Labelling waves

Waves labelling activities for: Very low ability (mostly dyslexic) Year 9/10, waves lesson 1 activity/revision/recapping race game. Laminate or cut and stick to label transverse and longitudinal waves, keywords and examples to remember. Lots of opportunities to verbally stretch and worksheet for stretch/revision. Higher ability waves lesson 1 (CP4a). Labelled waves pictures around the room and equation poster or watch Youtube video by JamJAR - complete anatomy of a wave worksheet.

Refraction step-by-step card sort

Refraction step-by-step card sort

For very low ability Year 10. Refraction Core practical checking they've got the instructions/recapping next lesson/useful reference point that shows protractor placement during the practical. Hopefully good for revision too. Match the descriptions to the pictures and put in order. This is all laminated so the final bit is a fill in the blanks to complete using whiteboard pens first and then stick in and fill in in neat when sure.
