KS3 Acids and Bases Full Unit

Full unit of work introducing Acids and Bases to KS3 classes (these lessons do also work for lower-ability KS4 classes, and higher ability if you want to break up your planned curriculum with practical lessons/check their practical skills).
Covers safety in the lab, what chemical reactions ‘are’, pH scale, acids and bases and making your own indicator.
Lessons here are easily digestible, colourful and contain dollops of humour where possible.
Lots of opportunity for practicals, with detailed equipment list and instructions for all practicals and demos. Also instructions for a practical that involves eating sweets that I almost guarantee will make your class go mental. They love it though. Clear opportunities for differentiation.
For the price of three sausage rolls you can save yourself hours of planning. Sausage rolls are amazing though I don’t blame you if you go for them instead.

Save for later
