Group 1: The alkali metals

Group 1: The alkali metals

This is a detailed and engaging lesson presentation which focuses on the properties of the elements found in group 1 of the Periodic Table, the alkali metals. Students are challenged throughout the lesson to be able to link their observations of the reactions to the properties. Once they have learnt that the reactivity increases as they move down the group, time is taken to go over this in detail so that students can explain why sodium is more reactive than lithium (and so on) in terms of electron configuration. Progress checks are embedded throughout the lesson so that students have the opportunity to assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK) but is suitable for younger students who may be carrying out a project on the Periodic Table

Extracting aluminium

Extracting aluminium

A fully resourced lesson, which includes differentiated worksheets, and guides the students through the process of extracting aluminium. There are close links throughout the lesson to the reactivity series and electrolysis so that the students are able to understand how the knowledge of all of these is brought together. Students will meet cryolite and recognise why this is used in the process and will finish off by writing half equations to show the products at the electrodes. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK)

Extracting metals

Extracting metals

A fully-resourced lesson, which includes a lesson presentation (49 slides) and associated worksheets and guides students through the topic of extracting metals. The main focus of the lesson is the extracting of the metals (from their oxides) that fall below carbon in the reactivity series. Students will see how the metal oxides are reduced in order to form the required metal. Some time is taken to briefly look at the extraction of aluminium from aluminium oxide but if a lesson on the extraction of a particular metal is sought, then please look at my additional resources which cover iron and aluminium in greater detail. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK)

Redox reactions

Redox reactions

A short lesson which includes a lesson presentation (27 slides) and a hint worksheet and looks at redox reactions that involve oxygen and electrons. When focussing on oxygen, the lesson uses the example of extracting metals by reacting them with carbon to show how the metal is reduced and the carbon is oxidised. Key terminology such as reducing agents are also discussed. The important topic of electrolysis is used when teaching about the redox reactions that involve electrons and students are reminded about half equations. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK) but is suitable for other ages

Writing half equations for electrolysis

Writing half equations for electrolysis

A fully-resourced lesson which includes a lesson presentation (24 slides) and a worksheet which is differentiated so that students can judge their understanding of the topic of writing half equations for electrolysis and access the work accordingly. The lesson uses worked examples and helpful hints to show the students how to write half equations at both the cathode and anode. Time is taken to remind students about the rules at the electrodes when the electrolyte is in solution so that they can work out the products before writing the equations. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 years old in the UK) but could be used with older students.

Electrolysis of molten salts

Electrolysis of molten salts

A detailed lesson which includes a lesson presentation (52 slides) and an associated worksheet that goes through the basis of electrolysis and then focuses on the examples when the electrolyte is a molten salt. The lesson has been designed to move in small steps with regular progress checks so that key details are fully understood. It begins by ensuring that students understand which ions are attracted to which electrode. The lesson then looks at how electrons are either gained or lost at the electrodes and this is related to redox reactions as well. Helpful hints and exam question tips are given throughout to aid students with this commonly assessed topic. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds in the UK) but could be used with both older and younger students

The Transition metals

The Transition metals

An engaging lesson which looks at the properties of the Transition metals of the Periodic Table and ultimately compares these properties against other metals, such as the Alkali metals. Through the use of a range of motivating tasks and quiz competitions, students will learn that the transition metals form coloured compounds, have a number of ion charges, act as catalysts and are harder, stronger but less reactive than group 1. This lesson has been written for GCSE students (14 - 16 year olds) but is suitable for younger students who are looking at the patterns and trends in the Periodic Table

Reactivity of Metals (full lesson inc Practical) - KS3 Chemistry

Reactivity of Metals (full lesson inc Practical) - KS3 Chemistry

This is a very simple KS3 Chemistry lesson to introduce the concept of reactivity and the reactivity series of metals. Resource includes a very self explanatory powerpoint (including a technician list for ordering practical equipment), an introduction to the reactivity series plus a straight forward practical for students to deduce the order of reactivity of 4 metals to help fill in the gaps of the reactivity series they have been given. I have produced a practical hand out with a simple equipment list and method plus a pre-drawn table to help students get started straight away or feel free to get them designing their own if you wish. Finally students will need to write brief conclusions regarding their results and then move on to some higher order prediction making for other metals based on their results. Download it, open it and it’s ready to go! (The only prep you’ll need to do is ordering your practical kit!)

Electronic Configuration and Periodic Table (full lesson) - GCSE Chemistry/ Combined Science (9-1)

Who? For people teaching the new Chemistry/ Combined Science GCSE (2016). Also for those of you requiring a straight forward and simple lesson on Electronic Configuration of atoms and how this links to the Periodic Table. This lesson has been made with reference to the new Edexcel Specification but could easily be applied to AQA, OCR etc. What will you get? This is a whole lesson on one powerpoint. A starter task to get students thinking about what the periodic table tells us already, Learning objectives, worked examples with answers, class tasks with answers (all written in the ‘notes’ section of the powerpoint) a worksheet (attached) and an exam style question to really make sure they have met the learning objectives. This lesson is ready to go but still offers you flexibility in terms of delivery. Everything you need is here as powerpoint slides which can be printed as ‘worksheets’ if needed. The attached extra worksheet is already in my shop as a separate resource so in effect is a free resource to accompany the lesson.
