Spring Science – Reversible and Irreversible changes (materials)

This term we have been learning about the properties of materials. We revised the three states of matter and discussed how materials change state.

 

Dissolving

We discussed what we thought dissolving meant and then explored some different materials and used science models to explain what was happening.

Absorbency

As part of our new learning, we explored the absorbency of materials and designed experiments to find out which was the most absorbent.

Separating mixtures and solutions

 

We worked together to find ways of separating mixtures using filtration and solutions using evaporation.
