This is a bundle of four complete and fully resourced lessons introducing pupils to forces in Science.
The resources are…
Intro to Forces: Physics: Forces Lesson
This is a fully resourced introductory lesson teaching pupils about the different types of forces.
This Physics: Forces Lesson pack contains: A PPT (32 slides) and handouts (3 sheets) .
Activities include:
Starter Task: A Thinking Skills questions- on forces.
A mind map on forces. Following which there is a visual explanation of what forces are.
Pupils will then undertake a Conveyor belt activity and have to match up the correct picture with the correct type of force and meaning.
Included in this pack is a peer assessment sheet that can be used to mark the individual activities.
Exit task/Plenary: ‘MOO or False’ This is a true or false activity based on the information gathered during the lesson.
Measuring Force-This is a practical lesson introducing pupils to Newton meters.
Physics: Measuring Force, Newton Meters Lesson pack contains: A PPT (15 slides) and a peer assessment handout (1 sheet).
Activities include:
Starter Task: A Thinking Skills questions- measuring force.
Task 1: Pupils are introduced to Sir Isaac Newton and his invention, the Newton Meter. Then pupils are asked to measure everyday items and record this information in the form of a table in their exercise books.
Task 2: Pupils should then be given a spring and a hook and 5 weights (1-5 kilograms). They will need to hang the spring and add the weights one by one and measure the length of the spring each time a weight is added and record the data in the form of a table. They will then be asked to plot a line graph (you will need to provide graph paper for this task).
Task 3: Pupils will need to conclude on the results and describe the relationship between weights added and the length of the spring and link this to how a Newton meter works.
Included in this pack is a peer assessment sheet that can be used to mark the individual activities.
Plenary: our interactive Starter and Plenary Prompt Selector that is worth £3.
Balanced & Unbalanced Force: Forces: Balanced and Unbalanced Force
This is a fully resourced lesson introducing pupils to balanced and unbalanced forces.
This Balanced and Unbalanced Force Lesson pack contains: A PPT (23 slides) and a Workbooklet (2 sheet).
Activities include:
Starter Task: A Thinking Skills questions- on movement of objects.
Task 1: Pupils are introduced to balanced and unbalanced forces by watching a short YouTube video clip and can make notes on this.
Task 2: Pupils then complete an activity on different objects and determine the direction of movement on the object.
Task 3: Pupils will swap their books and peer assess their answers.
Task 4: Pupils will watch a short animation and be asked to take part in a class discussion on this.
Task 5: Pupils will be required to complete a flow chart on the animation.
Exit task/Plenary: our interactive Starter and Plenary Prompt Selector that is worth £3.
Friction: A Grab and Go Lesson! To see a video of this lesson please visit: https://www.facebook.com/TeachElite/
Alternatively, you can download a copy of the sample video from: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/friction-sample-11588011
This is a complete lesson on the topic of Friction. It includes a fully editable lesson plan, PowerPoint, Differentiated activities (at the end of the PowerPoint) and a Pupil Peer Assessment sheet. The PowerPoint includes a bell task linking back to forces and a conveyor belt activity on the topic of forces too. Pupils are taught the basic principles of friction and then are given the task of creating a leaflet on the topic. There is a level ladder included in this pack based on Skill 1: Finding Information.
Forces AFL: Pull the udder one!
A completely customisable true or False activity. This particular one is based on forces.
Pupils love the interaction shouting moo (true) or quacking for false statements. This can be used as a starter, plenary or an AFL checkpoint activity throughout the lesson.
In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .
