Wonderful to show Yr 3 children. Without going into too much detail I can see how you can engage the children in a good discussion about which joints move and how. This can then lead into a further lesson on what makes the bones move.. muscles.
This was used as a starter for a high ability year 7 group to link classification and musculoskeletal lessons. Students to guess the animal from the skeleton followed by a class discussion about how and why the skeletons are different.
A PowerPoint presentation containing photographs of different animal skeletons. This has been used to discuss the features of animal skeletons and as a game to see if the children can workout an animal from its skeleton. Appropriate for Early Childhood Education (Pre-K and younger). ECE-SC, ECE-SC-na
A powerpoint presentation showing digital and analogue time. Suitable for upper KS1, lower KS2. This file can be used as an inspiration for the development of your own ideas for putting across to a whole class a particular teaching point. This is particularly effective if a digital projector can be used.
This power point presentation is mainly targeted to AS and A2 students studying French. However, there are some tasks that can be tackled by KS4 students as they are linked to some areas of experience studied in year 10 and 11. It offers a mixture of linguistic and cultural tasks. All the attainment targets are present. The notes provided will guide the teachers through different activities, including group work and audio-visual authentic material.
This resource contains a web guide from MTN which may be used to create newspaper templates that will allow you to create a newspaper quickly and easily. You can choose a template and create a newspaper a page at a time. It can then be printed and saved locally. The resource also has a series of tabloid newspaper template that may be printed immediately.

This highly visual presentation contains 67 slides that will get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. Scaffolded note-taking worksheets for pupils, homework assignments and a quiz are also provided. Appropriate for your Year 7 or Year 8 pupils. Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below.
• By the end of this lesson, pupils should know:
1. that electricity is a form of energy.
2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains
3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity.
4. that we can represent components by symbols.
5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators.
6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow.
7. how a switch works.
8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel.
9. that current is measured in Amps.
10. that current is measured using an ammeter.
11. how to connect and use an ammeter.
12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit.
13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up.
14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used.
15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy.
16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current.
17. that more cells in series equals more voltage.
18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness.
19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. .
20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire.
21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.

**UPDATED August 2016** Thank you for all the positive comments and ratings.
This resource includes a 53 slide PowerPoint presentation, three activity worksheets, a mind map, and a quiz . I used them to teach the unit on sound with my Year 7 and Year 8 classes. Appropriate in KS3 or KS4.
By the end of these lessons, pupils will know:
1. that sound is made by objects that vibrate
2. that the frequency of vibration of the source is measured in Hertz (Hz)
3. how sound is made in different musical instruments
4. that a vibrating source causes the layers of air around it to move
5. that sound travels by compressing and expanding the surroundings
6. that sound travels as a longitudinal wave
7. that sound travels best through solids and worst through gases because of the arrangement of the particles
8. the relative speed of sound in different mediums
9. that sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum because there are no molecules
10. that sound waves detected by the ear cause the ear drum to vibrate
11. the structure of the ear
12. how sound is transmitted through the ear to the brain
13. that different people have different ranges of hearing
14. that the average human range of hearing is 20 to 20,000 Hz
15. that loudness is measured in decibels (dB's)
16. that 0 dB is the threshold of hearing and 130 dB's is the threshold of pain whilst 140 dB's causes damage
17. that loud sounds can have permanent and temporary effect on the ear
18. that some common causes of ear damage
19. that noise is unwanted sound
20. that a loud sound is produced by a large vibration and vice versa
21. that a high pitched sound is produced by a very frequent (quick) vibration and vice versa
22. that an microphone can change sound to electricity and that this can then be displayed on an oscilloscope
23. that the wave displayed on an oscilloscope is a transverse wave
24. how to identify the amplitude, the wavelength and the frequency of a wave
25. recognise the link between the loudness of the sound and the amplitude of the wave
26. recognise the link between the pitch of the sound and the frequency/wavelength of the wave

This product consists of a series of cards about critically endangered species.
It's a Pokemon cards inspired activity to motivate students to this topic.
It has a few suggestions about how to explore them but I´m looking forward to hear about your ideas!
