Worksheet Overview

Scientific investigations are at the heart of science - and they're the best fun, aren't they?


Mad scientist


As you'll know by now, we at EdPlace like to join in the fun and we also like to do our best to help you get the most out of your own investigations.


So that means helping you to get your investigations sorted out - good and proper! 


Maybe you've looked at the 'planning' activities - not only does a good plan save a lot of heartache and wasted time when it all goes wrong, but it helps you to think through what you actually​ want to find out and how you're going to do it.


Science questions


So, here we are, carrying out an investigation into the dissolving of sugar. 


Ned and Conor have noticed that there are different sorts of sugar and they want to investigate whether or not the different sizes of granule affect how fast they dissolve. 


sugar crystals


They've made their plan - shall we see if it's going to work as they dive into the actual experiment?
