Contents List


Sc 2: Life Processes And Living Things

  • 7 DEAD OR ALIVE? Students focus on the differences between living and non-living things, through identifying the functions of living organisms. (SC 2/Level 3)
  • 9 WHERE DO THEY LIVE? Students consider which features of creatures enable them to survive in particular habitats. (SC 2/Level 3)
  • 11 LET IT GROW Students assess the role of food and essential minerals in plant growth, by consulting a table showing wheat yield per hectare. (SC 2/Level 3)
  • 13 WHO'S ON THE MENU? Feeding relationships in food chains are examined through an activity based on an illustration of a food chain. (SC 2/Level 4)
  • 15 PARTS OF A PLANT A labelling exercise focusing on the structure and function of the parts of a flowering plant. (SC 2/Level 4-5)
  • 17 GROWING PAINS Students identify the physical changes of puberty through a sorting activity focusing on male and female changes. (SC 2/Level 5)
  • 19 WHY HERE? Students show their understanding of the connection between the features of an environment and its living organisms. (SC 2/Level 5-6)
  • 21 EVERY BREATH YOU TAKE A matching exercise in which students show their understanding of the process of breathing. (SC 2/Level 6)
  • 23 PLANT OR ANIMAL CELL? Students distinguish between the features of plant and animal cells, through an activity based on a diagram of chlamydomonas. (SC 2/Level 6)

Sc 3: Materials And Their Properties

  • 25 GET IT SORTED! A sorting activity in which students classify materials according to criteria. (SC 3/Level 3)
  • 27 MATERIAL MATTERS Students select materials to match specific needs. (SC 3/Level 3)
  • 29 STATES OF MATTER A classifying activity based on the properties of solids, liquids and gases. (SC 3/Level 4)
  • 31 REVERSIBLE CHANGES A practical activity in which students heat chemical substances and decide whether the observed changes are reversible or irreversible. (SC 3/Level 4)
  • 33 SEPARATING MIXTURES An activity focusing on the principles and methods of separating mixtures. Students match drawings and methods. (SC 3/Level 4-5)
  • 35 TAKE THE TEMPERATURE Students interpret data on melting and boiling points They use a given table to identify the physical state of materials at specified temperatures. (SC 3/Level 4-5)
  • 37 METAL MIXES A matching exercise in which students use given information about metal alloys to choose suitable mixtures for specific purposes. (Sc 3/Level 5)
  • 39 MOVING PARTICLES A practical activity focusing on the movement of gas particles. Students observe a demonstration and record their observations and deductions. (Sc 3/Level 6)
  • 41 CHEMICAL REACTIONS Students write word equations using given information about chemical reactions. (Sc 3/Level 6)
  • 43 THAWING TIME Students plot a line graph to show the changing temperature of thawing ice in relation to the time. They answer questions based on the relation of change of state to energy. (Sc 3/Level 6)

SC 4: Physical Processes

  • 45 CIRCUIT CIRCUS Students examine diagrams of circuits and decide if named bulbs work. (Sc 4/Level 3-4)
  • 47 FORCING IT Students identify the effects of force in particular situations. They label an illustration of a cyclist to show the main forces. (Sc 4/Level 3-4)
  • 49 EAR TO THE GROUND An activity focusing on how sound travels through different materials. Students plot a bar graph based on given information. (Sc 4/Level 3-4)
  • 51 SUNNY SKIES Students add to an illustration to show the position of the sun at different times of day. (Sc 4/Level 4)
  • 53 SHADOWS AND LIGHT A practical activity to show understanding of how shadows are cast by light sources. (Sc 4/Level 4)
  • 55 SHOW SOME RESISTANCE A practical investigation of the effects of resistance on current. (Sc 4/Level 6)
  • 57 THE OUTER PLANETS Students use given data to produce a plan view of the arrangement of the outer planets. (Sc 4/Level 5)
  • 59 OVER THE HILL An activity to show understanding of how energy is conserved. (Sc 4/Level 6)
  • 61 SPACE VOYAGER Students interpret given data about an imaginary planet. (Sc 4/Level 6)
