This pack includes everything you need to teach Year Three Chemical Science for the whole term! It includes detailed lesson plans, PowerPoint slides and warm-ups, and optional assessment. It's packed with engaging resources which are aligned to the Australian Curriculum. You can follow the unit step by step, or mix and match activities to suit your class!


Through this unit, students explore materials and how they respond to changes in temperature. They are introduced to the three states of matter, explore heat sources and also how this knowledge can be used to recycle materials. At the end of this unit, students will be able to;

  • Identify examples of solids and liquids (with an introduction to gas).

  • Make predictions as to how matter will respond to adding and removing heat.

  • Identify heat sources and ways to remove heat.

  • Explain how adding and removing heat can recycle materials.
