KS3 Unit 8L Physics- Space  (8Lb seasons, c Magnetic Earth, d gravity and e beyond the solar system)

KS3 Unit 8L Physics - Space and Beyond the solar system

Aimed for High-Middle ability Year 8 but can be adapted for low/middle ability if required (Higher and lower slides)
There are several low ability slides available in the powerpoint

Further to this the lessons can also be split into two for each section - but due to time constraints and a very high ability class I was able to get through it all in 4 lessons rather than 8 lessons

LESSON 1: Day and Night + seasons
Objectives:
To understand what causes day and night
To explain why there are seasons
To explain the change in day length and the height of the sun

LESSON 2: Magnetic Earth
Objectives:
To state what is meant by a magnetic field
To explain why Earth has a magnetic field
To explain how a compass can be used together with maps for navigation

LESSON 3: Weight, mass and gravity
Objectives:
To state the meaning of the term gravitational field strength
To explain the difference between weight and gravity
To use gravitational field strength to calculate weights

LESSON 4: Beyond the system
Objectives:
To state the meaning of the term gravitational field strength
To explain the difference between weight and gravity
To use gravitational field strength to calculate weights

Targeted towards specification

All extension questions available on each slide
Answers all underneath each slide
Support also available where necessary
AfL sections and mini quizzes
Reducing the need for photocopying

Enjoy !!!
