Larch Class – Science Medium Term Plan: Solids and Liquids and how they can be separated (Unit 4d)/ Disaster at Wil y Wonkas Chocolate Factory (Miss Truesdale) Science Plan Year Group: 4 Topic: Moving & Growing (Funny Bones) Term: Autumn 1 Wk Learning Objectives Vocab/Resources Introduction Extended Core Modified Plenary Learning Outcome 1 To be able to categorise solids and liquids. To know the difference between a solid and a liquid. To name some solids and liquids. Solid, liquid, flow, pour, particles/pieces. Various different liquids and solids, with some solids that can be poured such as sand/salt. Elicit children existing knowledge of materials by presenting them with a collection of solids and asking them to group them according to their own criteria, ask children the reasons for these choices. Revise language for describing properties of materials (e.g. transparent, soft, bendy, stretchy, metal, wood, opaque). Next add some liquids (of various viscosity) to the collection, get the children to sort the materials again. If they do not automatically sort into solids and liquids, suggest this idea to them. Ask question such as What happens to liquids when you change the container? Can you spill the solids? Draw children’s attention to particular properties. Introduce the word viscosity as ‘runniness.’ Ask children to record these in their science books. Get children to write down 5 differences between solids and liquids. Go through the various properties of solids and liquids. Extend the activity further by adding ‘difficult’ items, e.g. cotton wool, sand, salt, sponge and get children to decide whether these items are solids or liquids. Ask children if they can explain why they have made their choices. Explain that although you can pour sand and salt e.t.c. they are still solids because they are made up of hundreds of little solid pieces. 1) Sort the materials on your table into solids and liquids. When you have sorted the materials, draw a line down the centre of your page, on one side list the solids and on the other side list the liquids. 2) List 5 differences between solids and liquids. Ask the children some true or false questions related to what they have learnt this lesson. E.g sand is a liquid. Liquids take the shape of the container they are in. e.t.c. To have sorted materials correctly into solids or liquids. Including difficult materials such as sand, salt, sponge, cotton wool, plastecine. 2 To be able to make and record observations and measurements. To know that liquids do not change volume when they are poured into a different container. To know that liquids will take the shape of the container they are put in. To be able to draw conclusions
