9 Christmas songs for starter activities for physics, biology and Chemistry

9 Christmas songs for starter activities for physics, biology and Chemistry

3 for each science. Songs that I have used for starter activities so the students to then either write their own Christmas song (KS3) or to write quiz questions on the topic (with a Christmas theme) to test their fellow students at the end of the lesson. Each song has 2 activities where the students have to sing the missing words (if they don't want to sing the whole thing) and each song has some check questions. objective: subject knowledge differentiation: all songs differentiated to at least 2 levels of difficulty; physics calculation questions come with 2 levels of hint there is a recording of each song embedded in the slides - please excuse my singing and feel free to delete this part

Atoms and the Periodic Table 3D Interactive PowerPoint

Atoms and the Periodic Table 3D Interactive PowerPoint

his PowerPoint is visually engaging for your students. It contains over 41 slides that is enticing and really does keep your students focused throughout each lesson. I focus on the educational theory of engaging student’s utilizing the best instructional practices for the diverse learning style of the different schools of thought. This PowerPoint makes learning fun with a constructivist approach. Each slide is interactive. It contains embedded videos while the content is displayed. It also contains audio clues for students to stay focused as they take notes during each slide.

Generic choice of differentiated tasks for independent learning

Generic choice of differentiated tasks for independent learning

This resource is designed to be used during the main part of a lesson for any topic. It is a power point slide which shows the students colour coded tasks. Students can choose a task, tasks can be allocated according to ability, or students can progress through the tasks. The teacher can circulate around the room and assess students as required. The only resources needed are a text book or information on the topic and an exam question and mark scheme. The plenary can be to use questions and answers written by the students during the lesson to test the class. This can be used repeatedly for any topic and is great for observed lessons.

Chemistry Christmas songs: thermal decomposition; energetics and the Haber Process

Chemistry Christmas songs: thermal decomposition; energetics and the Haber Process

3 Christmas songs that I have used as a starter. complete with activities where the the students have to sing the missing words (even if they don't want to sing the whole thing) and check questions to check knowledge learnt. objective: subject knowledge differentiation: 2 of the songs activities come in 2 levels of difficulty; thermal decomposition and energetics songs could be used for KS3 or GCSE ideas for use: use a song as a starter and then the students are to create their own Christmas song based on the topic (or completely different topics, if you prefer), to be performed at the end of the lesson - KS3 are pretty good at this, GCSE tend to be shier. alternative (with GCSE in mind): students to make a quiz on the topic of the song to quiz other students at the end of the lesson. All questions must have a Christmas theme, e.g. Rudolf wants to re-paint his nose. Which salts of iron (III) could he use to make sure it wouldn't wash away in the rain (assuming he is resistant to iron toxicity)?

Christmas zombie invasion ! Great fun Christmas activities for your class as they try to save Xmas.

Christmas zombie invasion ! Great fun Christmas activities for your class as they try to save Xmas.

This is a very entertaining, complete and ready to use, Christmas lesson full of fun activities. It also includes a fully scaffolded activity where students build and fire simple catapults made from lolly (popsicle) sticks. This is done in the classroom (no need to go outside). You do NOT need to know how to build the catapult, the lesson carefully guides students so they can do it with or without your help ! A story about an invasion of zombie Santas is told. Christmas is in jeopardy! The learners have to try to defeat the zombie horde, find a cure for the infected and save Christmas. All instructions are included and the lesson teaches the learners almost automatically, any of us can give this fun and imaginative lesson. How can we stop the zombie horde? How do we cure the zombies turning them back into people? Can your class save Christmas? The length of the lesson is very flexible depending on your needs. There are activities you can miss out and there is also a Christmas cracker based extension you can add in. So, the lesson can easily last anywhere between 0.5 hours and 1.5 hours depending on your requirements. This lesson gets the learners out of their seats, keeps them happy, focused and engaged as they work in teams building and creating. There’s nothing like zombies to capture the imagination of students! It's a great lesson that teachers of any subject can use with all ages from 6 to 16 and it won't go out of date (like a quiz might) so you can use it for years to come, which makes it excellent value at this price ! As well as being great fun and entertaining it is also educational and includes: literacy, numeracy, SMSC, team working skills, questions with answers, physical coordination skills, activities with answers, play ball game, joke telling etc High quality, ready to use lesson - great for teachers of all subjects!
