In this lesson, we will learn about natural and synthetic materials. We will then investigate the properties and uses of three synthetic materials: glass, ceramics and plastics.
- Give reasons, based on evidence from comparative and fair tests, for the particular uses of everyday materials, including metals, wood and plastic
- Explain that some changes result in the formation of new materials
For next step we recommend the unit: Materials.
In this lesson, we will learn about sustainability and what we can do to live more sustainably. We will investigate which common items in our households can and cannot be recycled.
In this lesson, we will look at the sustainability of items based on their life cycle assessment and evaluate the use of reusable coffee cups over disposable ones.
In this lesson, we will learn about fuels and how they release energy in combustion reactions. We will also use word equations to describe these reactions.
In this lesson, we will learn about the impact of human activity such as burning fossil fuels on the global temperature. We will also interpret some data to draw conclusions.
In this lesson, we will look at the impact of humans on the environment, We will interpret some data to make recommendations about how people should choose to travel.
