Transcript of Material World - 'Mixtures'

Material World - 'Mixtures'
By Richelle Ward, Anthony McIver & Gemma Cordi
Stage 1, Year 1
What science concept could we explore that is educational, yet engaging within the early childhood setting?
Our Lightbulb Moment...

Syllabus Outcomes
- NSW (Australian Curriculum)

Prior Knowledge
Creating a class definition of 'Mixture'.
Opportunity for students to self-explore.
Teacher asks questions that create meaning from play.
Why is 'play pedagogy' important in science? (Fleer & Skamp)
Ready... Set... Paint!!!
Play Experience 3:
Examples of possible activities include...
Today's Activity #2 -
Today's Activity #1 -
To Summarise,
This is what we have achieved...

Learning Engagement Checklist:
Until the next time... BYE!!
"Bob The Builder"
needs our help in today's Science lesson!
Through creative scenarios the class will help Bob:
- CONSTRUCT meaning
- BUILD a scientific understanding
- UNCLOG new information from their brain!
A student:
› identifies ways that everyday materials can be physically changed and combined for a particular purpose (ST1-12MW).
› use their senses to identify the similarities and differences in the properties of materials, eg the textures of different objects, the difference in hardness of solid materials and the runniness of different liquids (ST1-13MW).
A student:
› explores their immediate surroundings by questioning, observing using their senses and communicating to share their observations and ideas. (STe-4WS)
The INTRODUCTION activity for this Science lesson will centre upon this learnt knowledge (acting as a pre-test), and will also prove as a springboard into the next class activity.
Dizzy has poured LOLLIES inside the pipes instead of cement... so naughty.

Let's help Bob investigate!
Motivation and engagement
Meaningful learning
Students make their own discoveries. Play takes advantage of a child’s natural curiosity.
When provided with the freedom to explore, students feel a sense of ownership over their learning.
The practical aspect of play provides students with a real life context.
Students are not aware that they are learning through play.
Can we fix it?

Help Bob and his crew build something colourful for Mr. Sabatini.
Students use with play-doh to explore how materials can be physically changed
Students may combine different colours together
Students think of real life contexts which require similar physical changes
Discovery Learning Approach (Abruscato)
Play Pedagogy (Skamp & Fleer)
The 5 E’s (Bybee)
Constructivism (Vygotsky & Piaget)
Inquiry Based Learning (Kath Murdoch Model)
Learning Processes- Investigating, Designing & Making and Using Technology (BOS Syllabus)

Formative Assessment:
• Informal observation- student’s behaviour, as well as participation in direct questioning and whole class discussion.
Summative Assessment:
• Independent study- progression from the initial pre-test to final investigation
• Anecdotal notes- recorded for each student, as a source of reflection and future programming.
(in other KLA's)

* Measurement- measuring the specific amount of colours need to mix in order to make a new one.
Visual Arts-
* exploration of the colour wheel
* classification of colours
(e.g. primary/secondary/ tertiary)
*effectiveness of colour mixtures in artworks for effect

Food Technology-
* Natural mixtures in everyday food items
* Analysis of baking a cake, through the mixing of different ingredients in a safe environment
* Exploration of the 'Procedure'
text type- systematically recording the steps required to make a certain mixture.
A new school- Sunflower Valley Elementary has been built in Bobsville, just
around the corner from where Bob and the rest of his crew live.
Now that the school is finished being built, Principal Pickles needs the walls
of the new kindy classroom painted before the children can start learning.
Can you help Bob, Wendy & Principal Pickles design what the classroom should
look like?
Within this concept, the final exploration children will partake in is the idea of mixtures through exposure to colour.
Coupled with a pedagogy of play, this means teachers can better integrate different activities from a variety of KLA's in order to cater for all students alike.
Literature & Drama -
'Little Blue, Little Yellow' By Leon Lionni
Investigation - Magic Milk Experiment
IWB Game - 'The Mixing Room':
Zip-Lock Bag Artworks
Sculpture - Coloured Paper Art
Painting - Coloured Ice Creations
Thanks to all of your hard work in Science, you have now helped
Bob, Wendy, Mr Sabatini, Principal Pickles & the rest of the crew
build a better town for the people of Bobsville.
Look who it is...
It's Bob The Builder!!!
