Change champions

Change is important; imagine one day waking up and nothing changed anymore. The weather didn’t change, cars didn’t move, water didn’t turn to ice, plants didn’t grow, you didn’t grow older… The world would be a very strange place!

This ‘Change champions’ activity pack is intended to be potential source of ideas for school or home activities. Children are set a science mission to find out about all the things that change.
'Change’ is a broad theme and can include many topics in a wide variety of science and engineering subjects.

  • There are ten activities and all can be accredited to CREST Star Investigator awards.
  • The activities in this pack cover physical processes of weather, erosion, movement, energy and sound (and the impact on engineering), the chemical processes of dissolving, colour change and change of state and the biological processes of growth and degradation.
  • Includes teacher's/background notes and a section for taking each activity further.
