The book is designed to support new and existing science teachers. It put together a number of old and new ways to inspire students and engage them in their learning. This is particularly useful for new and trainee science teachers as it gives ideas and guidance, all in one place.
This is a merge of the 3 book in the series of making science engaging and memorable through the use of investigations and demonstrations.
This book contains all 150 demonstrations and investigations from the 3 books that are also available separately.
50 demonstrations and experiments that have been used to make science engaging and memorable. There is a range of practical demonstrations and investigations for biology, chemistry and physics for different scientific topics for key stage 2, 3, 4 and 5.
Topics include chemical reactions, nuclear fission, nuclear decay, half-life, life cycle of the star, food and digestion, sound, waves, earth and its atmosphere, speed, velocity, acceleration, DNA, genetics, cells, momentum, energy, efficiency, combustion, respiration, inertia, change of state, forces, magnets, electricity, polymers, super cooling, pykrete, seed dispersal, moments, heat transfers, convection, terminal velocity, rate of reaction, rockets, pH, acids and alkalis and pressure.
Two books, each with 50 engaging and memorable demonstrations/practicals - 100 in total!
These are designed to support existing teacher, NQTs, ITT, PGCE students and more in both primary and secondary schools.
These books supports the teaching of various topics/units including:
Speed, velocity, acceleration, forces, energy transformations, atomic structure, ionic bonding, covalent bonding, energy resources, states of matter, magnets, terminal velocity, volume, elements, periodic table, genetic, diseases, floating and sinking, pressure, chemical reactions, enzymes, cell division, combustion, momentum, smoking and much more….
This is the third book in the series with each book containing 50 demonstrations and investigations.
The book is designed to support science teachers new and old, including trainee (PGCE, ITT, NQTs) science teachers. It contains both old and new ideas that can help to engage and inspire students.
Investigations include: Bouncing egg, mouse traps, comets, bath bombs, exploding cans, kaleidoscope, testing double glazing, rockets and much more.
