Forces: Calculation activity
This resource includes a series of worked examples to numerical problems using F=ma, W=mg, P=F/A (and area calculation), Moment = Fd. Then, there is a worksheet of problems to give to each pupil to work through, and some extra level 6 and level 7 problems for them to try when they finish (I cut these up and put them into pots labelled with the levels, and gave a sticker for every extra problem attempted).

Mrs Volt + biscuits: Voltage activity and analogy
KS3/4 children can struggle with the concepts of current and voltage, and with how to correctly connect an ammeter/voltmeter. I tried this analogy: energy supplied to electrons is like biscuits on plates. Helps show why voltmeter is connected in parallel, clarity meaning of voltage dropped and explain observations in parallel vs series circuits. Also contains differentiated investigation activities with explanations, and ammeter/voltmeter wiring quiz.\n\nSee also: Mr Amp (ammeters and current)

Mr Amp: Current Analogy for Electric Circuits
KS3/4 children can struggle with the concepts of current and voltage, and with how to correctly connect an ammeter/voltmeter. I tried this analogy: current is like the number of children running through a corridor /sec: Mr Amp (the ammeter) stands in the corridor counting children (electrons) and timing them (this explains why the ammeter is wired in series). This can help in showing conservation of current around the circuit and explain observations in parallel vs series circuits. Also contains a slide of investigations to complement it.\n\nSee also: Mrs Volt (chocolate biscuits and voltage)!

Levers 2: Shrek and Moments
I put a sign on the door prompting kids to push close to the hinge when coming in and then later got them to discuss what they found. Content: summary of key terms, principle of moments, starter puzzle (to discuss): 'Can Olive Oyl lift the rock?', Shrek and friends on a seesaw (I had a demo seesaw with plasticine Shrek characters and I went through investigation as a demo with the whole class, filling in the table and then introducing the equation), calculations including starter puzzle. Also contains homework and another yoyo puzzle.

Lesson on Levers
This lesson includes: a fun and challenging yoyo puzzle to get the class thinking about turning effects (can be done live with a bigger yoyo but I have provided videos); a starter introducing them to the topic of forces, and a lesson explaining the different types with examples (to be accompanied by real demos of levers). There is also a worksheet to check keyword knowledge. At the end, challenge the kids to identify which type of levers are hidden in the doublelevers. See also: levers 2 (introduction to moments).
