Across a 10 week period, students will be developing their knowledge of the Chemical Sciences. In particular, they will learn about the changes that occur naturally and manmade to particular materials and whether they are reversible or irreversible. As part of the experimental component students will learn how to write a scientific report, then use this when experimenting with a study of the solubility of common substances in water. They will look at the changes in state caused by heating and cooling of a familiar substance, and apply this experimentally. An investigation on what happens when different materials are mixed, as will the changes that occur irreversibly. Reversible changes will be studied to explore the concept of recycling materials.
ACARA: Students begin to see the role of variables in measuring changes and learn how look for patterns and relationships between variables. They develop explanations for the patterns they observe, drawing on evidence.

Sequence of Learning Activities:
1. Introduction to the unit.
2. States of matter.
4. Mixing substances.
5. Reversible reactions.
6. Irreversible reactions.
7. Nail experiments.
8. Reversible to recycled.
9. Just for fun.
Research and present PowerPoint, poster, presentation on a recycled product. Important information must mention reversible properties- melting, solidifying, pulp, drying etc.
Adjustments for Learning Needs:
Teachers should take into account the requirements for ascertained and non-ascertained students and what their individual plans outline. Generally students with exceptional needs will require a reduction in content, scaffolding of tasks, individualised instruction, a list of websites to utilize during research activities (rather than looking for their own), a buddy/partner/small group for support.
Gifted and Talented students will require a larger supply of higher order thinking activities. These may include compare and contrast or classify as opposed to find and sort information.
