Excellent. I found these ideas fantastic especially the rice crispie cakes. What better way for children to have a hands-on-experience and be learning about science without them even know they are learning.
Plus they get to eat their experiment too.
Andrew Moore's teaching resource site; fantastic for AQA spec A resources, for students and teachers. Resources on all poetry and prose in the anthology, with questions to prompt response, aswell as resources to support coursework and general aspects of English teaching. Also resources provided for Drama and for A-Level Engish Lang, Lit and Theatre Studies
Teaching and learning resources for modern languages. Games, activities, materials, recommendations, research, lots of of teaching aids. Also info on refreshing your language before teaching and funding available for pml teachers. Also a section for young children, games and activities for interactive learning and encouraging young children to learn lanuages.

**UPDATED June 2016** Thank you for all the positive comments and ratings.
This resource pack includes a highly visual and engaging 33-slide PowerPoint presentation that teaches magnetism to year 7 or year 8 pupils. Scaffolded note-taking worksheets for learners have been customized to go along with these PowerPoint presentations. Two additional worksheets and a quiz are also included. The learning objectives are listed below.
By the end of this series of lessons, pupils will:
1) be introduced to the discovery and history of magnets
2) know the elements that have magnetic properties
3) observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others
4) compare and group together a variety of everyday materials on the basis of whether they are attracted to a magnet, and identify some magnetic materials
5) describe magnets as having 2 poles
6) predict whether 2 magnets will attract or repel each other, depending on which poles are facing
7) know that materials contain groups of spinning electrons called domains
8) know that the domains are aligned in magnetic materials
9) know that the domains of a non-magnetic material are not aligned
10) learn about magnetic fields by plotting with compass, representation by field lines
11) learn about Earth’s magnetism, compass and navigation
12) explore the magnetic fields of permanent and induced magnets, and the Earth’s magnetic field

Lesson PowerPoint, easy to follow, explicit planning and activity resources.
The second in a series of lessons to develop children's knowledge about 'States of Matter,' for the 2014 primary curriculum.
We are learning to identify states of matter and their properties.
An interesting mastery question for a starter - 'If sand can be poured from one container to another, does this mean that it is a liquid?'
Recaps children's prior knowledge.
Develop's children's knowledge of the states of matter and their properties - specifically around particles.
Links to Ancient Greek topic as covers the Ancient Greek who first suggested particles.
Further 'mastery' thinking required for deepening and mastering learning, through thought provoking questions etc.
3 differentiated activities (2 of these are provided, one is an independent task and is on the PowerPoint. It has strong links to literacy)
Lesson PowerPoint, planning and activity resources.
The first in a series of lessons to develop children's knowledge about 'States of Matter,' for the 2014 primary curriculum.
We are learning to compare and group materials.
Children begin by working in groups and making their own decisions on how to group a range of materials and reason their choice to the class.
Opportunity for children to consider what the states of matter are and identify these within their own environment to make their learning meaningful.
Children start to explore the properties of materials.
Some 'mastery' thinking required for deepening and mastering learning.
