Topic 1 - Potions (Advent 1)

Define potion: a poison, a mixture, an aromatic brew, a vapour, a liquid or sticky goo.

Welcome to the amazing magical world of potions and their properties...

Now scientists, beware! There are some powerful and deadly potions out there - dangerous, unpredictable or plain tragic (just ask Romeo and Juliet!).

Use what you know about materials and their properties to create incredible potions in Professor Hazard's Potions class.

Feeling sleepy? Hmmm - that orange juice did taste a little strange...

Here are some of the key words we will be using in our learning about potions:

Solid                liquid                gas              melting              freezing                evaporation         

molecules          particles              fair test              antidote             anaesthetic          discovery   

viscosity              states of matter               potion                poison                  medicine

medicinal         surgery           dangerous           temperature             properties         capacity 

Ask an adult or look in a dictionary if you don't know what any of them mean.
