  1. I'm sorry to post again on this topic but struggling to be creative. I teach year 5/6 and need an interesting lesson on changing state ( reversible/irreversible changes will be referred to but not main focus). I am struggling how to make it interesting and have only come up healting chocolate, bread and ice cube with tealights etc. I can't make it too complicated due to lack of resources, support! Any ideas would be greatly received. Ive found loads of games on bitesize etc but feel I need a bit more than this![​IMG]
     
  2. Have a look at this site - from making gloop using cornflour, to mixing milk and vinegar to make a plasticy material - you should find something exciting.

    If you do toast bread make sure you get the children to write their name with the toast. That always goes down a treat and sticks in their minds.
     
  3. write their name with the toast?? Thank you btw :)
     
  4. Yes seriously. If you burn the toast edges you get charcoal and the kids can use it to write their names . When you discuss changes - reversible or irreversible in later lessons this will have stuck with them.

    If you mix food colouring with milk and paint your name on the bread before you toast it you can eat your name ... (the milk evaporates leaving the name in the bread)
     
  9. I like the last idea!
