Literacy in science - including outdoor education opportunities

(0)
A selection of activities using word banks to increase students vocabulary and confidence in using scientific terms. The word banks are great for creative writing and sentence structure. They can also be used as part of a forest school activity in an outdoor classroom or as a homework to encourage students to go outside and discover nature and science around them. The terms range in difficulty to allow the resource to be used for all ages and abilities The resource can be used in class or at home and can be used for short snappy activities e.g. spelling tests or for more extensive projects

Factors that affect the rate of reaction - Outdoor/active learning

(0)
Once you have taught the factors that affect the rate of reaction this is a fun way to embed the knowledge whilst also having a bit of fun. You could also teach it as an introduction to the topic, allowing students to learn from the demonstration as opposed to applying existing knowledge to the demo. Contains plans for both student led and teacher led as well as differentiation ideas Great opportunity to get students out of the classroom and active Equipment required Some outdoor space/ ask to borrow the school gym At least 15 balls (ideally basket balls, footballs or volleyballs) Your students Content covered • How temperature affects the rate of reaction • How pressure affects the rate of reaction • How concentration affects the rate of reaction • How a catalyst affects the rate of reaction Also allows students to visualise particles and gain a greater understanding of what happens when these factors change in terms of reaction particles Suitable for KS3, KS4 and KS5 as they all cover rates of reaction Activity can take 30 minutes to an hour depending on how you run it and whether you discuss the extensions
