Lower ability  simplified potato osmosis practical

Suitable for GCSE required practical on osmosis. Intended for students who struggle to read so they can independently put together this practical. It contains practical instructions is diagram form on the worksheet and on the power point. I have simplified it so there are only 3 different salt solutions for them to try. It is differentiated as the instruction sheet and results table worksheet contains questions to answer, but the report sheet has Cloze passages. I have also included a set of results based partly on real results and partly made up. Teachers can use these for students who do not get sensible results. I was trying to get them to work independently . I remembered the old “Science at Work” books aimed at lower ability students full of diagrams illustrating how to do practicals. (This dates me!) They were great for showing the students what to do. This did work for most students when I tried it, but a demonstration would probably work better or a demo and the instructions!
