P2.3 More About Radiation- Global warming

P2.3 More About Radiation- Global warming

This lesson introduces the idea of how the temperature of systems (e.g. the earth and its atmosphere) could be controlled. It then focuses on skills such as graph interpretation to understand how factors such as green house gas emissions from human activity can enhance the green house effect and therefore cause global warming. Lastly, students get to use their creative skills, all their knowledge and understanding covered in the lesson to create a poster to describe and explain the process of global warming.

The Moon - Astronomy Specification or extension

The Moon - Astronomy Specification or extension

This lesson covers what needs to be known about the Moon in Edexcel Astronomy 2.1-2.7. All key definitions are covered and the Lunar phases are used at the end to explain the changing way in which the Moon is perceived. A lunar phases worksheet is included. Tidal locking is then discussed to explain why we only see one side, There are questions for the class to think about. If the Moon is drawn. The lesson should take around 60 -75 minutes. If not, closer to an hour The worksheet can be purchased separately here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/lunar-cycle-worksheet-11736386

Weathering physical, chemical, biological. Erosion. interactive notebook foldable

Weathering physical, chemical, biological. Erosion. interactive notebook foldable

Students can colour and create an interactive resource that they can stick in exercise books. The flaps lift up to show the effects of either physical, chemical or biological weathering. Students can then describe the process under the flap. Also including is a worksheet to assess knowledge and a teacher guide which contains photos of the finished products.

GCSE Physics Concepts - All Topics on the new AQA Physics Specification 8463, 181 Slides

GCSE Physics Concepts - All Topics on the new AQA Physics Specification 8463, 181 Slides

This PowerPoint covers all topics in the new AQA Physics Specification as shown; The Particle Model of Matter: Slides 3-17 Energy and Energy Transfer: Slides 18 - 40 Forces: Slides 41 - 64 Forces and Motion: Slides 65 - 92 Space Physics: 93 -101 Energy and Electricity: Slides 102 - 130 Waves: Slides 131 - 153 Magnetism and Electromagnetism: Slides 154 - 167 Nuclear Physics: Slides 168 - 181 This resource can be used as a supportive resource for teachers, a basis for lessons, a source of relevant infomation/images or a tool for learning. All equations come with a breakdown of SI units and an explanation, along with an example of how to apply the equation. All Equations are formatted with Microsoft Equations Editor. This resource is designed to assist teachers who do not specialise in the subject of GCSE Physics. I have written the slides in a consistent, easy to understand format which I believe will explain the key concept as well as show how to apply equations. Key words and equations are highlighted and explained. All images are either made by myself or taken from Googles advanced image search under the heading ‘free to use or share, even commercially’. I believe this resource will provide a fundamental understanding of GCSE physics along with relevant resources for teaching the topic.
