Whole lesson including starter activity and main work tasks with answers for a KS4 GCSE lesson on electrolysis of ionic compounds (suitable for both combined science and triple science students).

By the end of the lesson students should be able to:

Know what electrolysis is and to state its uses
Explain how electrolysis works
Predict the reactions that occur at each electrode

Students will be able to take rich notes on Electrolysis

The lesson presentation enables teachers to guide students through the process of electroylsis and how to predict the products formed from a particular ionic compound

The lesson ends with a main work task for students to complete. Students will be able to self or peer assess their answers to this task using the detailed answers provided
