Edexcel CP3 'Find Someone Who...' Activity

Edexcel CP3 'Find Someone Who...' Activity

Revision activity for the CP3 unit in the new Edexcel Combined Science GCSE (9-1). The idea of the activity is that they need to get all the questions answered on their sheet working cooperatively with the rest of class, with each person only being able to contribute one answer to each worksheet. I also allowed them to ask me to answer one question but could also be done independently amongst the students.

AQA Physics Formulae Revision Cards

AQA Physics Formulae Revision Cards

Designed for students to use to revise the formulae for the AQA P1 and P2 papers. Designed to be printed as double sided cards. The front has the equation, symbols and units and the back has two questions on it. The first requires students to simply substitute numbers into the equation. The second question on each card is more difficult to solve, usually requiring the formula to be rearranged or units converting.

Science end of year quiz

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don���t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.

Lighting Audit

Lighting Audit

In this lesson students complete a whole school lighting audit with the aim of de-lamping classrooms. Students use a lux meter to identify over-lit areas of the school and also manually count the types of lights used. Using their real world data, students make key recommendations on how energy use could be reduced at their school.

How Do Solar Panels Work?

How Do Solar Panels Work?

This lesson is designed for a flipped classroom, where students learn new content by watching a video in their own time. This strategy provides the opportunity for students to build their knowledge, attitudes and values by themselves, thereby freeing up class time for hands-on work. Students watch a clip that helps them to understand solar energy use within political and social contexts.
