Learning Activity
Lots of materials can exist as both solids and liquids depending on the temperature.
Water freezes at 0 degrees Celsius and turns into a solid (ice), but becomes a liquid again when heat is applied.
Q. What happens to a bar of chocolate when it is heated? Yes, it melts.
If you are able to, and with the help of an adult, melt some chocolate and have a close look at it.
Q. What do you notice about its shape?
Q. What happens to the melted chocolate when it goes cold?
A. Yes, it turns back into a solid (solidifies).
Q. Does it look the same as it did before it was melted?
Q. Is it the same shape?
A. No, but it is still the same chocolate.
Q. What other materials do you know of that can melt and solidify again?
Discuss your ideas with a member of your family.
Activity one – Adult supervision needed
In this activity you are going to explore how different materials melt when heated.
Do all materials melt at the same temperature?

 

1. Look at the objects you will be testing – ice cubes, ice cream, butter, (keep these in the fridge/freezer until ready to carry out the investigation) wax and chocolate.
2. Which of these objects do you think will melt at room temperature? Make a prediction.
3. Complete the worksheet to help you plan your investigation – click to print or copy it into your Home Learning workbook.

States of Matter heating and cooling worksheet

4. When you have recorded your ideas, place the objects in the same part of the room for about 30/45 minutes, but keep checking on them every 5 minutes.

5. After 30 minutes look to see which have melted and which are still solid.

6. Record your results on the worksheet and explain what you found out. Were your predictions correct?

7. If any of the objects didn’t melt at room temperature, why might that be?

8. Will they melt if they are heated to a higher temperature than room temperature? (adult supervision required)

9. What happened when the objects were left to cool down again?

This week we will be continuing our learning about some of the key gurus (teachers) in Sikhism.
Last week, we learned about the first of the ten Sikh gurus –Guru Nanak and we thought about what it means to belong to Sikhism.
Can you make a list of some of the key teachings of Guru Nanak?
This week we will be learning about the tenth and last of the gurus- Guru Gobind Singh.

 

He was the founder of the Sikh community of the Khalsa. The word Khalsa means ‘the pure ones.’

Khalsa Sikhs follow five rules, known as the 5 K’s.

The 5K’s symbolise what it means to be a good Sikh.

Watch this video which explains the origins of the Khalsa. Click on the link below.  It tells the story of how the five beloved ones emerge from their test of faith as the very first
Sikhs.
