Misconceptions In Science UPDATED

Stop Press: I have produced a CPD package from this booklet and am selling it at a reduced price to get some feedback on it.
https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/science-misconceptions-cpd-12237121

This resource is a booklet with lists of misconceptions, strategies for overcoming them, and quizzes for ascertaining main misconceptions in Forces, Electricity etc. It is research based, but written in a practical way and focuses on the use of models, analogies, CASE, interviewing and other strategies.
The most useful part I believe is the lists of misconceptions and a comprehensive index of keywords to help you find the common misconception for that topic/keyword.
Thank you for making it is one of my most downloaded resources.

Update: Sorted out the problems with the index and added some more misconceptions on the topics infection and ecology.

A free activity to identify misconceptions in Forces is here:
