Lesson Two of the Am I Fit Year 9 SoW. This lesson looks at the effects of smoking & drinking é includes a key assessment for students to complete. \n\nThe entire SoW is based around Superheroes to help engage learners. There are 10 lessons in total and all resources for each lesson can be found on the TES. Some ideas that I’ve used for lessons/resources have been taken and adapted from excellent resources I have found her on TES. If you see something which looks like it might be yours thank you and please let me know so I can credit you for it directly. \n\nFeedback would be much appreciated
Card sort activity with key words from the topic, their definitions and explanations of processes. Suitable for high ability group but could be adapted for less able group by removing the explanation cards.
Good as an intro to the topic or revision exercise
Powerpoint used across a series of lessons for AQA GCSE Heat transference, kinetic theory, insulation and U-values. Includes starters, notes and some activities and questions.
Some quite challanging content used for a high ability group but easily simplified.
**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

A series of lessons aimed to develop scientific investigation skills in KS3 students, would be good for year 7/8 or lower ability year 9 or for revision for higher ability year 9.
Lesson scheme as follows:
1-3. intro investigation skills and compression strength of biscuits-planning, doing and analysing (3 lessons)
4.which biscuit has the most energy
4.dunkability of biscuits (which biscuit can be left in the longest without breaking/ absorbing the most liquid without breaking
5. density of chocolate bars floating and sinking
6. making tea method writing
7. tea investigations-shape, stirring or temperature of water.
