Reversible & Irreversible Changes

 

Big Bang Education’s Year 6 Chemical Sciences program has been designed to help teachers achieve the Australian Curriculum science understanding in Chemical Sciences:

  • Changes to materials can be reversible or irreversible (ACSSU095).

Year 6 students will first experience an exciting science show which introduces them to the concepts of reversible changes (such as simple mixtures and changes in state) and irreversible changes (including chemical reactions).

During the hands-on workshop that follows, students will conduct their own investigations into reversible and irreversible changes.

Workshops are facilitated by a professional science educator with over 10 years of experience.

Program Outline

The program includes:

  • 75-90 minute hands-on workshop for each individual class (maximum of 30 children)
  • Follow-up worksheets emailed to the booking teacher

Depending on your daily timetable, we can cater for 2-4 classes per day.

  • Eight large tables for workshop materials
  • Access to a power point and water nearby. Nearby access to a wet area for cleaning up is also preferred.

 

Curriculum Links

The Year 6 Chemical Sciences program covers the following areas of the Australian Curriculum:

Changes to materials can be reversible or irreversible (ACSSU095)

Science involves testing predictions by gathering data and using evidence to develop explanations of events and phenomena and reflects historical and cultural contributions (ACSHE098)

Construct and use a range of representations, including tables and graphs, to represent and describe observations, patterns or relationships in data using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS107)

Compare data with predictions and use as evidence in developing explanations (ACSIS221)

Reflect on and suggest improvements to scientific investigations (ACSIS108)

Decide variables to be changed and measured in fair tests, and observe measure and record data with accuracy using digital technologies as appropriate (ACSIS104)
