Particle Theory in Practice

Particle Theory in Practice
Students enjoy practical, hands-on learning and the students in Miss Booth’s Year 7 science class were definitely spoiled earlier this week.
They were studying Particle Theory which involved knowing the different particle structures of solids, liquids and gases as well as knowing the six main rules of particle theory.  To make this subject matter come alive, students visited a number of different stations set up around the classroom where they needed to conduct some research using a Chromebook, make a physical model of the particle structure in question, answer a question and fill in their worksheet.
Students were engaged right from the start and really enjoyed the lesson.  More importantly, when I questioned the students to see what they had learned, every person was able to explain the  six rules of particle theory as well as the differences between the make up of solids, liquids and gases.
Well done Miss Booth!
