Just Add Water
Aimed at primary level, the seventeen activities this pack investigate science around the theme of water. They link to the topics of states of matter, materials, electricity and area of design and technology and geography.
The activities include: creating a model of the water cycle, demonstrating surface tension, building a solar still, filtering water, use salt water as an electrical conductor and building mini-rafts.
Teachers' notes are provided within the pack and include concise summaries of the science involved in the investigations. Designed to demonstrate key ideas and concepts, and to spark an interest in science and engineering, they could be used in class or within a science week or club.
A Welsh language version of the pack is also available to download, which provides a Welsh student section.
This resource is part of the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week activity pack series.
