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

Gravity within Solar Systems (Lesson Observation)

Gravity within Solar Systems (Lesson Observation)

A lesson designed for a more able KS3 group. Exploring gravity in a Solar system. Includes the use of the equation W = M x G Included: Presentation Starter test questions to be completed again at the end. A variety of tasks at different levels. Students to select and work through independently Peer assessment check Challenge Questions to include Literacy, Numeracy and SMSC. Criteria: LO: Understand the forces within the solar system. Describe the trends within the solar systems. Draw and compare the Ptolemy & Kepler model of the solar system. Calculate Gravitational field strength by arranging the relationship between mass, weight and gravity. Formulate Newton's law of universal gravitation

GCSE Physics Xmas QUIZ

GCSE Physics Xmas QUIZ

This lesson presentation (34 slides) and associated worksheet consists of a series of 6 fun quiz rounds which will engage your students at the end of this long term whilst subtly testing their GCSE Physics knowledge. A range of knowledge from across the GCSE specification is tested in rounds such as "The 12 days of Physics Xmas", "Crack the Advent Calendar Code" and "Which Scientist is Santa".

P2 OCR Gateway revision booklet - Forces and Motion

P2 OCR Gateway revision booklet - Forces and Motion

PP can be printed off as a booklet and given to pupils to work through. Or print the slides off separately - each pupil gets a raffle ticket for completing a task - name goes on ticket and put into a pot. Lots of different ways to use this resource! The answers are provided. Would suit higher and foundation pupils (one slide is for higher only - momentum).

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

Physics Christmas song: stopping distances; forces introduction and not on the equation sheet

Physics Christmas song: stopping distances; forces introduction and not on the equation sheet

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. Aimed at GCSE but may be useful for KS3 also - particularly the forces one and the stopping distances one. objective: subject knowledge differentiation: the song activities are in 2 levels of difficulty and the 'not on the equation sheet' questions come with differentiated hints 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)? NOTE: not every single equation is in the equation song - the ones that are not present are in the notes at the bottom of the first slide of the equations sheet song. The alternative activity here is for the students to make the next round that will include the missing equations.

Super Christmas Resource Pack

Super Christmas Resource Pack

Everything you need for those end-of term Christmas lessons:- three quizzes - one aimed at Year 8 Science, one covering new science discovered during 2017, and one unashamedly just about Santa Claus! Also included in this bundle is a chemistry activity for consolidating student understanding of the number of protons in different elements, not to mention a number of picture templates. Although titled 'Maths templates' they could be amended to cover different ideas in science. A bargain bundle!

Weathering and Erosion Activities and Graphic Organizers

Weathering and Erosion Activities and Graphic Organizers

I have put a lot of time trying to make weathering, erosion, deposition, and soil engaging for students. The students love using these handouts to learn this material. This entire package contains ways to increase differentiated instruction for diverse learning styles. These handouts are visual and allow students to put theory into practice through multiple mediums. I have included 3 classroom supplementary activities and a great startup’ and closure game that really helps not only reinforce previously learned material, but reviews and engages students. Students also really love the vocabulary foldables. I use these foldables as a startup activity. i hope you enjoy these activities and graphic organizers. Earth science is as fun as you make it for your students. There is 24 pages of interactive activities contained in this package. This preview only shows a sample of what to expect. Answer keys are included where needed.

Pi Day, Archimedes Activities, Lesson Plans, and Guided Notepacket

Pi Day, Archimedes Activities, Lesson Plans, and Guided Notepacket

“Happy pi Day!” “EUREKA” – I found it! – Archimedes. Archimedes is perhaps one of the greatest Mathematicians and Scientists of all time. Here is a chance to showcase this scientist through multiple mediums. If you are interested in Math, Science, Physics, and Archimedes, it is all contained in this note packet. This educational vehicle contains over 40 pages of a wide-spectrum of embedded activities, supplementary aides, Smart Board Activities, guided notes, and on each page there are ongoing formative assessments. Each page in this note packet has assessment questions that your students can work on in small groups. Also, both the lesson plans and teacher’s guide is included. Everything is contained. This entire note packet is customized to mold to over 30 common core standards. This note packet also focuses on bridging the gap between science and literacy. The content in this note packet contains the life history of Archimedes, his discoveries, principles, and the amazing war machines he invented. Students will actually experience his discoveries as they work to produce and practice using his original ideas. Students will explore through enticing exploratory and discovery activities. Students will be exposed to the following: -How has the life of Archimedes changed the way we do things today? -What are Archimedes primary contributions to math and science? -What are the different types of courses, Archimedes studied as a young child? -Explain how the Archimedean screw works? -How does Archimedes relate to the Leaning Tower of Pisa? -What is the difference between surface area and volume? -How did Archimedes method of exhaustion help him discover pi? -What is the difference between inscribing and circumscribing? -What is the relationship between the sides of a polygon and determining it an area of a circle? -What are different types of areas of a square, triangle, and a rectangle? -What is the difference between volume and buoyancy -How did Archimedes discover water displacement? -What is a scientific theory? -How did Archimedes redefine scientific measurement? -How does a lever work and what is its function? -Explain the difference between the force of effort and the force of resistance? -Explain how Archimedes contributed to the defense of Syracuse? Student Learning Objectives: -Discuss why the significant events that took place during Archimedes life -Explain and discover the new inventions that Archimedes produced -Use guided notes to reinforce reading and decoding skills -Use models and practice working with formulas to put Archimedes theory into practice. -Formatively assess previously learned materials through ongoing assessments
