Differentiated, synpoptic worksheets to assess students’ recall of the properties and uses of materials
Concrete is the most used material on earth. It’s used for everything from plant pots to tower blocks – even the Ancient Romans were using it. But concrete production is responsible for almost 7% of all carbon emissions, thanks to a key ingredient, cement. Currently, scientists around the world are seeking alternatives.
This resource on the topic of properties and uses of materials introduces students to the work scientists are doing to make concrete production more sustainable. Use these differentiated, synoptic worksheets to assess students’ recall of prior learning and identify topics for revision.
Use this resource alongside the Education in Chemistry article, Concrete solutions.
