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

Working Scientifically Workbook

(0)
I have made this resource for my school’s alternative curriculum facility at the request of our Deputy Headteacher. They wanted a unit of work for students who had been sent out of lessons for a longer period of time which was separate from work being covered in class, as managing the former system was getting tricky. I decided to make a Working Scientifically resources which could be completed independently, but that would also double as a revision resources for students or a teaching resource for lesson time. The workbook covers: Introduction (which incorporates a skills checklist and the list of the AQA Required Practical Activities) Key Words Identifying Variables Hypotheses and Predictions Apparatus and Techniques Methods Risk Assessments Tables of Results Types of Data, Graphs and Charts Presenting Data Evaluation Peer Review Referencing Conclusions I hope that you will find this resources useful. Please let me know if you have any suggestions for improving the workbook! :)
