with imitation aerosol cream. A wide range of activities, that look at the properties of materials and their uses include: *Baking mince pies* Making a soap bar * Developing a bubble mixture * Investigating the effectiveness of washing products and scourers * Making a simple fire extinguisher. Extensive teacher guidance, presentations and children's activity sheets are included (some within zip files).
