Displacement Reactions of Metals

In this microscale chemistry experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students carry out reactions between metals and metal salts on a clear plastic sheet covering a work sheet. The reactions involve the metals copper, magnesium, zinc and iron. The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the...

The Effect of Heat on Metal Carbonates

In this classic experiment, from the Royal Society of Chemistry, students heat different metal carbonates and bubble the collected carbon dioxide through limewater. The time taken for the limewater to turn cloudy is related to the metals reactivity. The resource is set out as teachers' notes followed by the...

Egg Box and Cress Heads *suitable for home teaching*

The Egg Box resource is a series of seven eggy experiments from Planet Science for children to investigate. Extra science notes are given with each experiment for parents to discuss with their children. Cress Heads has a further three experiments on growing cress, jumping beans and foil spirals from Planet Science...

The Earth in Space *suitable for home teaching*

A Year 11 module from the Salters’ Key Stage Four double award science course. This module begins with revision of prior knowledge about stars, planets, moons and other bodies found in space. Students then consider gravity as the force which controls movement of bodies...

Making Use of Oil *suitable for home teaching*

A Year 11 module from the Salters’ Key Stage Four double award science course. This module deals with the location, extraction and processing of oil, the way in which supply of different oil fractions is balanced against demand and the issues related to conservation of...

Fantastic Plastic *suitable for home teaching*

This booklet is part of the ‘Innovations in Practical Work’ series published by the Gatsby Science Enhancement Programme (SEP). Plastics – or polymers as they are more correctly called – look set to be the material of the future. Think of any product and it is likely that it consists, at least in part, of a polymer...

Key Stage Three: How Plants Guzzle *suitable for home teaching*

Two lessons from the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC)'s Seeing Science in which students look at how some plants absorb heavy metals. The lessons include an experiment to measure the amount of copper absorbed by lettuce and radish plants. In another activity, students use evidence cards and a map to...

Electricity in the Home *suitable for home teaching*

A Year Ten module from the Salters double award science course. Models are used to illustrate conservation of current in a series circuit leading to studies of voltage, current and resistance and the resistance law. Devices which have different resistance in response to...

Noisy Coat Hangers *suitable for home teaching*

The Noisy Coat Hangers Experiment from Planet Science, available in English, French, German and Spanish, is used as a demonstration to allow students to compare how efficiently sound travels through solids and through gases and why it travels at different rates according to the substance. This resource is aimed at...

Earth Science *suitable for home teaching*

This is a selection of resources from the Association for Science Education (ASE) which support earth science teaching for students aged 11-16. Rock cycle: A PowerPoint template that students use to produce their own ICT presentation based on the formation of the different types of rock. This is approached...
