Abstract

This science-based learning module for years 1-2 (5-7 years of age) focuses on exploring the concept of change in relation to natural and processed materials. In everyday life, change is constantly occurring. Experiments are used to predict and investigate what causes change in solids, liquids and gases, and how and why change occurs e.g. chocolate melts in the sun, water evaporates from puddles, pasta becomes soft in boiling water. Keeping a class science journal is an integral part of this learning module and assists in connecting science with literacy.
