Liquid                                                                      Materials with no definite size or shape. 

Gas                                                                          Materials with a fixed size/volume but no definite shape. 

Solid                                                                        Materials with a fixed size/volume and a definite shape. 

  1. What are some of the properties/traits that we can use to identify matter? 
  2. What are non-Newtonian fluids and why are they different? 
  3. What is an example of a non-Newtonian fluid? Where did it get its name? 
  4. What is viscosity? 
  5. What is different about the viscosity of non-Newtonian fluids compared to normal materials? 



* You only need to do one task a day 

  • Monday-Everyone will start with addition and subtraction number patterns. Watch the video first, then have a look at the first task. If you feel it’s too easy, skip to the Challenge. If you want to, do both. 


  • Watch the screencast video
  • Look carefully at the number patterns below. 
  • Identify the rule and fill in the missing numbers to complete the pattern. 


Look carefully at the number patterns below. 

Identify the rule (just write it at the side) and fill in the missing numbers to complete the pattern. 


Learning Intentions: To write a procedural report for a scientific experiment.  

Success Criteria: I can write a procedural report for a scientific experiment when given a structure.  

Task Instructions: 

Step 1: Watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CP9j29fBHtM 

Step 2: Write out the procedural piece for the experiment by using the structure below.  

Step 3: If you have the materials at home, and have permission from parent or adult, make the Ooblek and upload some photos/video if you have parent/adult permission. 

Simple Scientific Procedural Structure 

Title: What is the name of the experiment? 

Aim: What are you investigating or demonstrating?  

Materials/Equipment: What do you need to use? 

Remember to try and use brackets to add extra information.  e.g. milk (300mL) 

Method: What steps need to be taken to do the experiment? 

Make sure you number your steps. 

Use time words, e.g. firstly, after.  

Remember to include all necessary steps.  

Use specific verbs – for example, don’t use the word ‘get’ all the time, use ‘collect’ or ‘take’.  

Use adverbs e.g. carefully, slowly. 

Results: What happened? 

Describe what you saw happen. 

Conclusion: Why did it happen?  

Explain the science behind the results.  

Make sure you use scientific language and specific verbs where possible e.g. reaction, change, produced.
