Ask an adult to help you select different foods that you think may contain more fat than others. Carefully rub each food in turn in one of the circles. Label each circle so that you can see which food was in which circle. Leave the paper to dry. When dry hold it up to the light. You should be able to see which foods contained more oil and fat as this will be left on the paper!
Evaporation happens all around us. Can you describe what is happening in these pictures? What conditions can make this change happen? What other examples of evaporation can you think of?
Look at the cards and diagram. Can you complete the diagram to show the reversible changes of condensation and evaporation?
Choose a room in your house and find all the things that use electricity to make them work. Can you find and draw the electricity source (the plug, switch or battery)? Remember: things that run off batteries also use electricity! If you are drawing light switches, add lines to show the wires which must run up to the light to make it work (even if they are hidden)
Look at these cards. Can you draw circuit diagrams using the correct symbols to match these descriptions?
In this experiment we will look at the effects of air (oxygen) on a candle flame. You will need an adult to help you with this one!
In this experiment we will be investigating to see if the temperature of the water affects how quickly salt will dissolve in it.
This is an experiment to help you learn about which materials will dissolve and which ones will not.
Look at electrical warning signs. What do you think they are trying to tell us? Now create your own electricity warning sign.
There is water in air! This simple experiment will help you to quickly see this.
Look at this diagram. Where does the water come from? Where does it go? Can you complete the diagram using the labels below?
Close your eyes and put your finger on one of these senses cards. Your game partner will offer you an object. Using only that sense, can you guess what the item is?
Using a soft animal toy and a doll, label the different parts. Which parts do we all have (head, eyes, ears, etc.)? Now collect a few different soft animal toys. Can you group the animals that all have the same body parts together (for example all the ones that have tails, all the ones that have wings, all the ones that have fur)?
Animals live in a wide variety of different habitats across the world. These include deserts, rainforests, seashores, hedgerows, polar expanses to name but a few. Think of three different animal habitats (around your home, in the UK or somewhere else in the world). Use what you know and your research skills to compare these two habitats using the data table below
In this activity you will learn how to clean some water!
Look at these pictures of different circuit components. Can you identify them? Cut them out. Can you match each one up with one of the label cards on the next page? Now shuffle the cards to play a game of Circuit Symbols Snap or matching pairs with a friend or adult to help revise these key components.
Materials usually exist as either a solid, a liquid or a gas. Look at the pictures on the next page. Can you cut them out and place them in the correct column to show whether they are a solid, liquid or gas?
Sound is made by vibrations in the air. Many musical instruments use different length strings to make different sounds. This investigation will examine how the length of string changes the sounds made.
Complete this investigation about changing liquids and solids and record your observations.
