Specific Heat Capacity of Materials

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.

Measuring Capacity - Year 2 (PowerPoint and worksheets)

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.

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 :)

Breathing (inhaling and exhaling) and lung capacity.Quick View

Breathing (inhaling and exhaling) and lung capacity.

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 As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons created by 'Barclayfox' once they appear on TES. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. Thank you for your time. Yours, Barclayfox. 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  and reading scales at intervals Year 2  MasteryQuick View

Capacity and reading scales at intervals Year 2 Mastery

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.
