Lesson 1: A presentation that takes pupils through the 10 rules for the Science lab. A great back to school refresher.
Lesson 2: Hazard Symbols- This lesson introduces pupils to signs and symbols, why we have them in Science and specifically symbols that are found in the laboratory. Pupils are asked to look at every day symbols and their meanings and to discuss why we have symbols. They are then introduced to 9 hazard symbols and their meanings. This lesson comes with a blank hazard symbols mind map to complete during the lesson. They must then carryout research for homework and record it on this mind map (we print it onto A3 paper). In addition, there is a set of hazard flash cards for a recall and a doodle task. test can be printed and laminated for reuse. They are great for revision also!
Lesson 3: Science Apparatus- This is an introduction lesson to demonstrate how pupils draw scientific apparatus in diagram form and the uses of these within the laboratory. This resource pack contains: A PPT (30 slides) & handouts (2) covering 10 different apparatus. Included in this resource is one of our timers complete with MUSIC. Activities include: Starter Task: Show Me Whiteboard activity
Examples of how to draw each item in diagram form and tasks to support this.
Plenary (Exit task) : Doodle Task
Lesson 4: Volume- This is an introductory Science practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure volume and teaches them the importance of accuracy. This resource pack contains: A PPT (24 slides) and handouts (1 sheet) . Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC. Activities include: Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Demonstration on how to accurately measure liquid.
Experiment on measuring different volumes
Plenary (Exit task) : Beat the clock
Lesson 5: Time-This is an introductory Science practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure time and teaches them the importance of accuracy. This resource pack contains: A PPT (14 slides) and handouts (2 sheets) . Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC. Activities include: Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Activity on on recording time digitally. Pupils will find out when completing the challenges that they won't be accurate. Therefore, they will want to repeat challenge reinforcing the need for repeat experiments to find averages. Experiment on measuring different times and two practical challenges.
Plenary (Exit task) : Think, Pair Share- Please note…This Exit Task/Plenary is designed to draw out the findings of the measuring time activities. These being that the children will learn that using a stop click to seconds and hundredths of seconds will give them a precise time. However, this is not 100% accurate due to human error (reaction times). You should discuss how to improve on accuracy ( use of repeats and find an average).
Lesson 6: Temperature-This is an introductory practical lesson to demonstrate how pupils measure temperature and teaches them the importance of accuracy. This resource pack contains: A PPT (12 slides) and handouts (2 sheets) . Included in this resource is two of our timers complete with MUSIC. Activities include: Starter Task: Thinking Skills question
Activity on on recording temperature. Pupils are asked to estimate the temperature of certain items and plot them on their worksheet. Then they are given the answer and asked to plot the temperatures correctly. Experiment on measuring temperatures. Plenary (Exit task) : Slap it up- Pupils are asked to write something they have learnt in the lesson and a question they would like to ask and slap it up on the board before they leave.
Lesson 7: Variables- This is an introductory lesson explaining the concept of variables within a scientific investigation. This resource pack contains: A PPT (12 slides) and handouts (1 sheets) . It is recommended that an experiment of your choice accompanies this PPT in order to reinforce the significance of variables. Included in this resource is two of our ultimate bubble timers complete with MUSIC. Activities include: Starter Task: Thinking Skills question.

They will then have to create a flowchart on setting up a Bunsen burner. Once this is complete, pupils will take it in turns to peer assess each other on accuracy and safety. Included in this pack are A4 certificates and credit card size bunsen burner licenses. The exit task is based on our interactive 5W activity. The 5w selector will select one of the 5ws (who, what, where, when or why) and the teacher should pose questions based on this selection about the Bunsen Burner. Pupils can fill in the 5w sheet as the plenary/exit task progresses.
