Big Bang Education’s Year 3 Physical and Chemical Sciences program has been designed to help teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understandings in Physical Sciences and Chemical Sciences:
Heat can be produced in many ways and can move from one object to another (ACSSU049);
A change of state between solid and liquid can be caused by adding or removing heat (ACSSU046).
Year 3 students will first experience an exciting science show which introduces them to the states of matter (solid, liquid and gas) and how substances can change from one state to another, and the effects on different materials when exposed to extreme temperatures.
During the hands-on workshop that follows, students will investigate different sources of heat; how heating and cooling can cause changes in states of matter; and how to measure temperature using thermometers.
