The Greenhouse Effect

The Greenhouse Effect

This lesson is run as a competition between small groups of students. The lesson encourages students to use a series of challenges and clues to work out for themselves the key ideas about the greenhouse effect. The lesson is structured with a starter, a session gathering the main ideas and then time for students to put together their own explanation. It is aimed at less academic GCSE students but would also work well for keystage 3 students and more able GCSE students who could complete it more quickly.

AQA Talking about equations

AQA Talking about equations

Thought this might help some people. Remembering the formulas will be the key to passing the physics exams. I have written out the formulas in words i.e. "The speed of a wave depends on the frequency and the wavelength. If either is bigger then the speed is faster." This can stimulate different thought processes especially if spoken aloud. Good starter and certainly can't hurt.

Physics of Santa Claus

Physics of Santa Claus

This is an activity for last week of term, where you want to add a little festive theme. starter : Clip of Santa take off in air Ask students what forces are acting on him? Main : Print the physics points on cards and distribute to students. They can read out the points, a discussion can follow. students can bullet point these on their Santa sleigh page. Enjoy

The Solar System and Beyond

The Solar System and Beyond

This is a bundle based around helping students get to grips with the vastness of space and the key vocabulary that goes with it. To get students thinking, there's a starter where students give their opinions by placing themselves on an imaginary line . Their position on the line indicates how much they agree or disagree with a series of statements. The sizing activity quite literally paces out the solar system to scale and brings home the true distance between the Earth and Moon. There are then three worksheets designed to promote thinking and consolidate what students have learnt
