Several fact sheets I have produced on the effect of different chemicals such as retinol and CFCs on human health. Also what they are and what we use them for.
I have used this for BTEC unit 4, parts M3 where they need to describe the uses of different organic compounds, and for distinction, the risk of these on human health.
Powerpoint on the big bang and the birth of stars. Cards describing the birth of a star for student groups to put into order (those on publisher are in the correct order - sorry for the lack of a space between the words form and a - can't adjust it on my publisher), also star life cycle cards (for both large and small stars - again correct order on powerpoint)
A card sort of the properties of xylem and phloem for students to complete (higher level). Students can work alone or in pairs to match the key word to its definition. Also includes card with xylem and phloem on that studnets can hold up in response to your questions on the topic.
Card sort of the adapatations to seasonal changes that animals and plants use to survive changing conditions within their habitats. Looks at hibernation, leaf shedding, food storage, overwintering of pupae, insulation, migration and
retreating underground. Students match the adaptation to a description and an example of a species that does that.
Powerpoint on nuclear radiation, covering discovery and early uses. Also question sheet with answers and a worksheet on the uses of nuclear radiation. Powerpoint also contains Millionnaire game adjusted from its original format, found on TES.
This is end of Module 2 Assessment which has been typed up from inside the OCR textbook as there was no electronic version available. This covers all of the topics below:
Atoms, compounds, molecules and equations
Amount of Substance
Acid-base and redox reactions
Electrons, bonding and structure
This assessment includes a range of multiple choice and longer answer questions to get students ready for the summer exams. Spaces can be typed in for students to write under the questions or they can also answer on another piece of paper. The corresponding markscheme is available as well.
I use this at the end of Module 2 to inform progress before larger assessment week exams.
This is lesson 4 in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry.
The powerpoint covers bonding pairs vs lone pairs repulsion, drawing simple shapes and a rule list for helping determine how many LP and BP and therefore what shape is produced. It also goes onto multiple bonds. I encourage the use of molymod kits for this lesson too, which helps with the 3D aspect of bonding.
