About This PDF
The Achieve! series of science titles has been developed for teachers who require modified, curriculum-focused activities for secondary school students who struggle to read and comprehend regular classroom materials because of poor literacy skills. Many of the pages will also be suitable as supplementary material for regular classes.
Chemistry for years 7–8 will assist teachers to develop lessons for the chemistry sub-strand in Science understanding for years 7 and 8.
Units of work cover a variety of topics, including:
- the different states of matter
- compounds and mixtures
- solutions and a range of separation techniques
- and physical and chemical changes.
Students build their scientific vocabulary and understanding of key concepts. Work sheets involving practical activities encourage students to plan and safely conduct experiments and to record and analyse data. Practical activities are clearly marked with a work safely symbol.
