This resource is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the new AQA GCSE Physics and Trilogy Physics specification, and links to Internal Energy and Energy Transfers.
This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:
*Identify how you can find the specific heat capacity for a material.
*Describe a practical that you can do to test the specific heat capacity of a metal.
*Explain how the energy required to heat a material changes with specific heat capacity.
*Apply your understanding of efficiency to calculate how efficient your practical is.
*Link your understanding of metallic structures to explain why metals tend to have lower specific heat capacities than none metals.
This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.
Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
Enjoy!
V1.01 - Update to some of the animations in the powerpoint.

Estimating volume - to start having a think about capacity.
Jug measuring - For top ability group with support, thinking about measuring in ml and counting in 100s and 1000s. Challenging - good scaffold for relevant vocab use.
Measuring out into cups - Used for my BA group to do with support.
Some time will be needed to collect resources but if you put a note in the staffroom or ask parents these things can be collected faster (then keep them for next time)
As said on sheet adding food colouring and sequins makes it that bit more exciting!
Thank you :)

Learning Objectives
Explain how to measure the capacity of the lungs
Experimentally measure lung capacity
Link necessity of large lung capacity for athletes
All resources included and plenty of opportunities for AFL and learning checks. Varied activities including explanatory animation, video, demos, exam practice, practical etc.
Skills
Writing valid scientific method which will produce reliable, accurate and precise data
Recording and presenting data using a suitable graphical method

2 sets of questions Easy and difficult about SHC
Easy questions just apply the equation
More difficult questions require students to re-arrange the equation and convert units.
Comes with answers.

Capacity Questions
Metric Measures - Volume of Liquids
For the US measures version of this resource, please go to my shop here
The questions involve jugs containing a number of litres of liquid which need to be poured out into cups of a certain size in millilitres.
This resource can be used in the classroom as a practical activity, with the children measuring out the liquid themselves.
The document is 5 pages in total, but you only need to print 2 pages for the students.

GCSE lesson on specific heat capacity including key content from AQA GCSE Physics.
Includes an example which could be used as an teacher demo if wished for starter.
Lesson focuses on words to inform what specific heat capacity means to help understand the equation and units. Questions included for practice of using equation for exam to secure marks in exam.
Also an exam question is attached at the end.

These are activities to assess children's ability to read scales in ml and litres. Children should have first hand experience measuring into different size cylinders or bottles first to get secure understanding of when to use ml or litres. They should experience for example that four 250 ml containers fill a litre bottle. They can then move on to identifying the reading of scales in different jugs and solve problems. These resources are differentiated for mastery and greater depth. There are opportunities to show reasoning. Suitable and high expectations for the new maths curriculum.

These resources support and follow the planning provided by White Rose Maths. This unit focuses on the small step of introducing capacity. Included in the folder are questions based on varied fluency, reasoning and problem solving. The documents are in word and PDF.

KS1 Maths Teaching Resources: Measuring Capacity - Year 2
In this Year 2 teaching resource pupils are taught to choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure capacity. They are also required to compare and order different capacities and record the results using >, < and = (as per the Year 2 Programme of Study – Measurement).
It includes a 43 slide PowerPoint presentation, interactive quizzes and four accompanying worksheets to consolidate learning.

A powerpoint summarising the Specific Heat Capacity Required Practical for the new 2018 AQA Trilogy Specification. Powerpoint includes; working scientifically assessments, Apparatus &Technique skills, Method and Graph.

These fluency worksheets cover the following year 1 objectives:
compare, describe and solve practical problems for capacity and volume -for example, full/empty, more than, less than, half,
half full, quarter
They are designed to be used after practical work.
Particularly useful for those following white rose, as they cover the small steps for spring term, block 4

A complete and 'ready to deliver' KS3 lesson.
Lesson title:
Breathing (inhaling and exhaling) and lung capacity.
Lesson objectives:
1) Describe the “process” of “inhaling” and “exhaling”.
2) Describe how a “bell jar” can be used to model what happens during breathing.
3) Explain how to measure lung “volume”.
This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do NOT need to spend hours carefully planning and resourcing this lesson – I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for you.
There is nothing to do but give it a quick read through and familiarise yourself with it, and if necessary, take some simple decisions the lesson guides you to make before delivering it. You may also wish to remove a few slides to reduce its length if required for your particular group of learners.
The lesson contains:
* Need list – telling you what to photocopy or what kit to order etc
* Notes to help the teacher
* Title & lesson objectives (as above).
* Starter task where students self-assess themselves against each objective
* Scientific literacy activity
* Homework (you choose whether your learners need to do it)
* Questions – all answers are provided.
* Paired work activities with answers.
* Theory slides (minimal – interspaced with thinking activities - not ‘death by powerpoint’)
* Practicals in groups – with scaffolding text
* Equipment list - to give to your technicians (excel file).
* Numeracy activity
* Gap fill activity – answers are provided
* Plenary formative/summative assessment activity / quiz
* Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt

About this lesson.
This lesson is one of a set of 4, these are titled:
L1 Cells, tissues and organs.
L2 Gas exchange and alveoli.
L3 Breathing (inhale and exhale).
L4 Skeleton, joints and muscles.
You may find it useful to buy all the lessons in the set as they are linked together (for example a homework maybe given in one lesson and then tested in another).

Capacity: These cootie catchers are a great way for students to have fun while they practice with units of capacity. How to Play and Assembly Instructions are included.
There are 2 cootie catchers in this product, each one having 8 problems for a total of 16 problems. Problems include converting units of capacity (ounces, cups, pints, quarts, and gallons), as well as determining the most appropriate unit of measurement. Answers are provided for each problem.
