Group 29 Chemical Reactions
This way for Group 30 - Electricity & Microelectronics

What happens when elements react & combine?

Science - Interactive Guidelines Curriculum for Excellence - draft outcomes
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Second) - SCN 233Z - I have developed my skills in questioning, observation and recording by taking part in activities which demonstrate simple chemical reactions safely using everyday ‘kitchen chemicals’.
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Third) - SCN 327Z - I have carried out activities to help my understanding of how elements interact with each other to form ‘new’ substances. I can carry out a demonstration to provide convincing evidence for others that each of the original elements is still present in the new substance.
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Third) - SCN 328Z - Through a range of experiments I can identify the clues that indicate a chemical reaction has occurred. I can apply my knowledge of chemical and physical changes to analyse everyday examples of change.
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Fourth) - SCN 442Z Chem - I can collect and analyse experimental data on rates of chemical reactions and relate my findings to my everyday experience.
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Third) - SCN 329Z - I have taken part in activities and investigations which have developed my understanding of the chemistry behind some everyday household products.
CfE (Planet Earth - Climate & Earth Science) (Level Third) - SCN 306D - I can design and carry out activities on dissolving, interpret experimental evidence to draw a valid conclusion on the conservation of mass, and explain my findings to others.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Third) - SCN 332BB - Through research and group discussion, I have contributed to an evaluation of a media item with regard to its scientific content.

CfE (Planet Earth - Sustainability) (Level Fourth) - SCN 401A Chem - I can carry out a variety of chemical reactions which model how different environmental conditions impact on Earth materials.
CfE (Planet Earth - Sustainability) (Level Fourth) - SCN 402A Chem - I can research and investigate the extraction of metals from their ores. I can debate the ethical issues surrounding their production and contribute to a discussion on the sustainable use and conservation of finite resources.
CfE (Planet Earth - Sustainability) (Level Fourth) - SCN 403A Chem - Using my knowledge and understanding, I can express an informed view on a national or global environmental issue.
CfE (Materials - Elements) (Level Fourth) - SCN 440Y Chem - Based on experimental work, I can place metals in an electrochemical series and apply this knowledge to help my understanding of batteries and preventing corrosion.
CfE (Materials - Chemical reactions) (Level Fourth) - SCN 441Z Chem - I can use my knowledge of the structure of the atom to explain how atoms join together forming different compounds with different properties, and can write formulae equations for a variety of reactions.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 443BB ALL - I have researched a new development in science and can show how its current or future application might impact on modern life.
CfE (Topical Science) (Level Fourth) - SCN 444BB ALL - Having selected a scientific theme of topical interest, I can critically analyse the issues, and use relevant information to develop an informed argument.
