Crazy Chemicals

Bring out your student’s inner Scientist by conducting experiments, testing hypotheses and observing the chemical reactions of various solids, liquids and gases.

Foster scientific inquiry with innovative chemistry & physical science class activities.

In this 90-minute voyage of discovery, students explore the  chemical properties of matter and the physical properties of materials. Younger students (years F-4) will explore the observable properties of different materials and investigate how materials are modified for our everyday use. Older students (years 5-6) will explore the states of matter, different materials, and investigate chemical and physical changes.

Students will be divided into groups and sent on a rotation of exciting hands-on science activities to promote critical thinking exploring a range of chemical reactions and change processes. Students will be challenged to make their predictions and observations with terminology, keywords and equipment differentiated to match each year level.

By adjusting this incursion to suit your focus needs, our qualified teachers will guide all students through each learning activity, prompting them to predict, investigate, communicate and reflect along the way.

Scope of Learning Outcomes

Together we’ll select the learning outcomes that best suit class abilities and curriculum requirements. Examples include;

  • Comparing the use of materials for particular uses in our everyday lives
  • Identify and describe the various properties and behaviour of solids, liquids and gases
  • Analyse and describe the differences between physical and chemical change
  • Understand and apply basic laboratory procedures & practices of measurement, accuracy & equipment use
  • Application of scientific methodology and terminology
  • Communicate and discuss various observations and make conclusions.

Activities

(F-4)

  • Discuss prior knowledge of the properties of different materials such as metal, wood, and plastic
  • Make predictions while exploring different materials, and observing properties such as magnetism and the role of heat in chemical change
  • Explore various chemical reactions and observe key changes using sensory play and experimentation.

(5-6)

  • Reflect on prior knowledge of the properties and behaviour of solids, liquids, and gases
  • Apply the scientific method and conduct fair tests while exploring different materials, observing properties such as the role of heat in chemical change, and the mass of different states of matter
  • Conduct various chemical reactions and apply new terminology to describe chemical change, reversible vs irreversible reactions, and change in properties

Reviews

Genazzano FCJ

I loved how the girls were able to explore, then brought together for another experiment or chat about the science and then left to go again. Your explanations were easy to understand for the multi-age group

St Joseph’s Catholic PS

They were amazing! As well organised and the kids loved it. They arrived on time and always had the kids doing something.

St Peter’s PS

Emily was great. She had the students engaged from the start and was very explicit in her approach.
