This resource consists of a PowerPoint, starter sheet (with the key words, LO's, title and confidence chart) and main task sheet.
It may be useful as an introduction to sound and light. The resources were created for an observed lesson. The three LO's were:
1. To describe amplitude and frequency
2. To explain the transmission, production and reception of sound
3. To compare the speeds of sound and light
Scanned from my sketch book.
This activity is a great way to summarise a topic and challenge pupils on a range of concepts covered. Pupils should write the name of each character, decide whether they agree or disagree with the statement and justify their decision. This can be used to promote pupil discussion in the classroom. The imagery in the middle of the sheet can be used to help pupils make their decisions.
After printing, trim the bottom and side for a perfect fit for pupil exercise books :)
PowerPoint Presentation introducing light and sound.
What is light and sound?
How do they travel?
How are they different?
Save time, increase student interest and review related vocabulary with this bingo game. Full version includes multiple clues for each concept and 25 total bingo cards. No two bingo cards are alike. Each card contains a statement, definition, example, graphic or fill-in-the-blank which corresponds to a clue.
Includes transverse and compression waves, telescopes, microscopes, refraction, reflection, opaque, transparent, translucent, ultrasound, sonar, electromagnetic spectrum, amplitude, wavelength, frequency, concave/convex lenses and more. Markers include graphics which help students visualize concepts.
To make long lasting cards, run on card stock and laminate. It is easy to add in your own clues or even use student generated clues, worksheets or workbooks for additional clues.
Teacher can choose which cards and clues for specific topics or use all the cards for review or introducing a unit to assess student background knowledge.
DIFFERENTIATION NOTE: Card titles vary slightly so the teacher can differentiate instruction by level of difficulty. See directions for a full explanation.
Teaching suggestion: Have students silently or with a partner read over their cards before beginning and allow them to ask questions before starting. Teacher reads the marker chip and students must find their corresponding marker and place it on the appropriate spot. Allow students to mark any square/spot/answer that fits the marker. Some cards contain pictures which might fit multiple concepts. Base your acceptance on their rationale. (The pictures match is not a good rationale.)
When a student has 4 in a row and calls bingo, they must read aloud the marker and square chosen. If they are correct, they win. Clear cards, trade cards (teacher's choice) and play again. If they are incorrect, the first student who raises their hand and corrects the mistake gets to cover any square of their choice as a bonus (promotes listening). Game continues.
A fun and interactive double lesson learning about different camera angles, lighting and sound. Can also be used for revision purposes.
Students learn about a range of different camera angles, lighting choices and their effects. Students also learn the different between diegetic and non-diegetic sound and consider how all of these choices create meaning. Students then apply their learning to independently answer an exam style question before reviewing their learning.

This resource is differentiated by task and also by time to be spent on each.
Red activities = hardest,
Orange = medium demand
Green = easy
The stars represent the time to be spent on each ( I change this depending on the ability of the group/ student e.g. each star represents 2 minutes)
I usually display on the board and students work on A3 or print for lower ability classes.
Could cut up and use as flashcards
A 30 page workbooklet for lower secondary science, primary science or special education students. Filled with active, visual and practical tasks about describing light, images, light observations, light reflections, refractions, senses for light, eye structure, colour & filters, describing sound, ear structure, sound & vibrations, hearing sound and more. With an easy-to-follow format, a non-specialist science teacher can deliver this workbooklet with confidence, science teachers can add ideas, and many student will self-direct their learning.
Workbooklet also includes Additional Teaching Suggestions, Learning Checklists, Learning Feedback sheets.
A resource for revision of the Light and Sound section of the KS3 curriculum.
Easily adapted to suit the requirements of your own schemes of work, the resource is designed to be copied onto double-sided A3 with one side for students to organise their notes on the different sections of the topic and a second side of practice questions. Answers to the questions and exemplar notes are included. The resource meets the requirements of the National Curriculum for science, as well as linking in to GCSE content.
The revision activity takes around an hour to complete and give feedback on. Also suitable as homework, especially for students who find it difficult to organise their revision effectively.
