Germs and food hygiene - microorganisms, pathogens, contamination, debates and much more

(0)
At least a double lesson worth of content and activities to discuss food hygiene. It can be used in various subjects: SCIENCE (Biology) to link to microorganisms, pathogens and disease (including Semmelweis) FOOD TECH to discuss the importance of handling food correctly and avoiding contamination TUTOR TIME/PSHE to discuss cleanliness Most activities are quick and require minimal preparation (details of milk practical are included in word file) The debate can be spread over to another lesson allowing you to set preparation for homework Extension activities are mentioned in notes sections as are links to further information about topics should you wish to cover a topic in more detail
Revision loyalty card template - to motivate students to revise

Revision loyalty card template - to motivate students to revise

(0)
A simple adaptation of the coffee shop style loyalty cards. Add your school logo to the first page and print them out double sided, multiple per page to make them credit card size. The students name is written in the box at the top and the teacher signs each little book every time the student attends a revision session. We found them to be a great incentive for students to attend sessions. Once the card is complete the student placed it in a collection box and we organised a prize draw every half term/term (depending on the amount of sessions scheduled) Prizes included Amazon gift cards and stationary/supplies to help with revision and exam preparation

OCR A level/year 2 Module 5.1-5.2.6 Assessment with self-assessment

(0)
A challenging 71 mark assessment covering the first part of module 5 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

Revision checklist for OCR A level chemistry

(0)
A quick activity that could start revision or be used from the start of the year to allow students to quickly monitor their progress. I set students different topics as part of their independent work and have reference copies of the mark schemes in my lab for them to use once they have completed the questions It is a good way to monitor and motivate independent work as well as remind students of the volume of content they need to know for their final exams.

Careers activity to inform students about different industries and jobs

(0)
An activity designed to encourage students to learn about different career paths. Students should learn about various occupations and what the role involves as well as discuss the link between the job and a current news topic. Resources: Cards with a selection of careers and small summary/job description 5 current news articles in printer friendly format NB: Not all occupations can be related to each article but the activity should promote discussion and open students eyes to a selection of different career paths. Extension: Add more occupations Ask students to provide the article for the next lesson (to encourage an interest in current affairs) Can be completed as a regular tutor time activity or as part of a careers lesson Promotes thinking outside the box, discussion, research, collaborative thinking and application of knowledge.

How useful is my library - an activity to allow students to get to know their school/public library

(0)
Can be used at the start of the year as a lesson in the library or as a homework to encourage students and parents to use their local library. The activity is made up of a series of questions which the students can find the answers to all over the library or from the librarian. It should encourage them to explore the facilities available and allow them to feel confident using the library. The task is independent and students can keep the booklet once complete for reference Both files have the same content, the only difference is that the booklet should print as a booklet if you select double sided when printing.

Adapt and survive treasure hunt starter

(0)
Suitable for KS2/KS3 and KS4 Biology/Science Activity; -Print out the words and cut them out separately. -Hide them around the classroom/outside space -Students have to come in and try and find one of each word (4 in total) - they must leave any duplicates where they are for other students to find There are not enough of each word for every student so only some students will ‘survive’ Depending on how the students find the words you could discuss competition/survival of the fittest/Adaptation/could they survive with the resources they have? It is great fun and really gets the energy up for the start of the lesson plus the students will learn about 4 things living organisms require to survive

The skills on the front page are linked to Doddle skills (https://www.doddlelearn.co.uk/app/login) However please feel free to remove the codes to make them generic. I have aimed the booklet at year 9 however the activities are transferable across KS3 and KS4 The activities should support students through their science education and help them to get used to terminology they will need for the required practicals at GCSE and A level

(0)
A method for making sherbet in the classroom There is opportunity for design and creativity to design packaging and a name for their sherbet which could be used as a cross curricular opportunity with the DT/Art department or as part of your schools STEM development. I have included a small section of food hygiene but please ensure all equipment is clean (I borrow equipment from the food tech department) A bit of fun but also a link to Chemistry in real life and encourages students to think about the reactions happening around them. Can be used for all ages

IR,Mass Spec and enthalpy application activity

IR,Mass Spec and enthalpy application activity

(0)
AS/A level Chemistry actvity with accompanying lesson plan A problem solving lesson plan applying students knowledge of combustion, enthalpy, infrared spectroscopy and mass spectrometry to a situation. A fictitious company 'Blue Bird Motoring' are looking for a new fuel to use in their new car design to beat the land speed record. The students have to work in groups to work out what each fuel is and then use the data provided to work out which fuel would be most efficient (maths skills). Students must then write a full report back the company (literacy) detailing everything they have found out. My students were thoroughly engaged and there are a few red herrings in there to confuse them and ensure they check their work. The graphs can be a little hard for them to interpret so they need to use all the other information to help them reach an answer. i would suggest giving students a double lesson to complete all aspects of the task. Applicable to both new specification and old specification OCR and possibly AQA

Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) Topics covered: Calculating rates of reaction (including an activity on data analysis and practical skills to support the students required practical studies) Factors which affect the rate of reaction Collision theory and activation energy Catalysts As this PP is smaller than some others I have included the activity as part of the price so there is no need to download it separately. I hope to have covered the entire year 11 course for the new specification (biology, Chemistry and Physics) by summer 2017 so please keep checking for more resources. I will also be making assessments to go alongside the resources ready for September
