Change, Stages One and Two and Background
This Science 5/13 unit for teachers on Change stages one and two describes a range of activities that build children’s ideas about change and how it occurs. Rather than being a topic to pursue as a whole, it contains ideas that can be woven into other topics. However, one theme 'Changes in the kitchen' has been given in some detail to show how a theme might be developed. Background information about the science related to the changes involved is provided for the teacher. A separate unit Change stage three develops work for the upper primary, middle or lower secondary school years.

HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
