Problem 6: Acid Erosion

This resource, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, can be used to demonstrate students’ understanding of strong and weak acids and pKa. It involves carrying out a series of titrations to determine which of three drinks is the least acidic, and hence which is the least...

Grid Multiplication as an Interim Step

This clip is the third of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Richard, in Lower Key Stage Two as he shows how to move children on from using an array to using the grid method for multiplication. Working with a small group of children he demonstrates how to...

James Webb Space Telescope: Designing the Primary Mirror

This activity looks at the primary mirror of the James Webb Space Telescope exploring the challenges that faced scientists and engineers whilst they were designing it. Linking to tessellating shapes in...

Handling Data: African Animal Maths (Age 7-11)

This resource from ARKive, aimed at Key Stage Two, focuses on handling data, using some of the species that inhabit the African savannah as a context. It involves completing a table on the height and weight of animals and converting heights from metres into centimetres. In a second activity children are asked to...

Weather

Produced by Innovate Educate and Aviation Heritage Lincolnshire, these materials allow primary children to look at and measure the weather.

The first set of activities, What's the Weather?, are aimed at younger primary children and encourage them to think about the weather. Children observe...

Sea the Heat

This resource, aimed at Key Stage Two, investigates heat transfer as one of the principles of heat pumps used to heat lifeboat stations. Linking to the topics of materials and their properties and changes of state, children learn how heat moves from high energy (warm) to lower energy (cold) down a gradient and how...

I Am a Star *suitable for home teaching*

This resource is based around the chemical composition of the human body and the origin of elements in the universe. Students can input a mass in the spreadsheet to see what proportion of their mass is from elements created in the Big Bang, in stars and in supernovae. Graphs are also shown for the relative...

Plastic challenge

This resource contains a series of lessons which are designed to extend students’ knowledge and understanding of plastics and plastic waste on a global scale. Linking to materials and their properties, the environment, recycling and design and technology, they contain investigations and activities aimed at both...

Burning Fossil Fuels

These activities look at what happens when fossil fuels burn. The activities include a demonstration of burning fuels with a paper-based student activity to look at the breaking and formation of bonds during combustion. The activities can be used to look at fossil fuels, exothermic and endothermic reactions,...

Water Supply and Developing Countries

This resource pack can be used to highlight issues such as global water scarcity, the challenges people face when sourcing water and maintaining a water supply in developing countries and the role of the engineers in solving these problems. Following a quick quiz, a presentation introduces the scale of local and...
