Are you tired of students identifying measuring cylinders as beakers and calling beakers "cups"??
Struggling with students getting names of apparatus wrong in test and in conversations?
This is what you have been looking for!
THIS is a resource that can be used for all years, particularly Year 7 apparatus identification and induction into secondary science, but also for Applications of Science BTEC course to help ensure students know their pieces of apparatus for their practical examination.
The first page has the names of the common apparatus for KS3 and KS4, the second page has the pictures of the apparatus to help students to recognise them.
This resource can be used in a number of different ways, depending what you want to do and what your students are familiar with:
-A starter or plenary activity
-Group work: they're given the cards, separated, and they need to sort and pair as a group.
-Pair work: Use the keywords as a question for an opponent to locate the answer.
-Give each student a card sort (separated already) as a homework/classwork activity.
-Give each student the two pages of cards to stick the words and the symbol back to back to make key idea revision cards to learn for revision.
-Choose a few as a starter activity, jumble them up, and pop onto a slide for the beginning of a lesson
-Any other use you can think of!
Laminate a class set of them if you want to use them repeatedly.
