    At the Science Learning Hub, we know teaching chemistry can feel a bit overwhelming. In this recorded professional learning session, Greta Dromgool takes you step by step through key ideas associated with physical and chemical properties, including:

    • identifying properties of a range of different materials
    • grouping materials based on observed or measured properties
    • exploring additional resources available to support you

    You may find it easier to download the video and slide show presentation.

    Thank you so much. It is really valuable to get this information and to be constantly filling up our knowledge and competencies.
