Students in year one discover chemical science by manipulating materials in a variety of ways. This can be facilitated by comparing how the shapes of objects are made from various materials that can by physically changed by bending, stretching and twisting. Students can explore the properties of plastic by experimenting with its strength and flexibility when heated or cooled. This allows children to also predict and observe the outcome of what is physically tested and changed.
Students in year two discover chemical science by exploring various materials that can be combined for a particular purpose (ACARA, 2015). Physical science can be explored by experimenting with paint and…
