Colour printable 'electricity' cards - with words and symbols - cut and make into matching game. Can be used as memory game - face down and find symbol to match the word or as snap (paired etc.) Have also used to build imaginary circuits.
This is a resource that can be used for all years, particularly Year 7 lab safety induction into secondary science, but also for Applications of Science BTEC course to help ensure students know their hazard symbols.
The first page has the names of the hazard symbols, the second page has the pictures of the hazard symbols.
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!
If you use as a class set for starters or plenaries: laminate them, they will last longer and be reusable.
