Astronomy Edexcel 1.1 --> 1.5

A lesson about an hour long. It covers the important definitions in Edexcel Astronomy 1.1 to 1.5, It recaps the seasons from KS3 and discusses the key definitions Onedefinition from the spec is left off which is the Prime Meridian. That is covered in a seperate lesson. It comes with two differentiated worksheets which can be purchased separately: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/astronomy-and-the-earth-11747898 https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/seasons-worksheet-11738104

Weathering physical, chemical, biological. Erosion. interactive notebook foldable

Weathering physical, chemical, biological. Erosion. interactive notebook foldable

Students can colour and create an interactive resource that they can stick in exercise books. The flaps lift up to show the effects of either physical, chemical or biological weathering. Students can then describe the process under the flap. Also including is a worksheet to assess knowledge and a teacher guide which contains photos of the finished products.

GCSE Physics Concepts - All Topics on the new AQA Physics Specification 8463, 181 Slides

GCSE Physics Concepts - All Topics on the new AQA Physics Specification 8463, 181 Slides

This PowerPoint covers all topics in the new AQA Physics Specification as shown; The Particle Model of Matter: Slides 3-17 Energy and Energy Transfer: Slides 18 - 40 Forces: Slides 41 - 64 Forces and Motion: Slides 65 - 92 Space Physics: 93 -101 Energy and Electricity: Slides 102 - 130 Waves: Slides 131 - 153 Magnetism and Electromagnetism: Slides 154 - 167 Nuclear Physics: Slides 168 - 181 This resource can be used as a supportive resource for teachers, a basis for lessons, a source of relevant infomation/images or a tool for learning. All equations come with a breakdown of SI units and an explanation, along with an example of how to apply the equation. All Equations are formatted with Microsoft Equations Editor. This resource is designed to assist teachers who do not specialise in the subject of GCSE Physics. I have written the slides in a consistent, easy to understand format which I believe will explain the key concept as well as show how to apply equations. Key words and equations are highlighted and explained. All images are either made by myself or taken from Googles advanced image search under the heading ‘free to use or share, even commercially’. I believe this resource will provide a fundamental understanding of GCSE physics along with relevant resources for teaching the topic.

Life cycle of a star

Life cycle of a star

Lesson looking at the life cycle of a star. Could be used with many different year groups. I printed out a blank version of slide 17 for the students to fill out as I went through the stages during the lesson. Learning Objectives: Describe the life cycle of our star Explain how heavy elements are formed Explain why different stars can go through different stages in their lifetimes

The Big Bang Theory TV Series Wordsearch Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

The Big Bang Theory TV Series Wordsearch Starter Settler Activity Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'The Big Bang Theory'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Mythbusters Video Questions: NASA Moon landing (22 Question Total)

Mythbusters Video Questions: NASA Moon landing (22 Question Total)

Video guide questions for the Mythbusters episode: Moon landing Hoax. Great to keep the students focused. Word for word from video. Link to stream episode online as well. Key included. Standards: (i) To develop a rich knowledge of science and the natural world, students must become familiar with different modes of scientific inquiry, rules of evidence, ways of formulating questions, ways of proposing explanations, and the diverse ways scientists study the natural world and propose explanations based on evidence derived from their work. (ii) Scientific investigations are conducted for different reasons. All investigations require a research question, careful observations, data gathering, and analysis of the data to identify the patterns that will explain the findings. Descriptive investigations are used to explore new phenomena such as conducting surveys of organisms or measuring the abiotic components in a given habitat. Descriptive statistics include frequency, range, mean, median, and mode. A hypothesis is not required in a descriptive investigation. On the other hand, when conditions can be controlled in order to focus on a single variable, experimental research design is used to determine causation. Students should experience both types of investigations and understand that different scientific research questions require different research designs. This lesson is student-centered meaning: --it allows you to become a facilitator --happier teachers --happier students --happier administrators

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

Shadows - Game, Vocabulary and Visual Story Prompts + 31 Fun Teaching Activities For The Classroom

You could look at it directly as a presentation and discuss the different shadows being shown in each of the photos. I have collected together some of my best teaching resources about shadows and I think they would make a lovely lesson. There is the game of guess the shadow, followed by reviewing the key words about shadows and a creative writing task to complete. In addition, I have added a teacher guide which explains how to complete another 31 different fun tasks using these resources. You could print off and laminate the photos to make an interesting, eye-catching set of story prompts. The students could also take five of the laminated photos and create them into a story . The photos could also be used as prompts for creative writing, factual writing or descriptive writing.
