Material World – Mixtures
The Science Learning Hub has many resources for primary teachers related to mixtures in the Material World strand of the New Zealand Curriculum. They come from a range of contexts and science stories and are grouped by resource type.
Mixtures is another topic that is frequently explored by primary teachers. Making Non-Newtonian liquids such as ooblek and flubber is lots of fun. See below for a list of links to hub resources.
