An idea borrowed from cheneyagilitytoolkit to help students master the terminology need for the AQA ISA controlled assessments, by an alternative engaging medium.
The customisable word version can be found on my website: www.innovativeeducation.org
This is an excel spreadsheet used to record and monitor progress of Science APP.
There is a separate worksheet for each Assessment Focus (AF) and split into levels 3-8. When a student achieves a criteria you place a y in the cell, this will be highlight in green. If all the criteria are fulfilled for that level the record sheet will show the level. The record workbook will automatically update when a higher level has been obtained. If a student does not quite satisfy the criteria but has attempted it place an i in the cell, this will show up in orange. If there is no evidence for the criteria enter n and the cell turns red.
This enables a clear visual analysis of what has been completed and what areas need to be addressed for both the teacher and student. There are examples on the AF1 worksheet.
Scan each side of the cube with the Augment app (available on both iOS and Android) to reveal the six main molecule shapes. These can then be manipulated to explore the molecule.
Used as a revision tool for any subject.
Before the lesson prepare 49 questions on separate pieces of paper (numbered) along with the answer, one for each square on the board.
In small groups students roll the dice and move forward the number of places shown. In order to stay on this square they have to answer the corresponding question correctly, if they don't they move back to where they came from. The only exception to this is if you land on a snakes head, as this will automatically move them downwards without the need for a question.
eWorksheet on balancing equations. Students have to insert the stoichiometric amounts for each substance. There is instant feedback as to whether the answer is correct or incorrect along with a percentage score.\n\nI usually hide the feedback cells and the score and protect the worksheet so the students submit their answers and I simply unhide the cells and email back their answers and score for them to correct if necessary.
