This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Chemistry GCSE, particularly the 'Atomic Structure & Periodic Table' SoW.

The lesson starts with a video about Mendeleev and the development of the periodic table, pupisl should answer questions alongside watching this video. After this work has been self-assessed pupils will be given an information sheet in pairs, this can be tag read as a class for lower ability pupils.
Using this information pupils will need to answer a set of questions, they can complete these tasks in their book and once finished this work can be self-assessed using the answers provided.
The next part of the lesson focuses on metals vs. non-metals, pupils will be introduced to the idea that the periodic table is split into two groups and will then need to use a poster activity to summarise the differences in properties between these two groups. Once this work has been self-assessed, pupils will then be given another set of information about different types of metals and pupils will use this information to complete a worksheet.
The plenary activity is a an exit card where pupils will need to summarise what they have learnt by writing down three key words, one fact and one question on a piece of paper which can be handed to the teacher as they leave.
