A scheme of work to introduce science to year 7. I have created a booklet that goes with this which is mainly taken from exploring science which has not been included. The 11 powerpoints with these have also been added
8 lessons worth of practical skills as an introduction in science. Includes full student booklet and powerpoint with brief lesson plans to accompany student booklet. Also included is equipment that will be needed for practicals. All lessons are Harry Potter themed and are used to introduce basic skills in science, being safe in the lab, lighting a bunsen burner, learning to use a thermometer and a measuring cylinder, making crystals, flame tests. Investigation skills also introduced, such as identifying variables, drawing results tables and graphs and analysing data with evaluation.
This will really excite new year 7s and enthuse them with science.
Powerpoint summary of the key sections from Module 1 - Practical Skills of the OCR Chemistry A specification for first teaching from 2015.
Includes a blank mind map that can be printed off and given to students to add in the content either individually or as a group exercise.
Mind maps to support learning for OCR Chemistry A for first teaching in September 2015.
These summaries cover each unit of Module 4: Core Organic Chemistry.
The sections covered are: Basic Concepts, Alkanes, Alkenes, Alcohols, Haloalkanes, Organic Synthesis and Analytical Techniques.
They are incorporated all together as a powerpoint, but can be given out as a handout at the beginning of a topic to give the ‘big picture’ of the unit, and then referred to throughout the unit and/or used to encourage students to look ahead at what is coming next.
They can also be used as a revision tool – questions on the mind maps help students to see the point of each section and can also challenge them to add missing information or make their own better mind maps, using the specification as a reference point.
18 science glossaries for different parts of the curriculum. They were originally designed for KS3 but can be used earlier or later depending on ability.
These can be used for reference or spelling homework or starts to topics.
Chemistry - Acids & Alkalis, Atoms & Elements, Compounds & Mixtures, Reactions of Metals and Simple Chemical Reactions.
Biology - Cells, Environment & Feeding Relationships, Food & Digestion, Plants & Photosynthesis, Reproduction, Sound and Hearing & Variation
Physics - Electric Circuits, Energy Resources, Gravity & Space, Space & Beyond, Particle Theory and Speeding Up
These are traffic light cards designed by myself as ever other ones I could find were not good enough. These were originally for science but can be used for any subject.
I have attached the template PowerPoint which can be used with these. I have a set of 30 made and laminated that are a superb resource for starters, plenaries and in class assessment to show progress in the lesson. I have set it up fot 10 questions, but you can add more easily.
The two sheets are supposed to be printed back to back so that the colours match on both sides.
