Lesson 1: Exploring temperatures

I’m sure you have all seen something melt before. This could have been snow, butter in a hot pan or ice in your drink. But do you know the exact temperatures materials need to be to melt?

Your first task is to research some materials and find out their exact melting temperature. Use this information to create a poster.

Note: Think back to your work on units of measurement in maths and make sure you use the corrects unit when writing out set temperatures.


Lesson 2: Melting button experiment (*this will require adult supervision and support)

To test your understanding and knowledge of changing a solid to a liquid, we would like you to try out an experiment using chocolate buttons.

For this experiment you will need:

Giant chocolate buttons

Small chocolate buttons

A pan

A timer

Consider how these buttons are the same and different.

We want to find out which button will melt the quickest. The giant or small.

First we would like you to make a prediction. Consider which button you think would melt the quickest and why?

Using your equipment melt both buttons and time how long it takes to melt. You can use a stopwatch on a phone for this.

Note down the timings.

Once you have completed the experiment. Write up your findings in a conclusion.

Please see supporting worksheet for this activity.
