Communicating matters

View Sequence overview

Students will:

  • investigate to identify and name the properties that help us describe a gas.
  • apply this to determine if something is a gas or not.


Students will represent their understanding as they:

  • record observations about the behaviour of gases using words and labelled diagrams.
  • make and discuss claims about the properties of gases.
