Primary resources The Royal Society of Chemistry recognises the value of primary science in developing a person’s chemical understanding. Through the teaching of fundamental concepts, such as changing of state and properties of materials you are laying the foundations of chemistry.

This collection of resources supports your subject knowledge and teaching of primary chemistry, including the linking of science with cross-curricula topics, with resources that detail investigations to run with your class.

The resources are further divided into common primary chemistry areas: reversible and irreversible change, everyday materials, solids, liquids and gases and earth science. For content that helps develop your teaching practice there is a teacher support collection.
