AQA 2016 New SOW Chemistry Chapter 8 Rates of reaction

AQA 2016 New SOW Chemistry Chapter 8 Rates of reaction

This is an entire lesson based around the new AQA 2016 SOW for chemistry chapter 8 rates and equilibrium. The lesson includes instructions for 3 practical activities and practice exam questions. This lesson has been produced for a foundation group (low ability group) and will therefore need editing for higher sets.

AQA Combined Science Trilogy - Chemistry Whole Unit 4 - Chemical Changes

AQA Combined Science Trilogy - Chemistry Whole Unit 4 - Chemical Changes

This pack includes 61 files of powerpoints, worksheets and homeworks (including mark schemes) for every lesson in unit 4 Chemical changes for AQA Combined Science Trilogy Chemistry. It's finally here, and I'm very proud of this resource pack! I've held off on publishing until the quality was right, and now it's finally ready to go live. The quality of the formatting/animation is second to none on TES. TES SAYS IT'S 14 FILES, IT'S NOT IT'S 61, MANY ARE IN A ZIP FOLDER! Lesson order is as follows: 4.4.1.1 - Metal oxides 4.4.1.2 - The reactivity series 4.4.1.2 - Displacement reactions 4.4.1.3 - Extraction of metals and reduction 4.4.2.1 - Reactions of acids with metals 4.4.2.2 & 4.4.2.3 - Acids + Insoluble bases 4.4.2.4 - Neutralisation and the pH scale 4.4.2.6 - Strong vs. weak acids 4.4.3.1 - The process of electrolysis 4.4.3.2 - Molten electrolysis 4.4.3.3 - Using electrolysis to extract metals 4.4.3.4 - Electrolysis of aqueous solutions. That's 12 lessons in total, all jam packed with novel animations, tasks, worksheets, green pen work throughs, and homeworks. Please do review this if you choose to purchase as it really helps my sales. Thanks for supporting my work. Lewis HOW THIS RESOURCE IS ORGANISED: All powerpoints are uploaded directly so browsers can see snippets of each one. Then inside your download there is a zip folder, which contains all powerpoints, checklists, worksheets, homeworks and mark schemes neatly organised in folders. Any queries can be emailed to lewistull@gmail.com.

Boiling - complete lesson (KS3)

Boiling - complete lesson (KS3)

A full differentiated lesson based on the topic of Boiling. The lesson is based upon the Activate 1 (C1.4) SOW but can be used for others. The lesson includes a differentiated worksheet and activity and a practical exercise involving the growing of copper sulfate crystals. The plenary is based on student reflection on their progress against the learning objectives.

States of matter - complete lesson (KS3)

States of matter - complete lesson (KS3)

A full differentiated lesson on the topic of states of matter. The lesson is based on the Activate 1 (C1.2) SOW but can be used for others. The lesson includes a card sort, written activities and a practical exercise where students study the change of state in stearic acid. Animations and timers are included to promote peer/self correction of answers and to promote pace respectively.

Year 8 Science Investigation Skills

Year 8 Science Investigation Skills

Used with my high ability year 8 class - taught separate sciences so this passport is titled Biology, which can obviously be amended. Glued the passport into the front of their books, and added their 'passport photo' in which they drew themselves as scientists. Investigation skills linked heavily to the KS3 National Curriculum. Following a practical students write the data in the table heading, and tick off the skills they have developed/demonstrated. Could enhance this with a red amber green system to show the progress they are making towards a skill. When writing up a practical I encourage them to finish with a reflection in which they link back to these skills. I found previously they struggled to describe skills so this gives them a prompt. Aim to demonstrate each skill through a range of different practicals across the year, such that by then end they may hope to achieve 'expert' status. I produced this to link to the idea of the new A-level CPAC criteria and the idea of demonstrating mastery of practical techniques. With each new book they may receive a new passport.
