This is a reproduction of a resource page for IB MYP years 4 and 5 Chemistry students that used to reside on my homepage. It contains links to online PowerPoint slides on the topics I covered with my students when I taught them a long time ago. Revamping my homepage also involved removing many of these pages, hence the reproduction for the benefit of those who use them.
A video of my MYP Year 4 students analyzing their fuels for their hot air balloons and making their hot air balloon out of tissue paper.
Detailed instructions on how to make a tissue-paper hot air balloon.
Deciding on the Ballooney Baku "race" to enter their tissue-paper hot air balloon in, identifying the kind of fuel necessary to win the race, and analyzing the fuels.
This is how a series of lessons, using tissue-paper hot-air balloons as a stimulus for a study of Fuels and Energy in MYP year four Science, began at The International School of Azerbaijan in Baku, Azerbaijan.
How I used discrepant events in my IB MYP years 4 and 5 Science lessons and links to videos of some of them.
