I produce mainly science resources. All of them have been taught by myself and I include a short comment on my experience of using the resource at the end of the description. I don't like to charge for my resources, BUT I am currently trying to put myself through a masters course on a part-time teachers wage. Once I'm through, everything becomes free!

Content covered:

Acceleration (definition, examples and equation)
Displacement-Time Graphs Recap (could be easily edited if this is the first time on this concept)
Velocity-Time Graphs (description, examples, plotting)

Pre-starter: decode the keywords
Starter: Think, pair share activity about acceleration
Assessment: questions/tasks included in slides, plenary activity, progress stars, homework.
Plenary: discussion on what your neighbour has learned.
Homework: plotting velocity-time graph from data collected in lesson

To print before lesson: code-breaker handouts, velocity-time activity handouts (challenge and support versions included).
Students will also need access to stopwatches for the video.

I usually split this across 2 lessons since it is a lot of content. A good place to split is after slide 15. I found students to be very engaged with the acceleration record-holders discussion since it provides good context. This section is also good for clarifying the difference between velocity and acceleration. They especially enjoy the hat-throwing fungus! Motion graphs section is very carefully laid out and emphasises the differences between displacement-time and velocity-time since I find students often struggle here. The velocity-time activity is very fun, but I have found it needs very careful explaining for some students.
