Six splendid puzzles to display on your interactive whiteboard. These make great lesson starters and are an essential part of a teacher's toolkit. You probably already know the River Crossing puzzle. The puzzles are animated to make them very attention grabbing. No printing is needed; all the puzzles should be solvable without the need to write anything down. Very engaging and fun.
Thoroughly tried, tested and recommended. This lesson uses carefully chosen examples with picture representations as well as chemical formulae. There are two differentiated worksheets (embedded in in the PowerPoint) with answers and a plenary quiz.
216 multiple choice questions for A2 AQA Physics A-level. These questions have carefully presented student-friendly solutions. The questions mostly originate from the legacy AQA 2010-2016 A-level and are completely compatible with the current specification.
Includes an Engine Cycles interactive eBook for free.

This lesson is a favourite of mine. The topic may not be on an examined syllabus anymore but works as an excellent extension or gain time lesson. Contains a lot of big ideas but broken up with short activities. Differentiated question sheets are embedded in the powerpoint. Ofsted judged this lesson with my year 9s as"outstanding" in every area.
The pdf file allows students to revise the AQA GCSE Physics Energy topic. Either in the classroom or at home this is a great lesson (and potentially relaxing for the teacher) Students use this pdf file on iPads/ tablets/ laptops. The emphasis is on student independence. The file contains 278 hyperlinked pages with 66 questions.
The Adobe Acrobat Reader is optimal on “single page view”, Outlook and OneNote are inferior. Performance will vary through different apps and platforms.

Remote students could let you know when they get a sticker - you can use this to track their independent work.
If they send you other bogus stickers to you (°C Celsius, F Fahrenheit, K Kelvin) then they are simply scrolling through slides and not correctly answering questions.

A 60 question multiple choice test which can be done securely for remote teaching. Covers mechanics, electricity, waves, materials, particles and quantum.
The test is conducted through Socrative. Advice on a number of crafty security measures to avoid cheating is included.
The questions are selected for the AQA syllabus and aren’t in the public domain (as of June 2020). The test could be used with other syllabuses with only small modifications.
Included are a set of worked answers on a pdf so students can work through tricky questions in their post-test review.
Also included is a practice mini test (eight questions) to use in the preceding lesson so students can get to grips with the format.
With this resource, you will save hours of work in planning and marking.
The eight question practice test is available for free:
A fun and competitive interactive whiteboard game in which two teams take it in turns to match tiles. The game automatically scores and has a built in timer in the event of a draw. Students really enjoy the competitiveness. This game won a Microsoft innovation award. Very strongly recommended for all ages.
This template allows you to make your own interactive whiteboard games. Making your own game should take about five minutes.
A bonus matching pairs pictures template is included so you can include pictures and diagrams in your games.
Nineteen exemplar Matching Pairs Games are included with editing enabled to let you customise them.
There are many free examples of Matching Pairs Games to try before you buy. Please visit my shop;
A very carefully differentiated lesson on covalent bonding. Starts with a quiz and worked examples. The main task involves students creating molecules and drawing them showing the outer electrons. There are eleven differentiated molecules and answers are included for peer assessment. My class had sufficient molymod molecule kits to work individually.
Newton’s laws are presented using fun and memorable animated images including Wile-e-Coyote and Super Mario. Included here are notes, a multiple choice quiz, a worksheet to use with the pHet interactive and two other illustrative worksheets.
In this collection I have tried to gather attention grabbing resources. Whether you are teaching cheeky monkeys or aloof A-level classes, these are real winners.
The "Matching Pairs Interactive Game" and "Two Team IWB Quiz Game" use the interactive whiteboard in a creative and engaging way.
Ten interactive competitive games on Physics A-level topics. These will make a very welcome break from other less thrilling means of revision.

An editor is separately available to make your own games;
A tried and tested lesson on absorption and emission spectra. Contains a recapping starter, an identifying spectra task and consolidation exercises. By using energy numbers for the levels students engage with the concept much better. Suitable for AQA Combined Science Trilogy 18.104.22.168 or AQA GCSE Physics 22.214.171.124 or A level Chemistry or Physics.
A carefully animated model for current and voltage. Current is represented by soldiers running along wires, voltage is the chocolate bars (energy) they transfer. The presentation contains an entertaining starter, a quiz and worksheets with answers to review learning. I have found the model to be very effective with a huge range of ability levels from year 7 to year 12.
A complete lesson of notes and questions on combining resistors in series and parallel. Very carefully laid out slides - recapping from GCSE, deriving the series and parallel formulae, example calculations and a worksheet with answers provided.
