The demonstrations/activities in this resource have been designed to challenge students’ thinking as well as initiate lively classroom discussions that support constructivist learning. These short demonstrations/activities often involve discrepant events, related to the topic of focus in the senior Science curriculum, that may surprise students and that can be observed and/or investigated safely by students in the classroom. Where the outcome is not a surprise, the activity can focus student thinking about their direct experiences to develop an explanation that explains what they observed.
