Each experiment features a series of short films, from setup to real-world application, with a selection of extensive learning materials.
Twig provides you with information on all the equipment used in each experiment. We cover familiar items like the Bunsen burner to more specialist equipment like the Hofmann apparatus, helping you to source what you need for the classroom.
These are images which can be used to reinforce best laboratory practice and technique in the classroom. Use the key image stills to review the main learning points of each experiment with students.
Each experiment provides links to other Twig films relating to the topic. Discover more about the related topic with Twig films, which provide additional real-world examples of the science in action. While Science Glossary films provide insight into any terms covered in the experiment, helping to reinforce key learning points.
Twig support materials provide clear and focused support for students in the classroom, as well as providing structure for independent study. Support materials provide an overview, while reinforcing the overall purpose of the experiment. Diagrams and worksheets are also located in the support materials tree.
The overview lists the key learning objectives of each experiment. Here you can read about the science behind the experiment. Find out the common misconceptions and what students should know by the end of the lesson with our experiment overview.
Our diagrams help students to visualise the complex science behind the experiments. Available with and without labels, the diagrams serve as revision tools in the classroom. Diagrams can be perfect for independent learning.
A series of questions:The experiment: Test the students’ understanding of facts and concepts.Beyond the experiment: Ask students to apply the experiment to real-world contexts.Challenge: Higher level questions that require research.
