As a result of engaging with the lesson, the students will.

Learning objectives
know, understand and do

Communicate scientific ideas and information for a


particular purpose, including constructing evidencebased arguments and using appropriate scientific
language, conventions and representations
(ACSIS208)

Be able to explain how chemical reactions are used to


produce particular products and how different factors
influence the rate of reactions.
Be able to identify alternative explanations for
findings and explain any sources of uncertainty.
Be able to evaluate the validity and reliability of
claims made in secondary sources with reference to
currently held scientific views.
Be able to construct evidence-based arguments and
select appropriate representations and text types to
communicate science ideas for specific purposes.

Students will understand


The basics in electrochemistry of metals
How rust occurs around us
Students will know
How to how to write the equation of rust
the process of rust

Essential Questions
open ended - the Big
Idea
Lesson 1 - single

Lesson 2 - double

Methods of preventing rust


The chemical activity of metals
Students will be able to
Work collaboratively in pairs
Distribute work between each other equally and
communicate effectively.
Plan and execute their poster design
Find quality secondary sources
Present findings on a poster
All metals rusts but some happen more frequently than
others. So how can we prevent these metals from rusting?
Lessons
Learning intention: Pre-assessment
Brain storming activity:
Teacher introduces the unit by working on a preassessment task drawing on their current
understanding of rust
Students are to answer the following question
independently
o What is rust?
Students work in groups are then shown pictures of
various items rusting and are to discuss what they
think rust is (write answers on butchers paper)
o Guiding questions
What is rust?
Is it bad?
How does it occur?
Does it need anything but metal to
happen?
Students then answer the question independently
o Have your understanding of rust changed? If
yes, what is rust now?
Group discussion with the class on what they think
what rust is
o write student answers and thoughts on board to
develop the basis of what rust is and how it
occurs.
Learning intention: Content knowledge about rust
Through PowerPoint presentation:
Describe the process of rust to students showing
equation.
Describe the impact of rust on civilisation and the
importance of preventing rust from occurring (e.g. on
buildings, boats, cars, etc.)
o Students answers questions
Demonstration:

Lesson 3 - singe

Lesson 1 - single

Lesson 2 - double

Demonstrate 2 methods which rust can be prevented


on iron and show results
o protective layering (painting)
o Sacrificial metal (placing a more reactive metal
next to iron)

Teacher sourced digital content:


Students are to access the website
o http://www.capital-painting.com/factors-thataffect-the-rate-of-corrosion/
Create a mind map showing the environmental factors
that promote the rate of corrosion on steel structures.
Learning intention: Assignment - Investigate rust prevention
method and present on poster
Students work in pairs to create a poster on a rust
prevention method
Students consolidate their selection with teacher and
then begin research using laptops
o Some secondary sources provided
o Provide laptop trolley for students
Learning intention: Assignment - Investigate rust prevention
method and present on poster
Students continue working on their posters
Check on student progress
Learning intention: Assignment - Investigate rust prevention
method and present on poster
Due date today, students must finish off poster today
unless extension provided

Poster Assignment:
Introduction:
Now that you have learnt a little about corrosion and looked at some of
the methods used in corrosion prevention. You are to investigate this
further. You are to partner up with someone and pick one of the following
corrosion prevent techniques (listed below) that industries use to minimise
the effects of corrosion.
You and your partner are to present your findings on a poster.
