Lesson 3: Research a Glacier

In this resource, students investigate how glaciers respond to climate change by building a model of a glacier and observing how fast it melts. The class can be split into groups, each researching a different glacier so that comparisons can be made. Information sheets are provided for seven glaciers. This resource...

Lesson 4: Glacier Research

In this resource, students investigate how glaciers respond to climate change by building a model of a glacier and observing how fast it melts. The data is analysed further using the Glacier vulnerability matrix which ranks the glaciers risk of melting due to its area, thickness, altitude and latitude. This...

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...

Mystery of Gibraltar

Students...

Red or blue flowers?

Students investigate transport in plants by seeing what happens when flowers are placed in different coloured solutions.

Leaking bag

This mystery can be used to introduce osmosis and diffusion. 

Two beakers are displayed at the front of the room. Both look identical in that they both contain a plastic zip--lock bag with a starch solution inside. The zip-lock bags are both sitting in a clear solution. What the students don’t know is that...

Eating nails

In this investigation, students extract iron from a breakfast cereal and consider how our bodies are able to digest iron by looking at its reactions with hydrochloric acid.

Gelli baff

Gelli Baff, a crystalline powder, has been dumped into a bathtub filled with water. How can you force the hydrogel to go down the plughole in order to drain the bathtub? 

In this investigation, students learn about swelling reactions, balanced reactions, and polymerisation. Students should be able to...

Grit on the streets

In the context of finding out why we grit roads in winter, students are shown what happens when salt is sprinkled onto ice lollies.  They are then asked If they believe that the temperature of the ice lolly with the salt will increase or decrease, causing it to melt faster. Students then investigate some...
