Magnets are magic! A primary science CLIL / ESL lesson plan on magnetism

Magnets are magic! A primary science CLIL / ESL lesson plan on magnetism

Key information: • Teaching science in English at A1 to A2 level • 45-minute lesson • Student's handout + Teacher's notes • English language support for both teacher and students Rationale: In this lesson, learners read about magnets, steel and iron, then do an experiment to explore and verify basic scientific facts. Through predicting, experimenting, observing and stating observations, learners experience and develop understanding of scientific processes and methods while also expanding their scientific knowledge and conceptual understanding. The lesson encourages learners to become interested in and curious about science concepts while developing their thinking and language skills. Content objectives: To experiment with and observe the force of a magnet on objects which do and don’t contain iron; to predict and confirm predictions about which objects a magnet will attract; to understand that magnets attract iron. Language objectives: To use simple present tense to express scientific facts; to use simple future tense to make predictions; to use 'contains'/'doesn’t contain' to describe the characteristics of an object. These lessons have been designed to support teachers’ and learners’ use of English in the following contexts: • bilingual education • Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) • English as a Medium of Instruction (EMI) • Content-Based Instruction (CBI) • English as a Second Language (ESL) • English as a Foreign Language (EFL).

Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

Practical Science: Reaction Rates and Fair Tests with Bottle Rockets KS2

This resource was developed with Royal Society of Chemistry funding. Its original aim was to support Cub Scout leaders with the Scientist badge. However, it also works really well with KS2 pupils in school. The leaders notes contain a detailed plan for running the activity in class. It is recommended that you read these through and have a test run before doing this is school. You will also need to complete your own Risk Assessment. Its a really exciting hands-on experiment which pupils will be desperate to manipulate for themselves! Pupils will learn about a fair test, reaction rates, states of matter, forces

Year 2 - Science lesson - Forces - Egg drop experiment

Year 2 - Science lesson - Forces - Egg drop experiment

This Year 2 lesson pack looks into 'forces', 'materials' and is cross-curricular with Design and Technology. The children will learn about forces (in particular air resistance) and learn about the force that the ground exerts that causes the egg to break. The children then need to design and wrap the egg in a protective packaging to see which materials are better at doing so.
