If you would like the resources I used too please email firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send them! (I'm sorry but please don&'t email me via TES as I forget to check and you might never get them!)
Equally suggestions for improvements gratefully received too! :)
A quick ppt to get chdilren thinking about the different teeth of animals and how they help them eat their food. I couldnt find anything useful on the web so made this quickly to tie in with the QCA and new star science schemes of work
The first week involving a literacy plan for learning about newspapers, including their structure. The plan involved the 2012 Olympics but also used nursery rhymes to help frame how a newspaper column is laid out.
A week's planning including worksheets and teaching aides introducing the children to the formal method of division (referred in plans as the bus stop method). Also included are related word problems and extensions.
The children often struggled with questions that masked to work out a missing coordinate so I pulled all the previous SATs questions I could find on this to go through and explain them. I also made a game to add in the missing point on a grid with four quadrants to make 2D shapes.
**UPDATED May 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
Hope you find these resources helpful. Please rate and comment.
Resources included are as follows:
PDF files for you to print.
A range of over 200 A5 flashcards of food from around the world, covering the following countries:
Also includes A4 flags from each country and the country name for display.
An overview of the homeostatic principles involved in fluid balance in the human body. The kidneys are explored along with the chemicals that influence the functioning of the renal system. This presentation could be amended pending angle that lesson is aimed towards.
A great resource to support children in understanding the different stages of the human life cycle. Included in this resource pack is:
An information PowerPoint exploring the differences of each stage of the human life cycle.
A life cycle worksheet for children to complete (differentiated)
A worksheet where children can note down the different things humans can do in each stage.
