Noise Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Synonyms Sound Science English

Noise Wordsearch Puzzle Sheet Keywords Settler Starter Cover Lesson Synonyms Sound Science English

Wordsearch Puzzle sheet on the theme of ‘Noise’. 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!

AQA GCSE Music Activity - AoS2: Popular Music (Unfamiliar Music)

I have created this resource as an activity for pupils to help increase their knowledge for the AoS2 Popular Music Component 1 assessment. This is the Unfamiliar Music section of the test You may wish to work through this as a class or use as a homework tool for pupils. The booklet is 16 pages long so is not a one lesson activity. The booklet contains research activities along with a variety of listening activities. I have split the booklet into 4 section which match the AQA specifications for this AoS2. They are: Music of Broadway 1950s to 1990s. Rock music of 1960s and 1970s. Film and computer gaming music 1990s to present. Pop music 1990s to present. Each listening activity will require a link to YouTube. I have given the key phrases pupils should search along with a thumbnail of the video to ensure they pick the correct video.
