Welcome to my shop!! I have taught in an inner London school for 6 years and been Head of Department for the last 3. I not only produce science specific resources but also cross-curricular projects and science literacy resources. I hope you find something useful and your students enjoy the activities!

Self-assessment activity for OCR A level Chem Practice paper - Set 1, paper 1

(0)
Designed to accompany OCR Chemistry Practice paper - Set 1 H432/01 Periodic table, elements and physical chemistry The self assessment sheet breaks down each question by topic so students can quickly see which topics they are confident in and which topics require further work. I use the self-assessments in a similar way to PLCs and ask the students to keep them in their notes to refer to as a starting point for revision

Inheritance, variation and evolution powerpoint and worksheet

(0)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Biology module 4.6.1 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) I print the worksheets out 6 to a page to save on paper and challenge the students to finish one before coming to get the next and set a timer. Each problem only takes a couple of minutes and the students can challenge themselves to complete as many as they can in the given time. Alternatively they can be displayed and students can work through them independently or on the board as a class. The problems get more complex as they go on and ensure students use the key terms and definitions they should have learned from the Power Point. Topics covered: Sexual and asexual reproduction Meiosis DNA and the genome Genetic inheritance Inherited diseases Sex determination Genetic crosses and Punnett squares

Forces and Motion Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.4)

(0)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.4 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging.

I will also be making assessments to go alongside the resources ready for September

Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos, Halloween SCIENCE based activities

(0)
We all love celebrating Halloween but we don't often know why Halloween is celebrated. These resources cover some of he historical aspects of Halloween and El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead). The activities are linked to areas of various science curricula but is on the whole a cross-curricular resource for use around October 31st/November 1st. Suitable for all ages as you can select appropriate activities for your age group The topics covered include: The history of the Day of the Dead, Halloween and All Saints Day Ofrenda and the classical elements, earth, wind, fire and water Marigolds and their significance (plant dissection) The monarch butterfly and its significance (life cycle of a butterfly) The cyclical nature of agriculture (intensive farming, organic farming, hydroponics etc.) Each resource has multiple activities including basic discussion tasks and more detailed research based tasks. Where possible I have added ideas for alternative ways to carry out the activity in-case you wish to use it as a tutor time activity or whole lesson plan I hope this to be a multi-national resource as we all celebrate in different ways and our beliefs and traditions are all influenced by different historical events.

Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5

(0)
A very simple PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.5 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. The resource is free as it is so small and basic. the PPs covering the rest of the course are more detailed and cover larger parts of the spec. Momentum is a Higher tier only topic so thought I would do it as a stand alone PP.

Literacy activity for the changing atom

(0)
Information about the key scientists involved in the changing atom. it is downloaded from various sources on the internet and I ask students to read about a particular scientist and highlight the key points. As a class we then build the history of the atom using the information and any prior knowledge they may have.

Reversible reactions, equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle PP and activity

(1)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Chemistry module 5.6.2 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The activity is to support the powerpoint and can be a whole class, group task or independent task (answers are provided). I have included some application questions to help students to link prior learning and extend understanding as well as help them to think outside the box. The PP is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) Topics covered: Reversible reactions Energy changes and reversible reactions Equilibrium Effect of changing conditions on equilibrium (HT) Effect of changing concentration (HT) Effect of temperature (HT) Effect of pressure (HT)

Classroom expectations activity

(0)
To be used at the start of the year or whenever you feel your class need a reminder about how to behave in your classroom. The resource provides some ideas on classroom rules but essentially encourages the students to come up with their own rules with you in order to share the responsibility. I use it when I start working with a new class, at the start of each term and refer back to it at any point I feel the students need reminding. Keeping a uniform Power Point keeps consistency.

Bonding misconceptions lesson for AS/A level Chemistry

(0)
Interactive lesson covering common misconceptions in bonding between molecules and atoms. (Intermolecular, ionic, covalent, giant covalent, metallic) Students start by self-assessing their knowledge Teacher hands out a misconception to each student Students have 10 minutes to work out how to explain the misconception to the class Each student then explains his misconception to the class and answers questions from their peers Students make notes throughout Students then re-assess themselves following the mini tutorials You can provide molymods/A3 paper etc. to help them explain, I also suggest they illustrate it on the board.
