Over the next 3 weeks you must complete an activity/series of activities that total at least 15 points. How you choose to do so is up to you! For example, you may just complete the fifteen-point activity or may choose to do one ten and a five-point activity; you could also choose to do three five-point activities – it is completely your choice! Have a look at the activity menu below:

15 points 10 points 5 points
Make a list of foods that change state when heated or cooled, such as eggs, water, butter and chocolate. Plan and make an ‘alchemist’s banquet’ for your family, and include foods from your list. You could create a menu or make the items of food and pictures of you and your family trying it – perhaps you could add a bit of sparkle by sprinkling edible glitter or miniature silver and gold balls on top!


Use a magnet to test the magnetic properties of metals around your home and record your discoveries in a data table.


Describe the scientific changes that take place in each of the dishes at your alchemist’s banquet.



Find out if your family owns anything containing gold or another precious metal or gemstone. What can you find out about where it came from?


How many synonyms can you find for the word ‘portal’?


  Find out about (and watch!) films that show portals to other worlds, such as Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone and Star Trek.


Have you read a Harry Potter book? Write a book review for your friends describing the main characters.
