Extracting metals

Extracting metals

A fully-resourced lesson, which includes a lesson presentation (49 slides) and associated worksheets and guides students through the topic of extracting metals. The main focus of the lesson is the extracting of the metals (from their oxides) that fall below carbon in the reactivity series. Students will see how the metal oxides are reduced in order to form the required metal. Some time is taken to briefly look at the extraction of aluminium from aluminium oxide but if a lesson on the extraction of a particular metal is sought, then please look at my additional resources which cover iron and aluminium in greater detail. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK)

Group 7 - The Halogens

Group 7 - The Halogens

This lesson introduces the halogens. It gives general information into their naming and uses linked to their properties. Using an animation it shows how the covalent bond is formed to allow the Halogens to be diatomic. Students are then lead through a step by step guide to explaining the reactivity of the Halogens with regards to their electrons and distance from nucleus. Displacement is explained using a simple anecdote. The experiment is provided if you wish to attempt this with your students. After explaining / practical there are equations questions to test the students learning. Plenary is exam style questions.

2018 Differentiated Organic Chemistry Revision/DIRT Activity

2018 Differentiated Organic Chemistry Revision/DIRT Activity

This is a lesson in a box - all you need for a great, engaging lesson! The resource is for all GCSE students from grade 1 to grade 8. It includes 2 knowledge organisers from which they answer the questions. The Organic Chemistry tube map question sheet (questions differentiated by the route colour) Tube Map Students are given instructions to get from one underground tube station to another answering questions or doing tasks along the way. Grade 1 - 3 Will use the black and yellow route Grade 4 - 6 will use the Red and yellow route Grade 7 upwards will use the brown and dark blue route (this is shown at the bottom of the worksheet). The activity is highly engaging as students try to navigate a route through stations. Although this works perfectly well as an independent task, students gain much from the discussions and debates around the answers. Your groups will be best set in pairs of similar achievement.

Phytomining (Biological metal extraction)

Phytomining (Biological metal extraction)

A detailed lesson which looks at the biological metal extraction of phytomining. By the end of the lesson, the students will know the organisms involved in the extraction and the key details of the method which includes key terminology like complexing agents. Time is taken to focus on the advantages and disadvantages of this method so that students can formulate a balanced argument if required to do so in an assessment. A second method, bioleaching, is also briefly considered within the lesson This lesson has been designed for those students studying GCSE (14 - 16 year olds)

Diamond and graphite

Diamond and graphite

A fully resourced lesson that includes a lesson presentation (31 slides) and a related newspaper story to allow the students to compare the structure and properties of two allotropes of carbon, diamond and graphite. Students are guided through the structures and then challenged to work out how this relates to their respective properties. Time is taken to focus on the comparison between the two in terms of their ability to conduct electricity. A step by step answer is used to explain why diamond cannot conduct electricity so that students can use this when forming their answer for graphite. This lesson has been designed primarily for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds) where questions comparing these two substances are common but it is suitable for use with younger students too.

AQA C1-C5 Revision Chemistry 1 Paper

A PPT made up of 107 slides to cover the content required for units C1, C2, C3, C4 and C5. The PPT is in the form of a quiz, with answers availble on the slides. There are however a couple of questions without answers. I have planned this for a Triple Science class, however, most of it is suitable for Combined Chemistry. This should take between 2-3 hours to go through. (I am teaching it tomorrow morning prior to the Chemistry exam and have a total of three hours to get through it with my class).

Compound Chemistry Quiz

Compound Chemistry Quiz

Quiz used for a form-time activity with Y7, though it could be used with any group. The answers were around the room on various compound chemistry posters, although you could do this using laptops, with students finding the answers on the compound interest website! 2 of the answers came from the student passports for the group that were stuck on the wall, so you will need to change those questions.
