Developing Experts - 'Should do' task

If you have any problems logging on to Developing Experts, please email us. Please see the email and letter with your individual code. There will be a new lesson on the website each Monday. 


This week's lesson is 'Understand that some changes to materials are not reversible'. 


For each lesson, watch the presentation, then scroll down for the quiz, assessment and a wordsearch. Click on the Narration button to hear the words. Each lesson has 'Rocket words' (key vocabulary) to learn and test yourself on. There is a 'Mission Assignment' each week to extend your learning, if you have time.


This week, there is a choice of two tasks:


Chemical Reaction or Not?
Use the Mission Assignment film and follow the instructions on the handout below to help with this experiment. This experiment is to test the different reactions from various liquids.

Observe to see if a chemical reaction occurs in each mixture. You do not need test tubes - just use any container you have to hand. (see resources for more help).
