We know the Canadian Curricula and the best hands-on solutions for teaching required outcomes. Let us you help you create a more dynamic and engaging science program. If you’re looking for support – either pre or post purchase – we have an incredible range of online and toll-free resources at your disposal.
What is SPARKvue?
Students often have the misconception that the distance from the sun is the main factor for the change in season. If that were the case, then the Northern and Southern Hemispheres would have the same seasons at the same time of the year, when in fact they are opposite.
Phase changes are an important part of chemistry and physical science curriculum — and Freeze Pops are an important part of everyone’s summer. What better way to take the edge off the summer heat than combining the two to make a cool activity that addresses changing states of matter?
Most students understand that things get warmer as temperature goes up, but it is in the science lab that we have an opportunity to really help them understand what temperature means.
