Simplified Periodic Table

(19)
I can never seem to find the right periodic table for my students so have made one ideal for KS3/4. Relative atomic mass is only measured to 1d.p. for elements such as Chlorine. Lanthinoids and Actinoides are ignored. Elements are not given capital letters. UK spelling. Relative atomic mass is shown above the chemical symbol. Includes livermorium and flerovium, moscovium etc. Colour coded groups. Groups 1-8 labelled.

Weathering

(0)
Learning Objectives To describe the three types of weathering, Biological, physical and chemical. To be able to give examples of all three types of weathering. To link the weathering process to the landscape. Use particle diagrams to explain weathering Settler: Starter: Demonstration/Main 1: Draw diagrams to represent the three types of weathering on the board if you are not confident use the textbook. Pupils need to be able to use particle diagrams - in this case particle means rock pieces of any size. Practical: Show the frozen rock breaking demo as an example of freeze thaw. Main 2: Link to the landscapes of Qatar, erratics etc. AFL: Show photos of different types of weathering and ask pupils to identify them

Respiratory system worksheet pack

(12)
A series of worksheets used for teaching respiration. Including labelling the diagram ( I give the pupils page numbers in our dictionaries and they have to figure out the rest themselves). Gap fill exercises and card sorts. Observation notes for a pluck dissection. Lots of challenging resources and pupil led activities designed for an observation lesson.

Quarrying

(0)
Learning Objectives ✤ Describe briefly the uses if limestone and how it is quarried. ✤ Consider and evaluate the environmental, social and economic effects of exploiting limestone and producing building materials from it. ✤ Evaluate the developments in using limestone, cement and concrete as building materials, and their advantages and disadvantages over other materials. Settler: Starter: Demonstration: Practical: Main 1: Limestone cycle folder Main 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehBKETtRImk How does cement work? AFL: Homework Take a look at this article: Worlds largest Open pit Mines (Quarrys) To add extra wow factor I found them on google maps for you: • The biggest iron mine • The deepest mine • The deadliest mine Your task after this lesson will be to prepare yourself for a debate on Quarrying - Is it good or bad? The best pupils will research both sides, and this article will give you great perspective. For example Hibbing Minnesota would not exist at all without the local mine as it provides all the jobs and income for the area. There are lots of positive and negative arguments in the text of the article. You may also want to research easier to read websites such as BBC Bitesize.
AQA C2 Progress Self Assessment forms

AQA C2 Progress Self Assessment forms

(0)
Covers every topic in C2. These google forms are designed to allow you to either print or mail direct to you students and they can self assess what they know against the required specification. When completed either within the email or in an internet browser (works perfectly on mobile devices) the evaluation from the class is sent directly back to you where a breakdown of the responses is built into the form. (responses - summary of responses). **UPDATE** Google form versions can be accessed through the word document. Each form only takes pupils a few minutes to fill out and are much quicker than traditional Red/amber/green self assessments. Ideally complete after the lesson is taught, at the beginning of any revision period and at the end of a revision session.

Igneous Rocks 2

(0)
Learning Objectives Investigate how speed of cooling affects the crystal size of minerals. Link the properties of igneous rocks with where they cooled. Use particle diagrams to explain the difference between intrusive and extrusive Settler: Revision of intrusive and extrusive from previous lesson. Starter: Pupil write their own hypothesis for the practical – discuss what makes a good hypothesis. Fter pupils have done theirs they can asses themselves based on the WAGOLL in the ppt. Demonstration: Practical:/ Main 1: Pupils carry out the salol/lead iodide or stearic acid cooling practical. Main 2: Pupils write an analysis for this experiment, using the mark scheme. Pupils can then peer assess using the markscheme and the WAGOLL. AFL: Ask pupils at the end how giants causeway was made and importantly where? Photographs in ppt.

Sedimentary Rocks

(0)
Learning Objectives Be able to name some sedimentary rocks Explain the processes of weathering, transportation, deposition, sedimentation, cementation Use particle diagrams to explain cementation. Settler: Starter: Demonstration: Demonstration of sedimentary rock sandwich and metamorphic toastie You can do the transportation pipe demo but it isn't very good. Practical: Main 1: Main 2: EITHER: Pupils descibe the sandwich model and explain how it is different. We could compare each others answers to see wether we have learned this OR: Pupils undertake construction company exercise 15 minutes and 5 minutes of discussion at the end. Need to address issues with the vocabulary, many misconceptions come from geography. about weathering and erosion. AFL: Homework Metamorphic rocks worksheet
