The Particle Theory

Students use this resource consisting of four slides with diagrams, written explanation and voice-over to understand the different behaviour of particles in matter in solid, liquid and gaseous states. There is a two-question quiz and a summary slide.


Is there too much air in chip packets? Connected Learning Experience (CLE)

This CLE investigates the properties of the various states of matter. Students follow instructions to predict the effect of changing a variable when planning an investigation. The activity focuses on safe use of equipment and accuracy in recording results. Students will construct a table to organise data and compare their ...


Properties of Solids, Liquids and Gases

Students use this resource consisting of five slides with diagrams, written explanation and voice-over to understand the properties of the three states of matter. There is a two-question quiz and a summary slide.


Let's make slime!

This resource explains how to make slime using cornflour to produce something called a non-Newtonian fluid. A non-Newtonian fluid is a substance which has properties of a liquid and a solid. This means it can flow like a liquid, but also can have a set shape. It all depends on the amount of force you apply to it. In this ...


Properties of liquid and gas

Nitrogen gas makes up 80% of the air we breathe, and if we cool the nitrogen gas down to minus 196 Celcius and squash it down we can turn it into liquid nitrogen. This liquid takes up much less space than it did as a gas. When we warm up liquid nitrogen it will turn back into a gas and take up more room, so what happens ...


Liquefied natural gas

Find out what liquefied natural gas (LNG) is and how it is produced and used. This is an information sheet describing the characteristics of LNG as well as how LNG is processed, stored, transported and used. It includes an image of an LNG tanker.


Types of matter: solids, liquids and gases

Select samples from an outdoor setting. Magnify the substances to atomic level so that the particles they consist of can be seen. Sort the substances into groups based on how the particles are arranged and how they move. Classify the substances as solids, liquids or gases. For example, classify argon as a gas and ice as ...


Light sound action: student digital

This is a student digital resource that contains interactive materials relevant to a study of light, sound, and electricity. This resource contains a rich array of digital interactive activities, simulations, video clips, supportive information and notebook questions, and is divided into several parts including sections ...
