Ref. 1a,1b Solids, liquids and aases Lesson 1- Solids Lesson Objectives + to know that solids have a fixed shape * to know that solids have a fixed volume + to know how articles are packed in a solid - in rows, close together, only vibrate * given a substance or its properties, say if itis a solid or not * aS a result of these properties to know that solids are used for supportto bulld things Lesson Requirements 10 sets, each set consisting of + an ignition tube ( or clear small / 1cm* block) small / 1cm’ cube wooden block piece of plastercine coloured lego block worksheet "It's a solid” from Starting Science Resource Pack One Pg. 118 ‘Suggested Lesson PI arrange pupils into groups of 3 (suggest gender mix) give out worksheet “I's a solid” and ask pupils to put heading in their books “It's a solid” Pupils write in their books the writing in the top box on the worksheet pupils follow the worksheet Pupils who finish quickly could, for solids in the laboratory, make a table as below Solid What makes it a Solid ? + at end of lesson (time allowed will depend on group) use properties of solids to come up with the following model for particle packing in solids. If Teacher Absent ‘Starting Science Book 1 Pg. 33, 34, 35 - read and answer questions (full set of answers available) Homework lake a table as above for 8 solids at home Solid ‘What makes it a solid ? Risk nt © at start of lesson remind pupils not to let ignition tubes roll off the bench ‘+ remind pupils to obey Lab. Rules 5 Lesson 2 Liquids Lesson Objectives ‘+ to know that liquids have no fixed shape (they take the shape of the container) to know that liquids have a fixed volume to know how particles are packed in a liquid - not in a particular way, close together. moving about and changing places given a substance or its properties, say if itis a liquid or not as a result of these properties to know that liquids are used for pouring and passing through pipes Lesson Requirements 10 sets, each set consisting of ‘+ 100 cm? measuring cylinder 250 cm® conical flask 250 cm* beaker (plastic of glass) water dyed red water dyed blue worksheet “It’s a liquid” from Starting Science Resource Pack One Pg. 119 Suagested Lesson Plan arrange pupils into groups of 3 (suggest gender mix) give out worksheet “It's a liquid” and ask pupils to put heading in their books “It's a liquid” Pupils follow the worksheet, Pupils who finish quickly could, for liquids in the laboratory, make a table as below Uiquid I ‘What makes ita Liquid ? + at end of lesson (time allowed will depend on group) use properties of liquids to come up with the following model for particle packing in liquids 1O50G If Teacher Absent Science Book 1 Pg. 33, 34, 35 - read and answer questions (full set of answers available) Homework Make a table as above for 8 liquids at home. Tiquid What makes ita Liquid ? isk Assessment at start of lesson remind pupils not to spill the liquids and to clean up if they do * remind pupils to do homework purely from observing liquids at home (don't pour away expensive perfume) ‘* remind pupils to obey Lab.
