CC2b - Filtration & Crystallisation

CC2b - Filtration & Crystallisation

Why spend hours worrying about creating outstanding resources for your lessons when they can be done for you?This outstanding resource is created from the Edexcel (9-1) Combined Science specification and covers the lesson titled CC2b: Filtration & Crystalisation in the unit CC2: Methods of Separating & Purifying Substances.This presentation kicks off with a 'hook'. This is a stimulating image that should be displayed on the board to grab the pupils’ attention as they walk into the classroom. This hook comes with a question for pupils to be thinking about to engage their inquisitiveness and activate an inquiry based approach to learning. An approach that will enhance progress.An eye catching title page is then displayed whereby pupils can find the date and title, you simply need to change the date! The image found on this title page again is aimed at maintaining pupil interest. On the subsequent slide you will find the lessons learning outcomes which are linked to the 9-1 levelling system using Blooms and SOLO taxonomy. Both taxonomies have been proven to provide the necessary guidance and structure to a lesson that pupils need in order to enhance learning and progress. These learning outcomes are displayed throughout this resources for the teacher and pupils to refer back to as an AFL tool. Progression questions provided by Edexcel are then displayed to the pupils. as they are in an inquisitive and inquiry based state of mind, providing questions that will be answered throughout the lesson at this stage is ideal.Carefully reading the lesson plans provided by Edexcel I have created a resource that covers the necessary content for this lesson using the recommended activities. The starter activity comes highly recommended from Edexcel. The subsequent slides that cover the content a visually stimulating to the pupils. The notes found within the presentation slides have the key words highlighted to stimulate discussions with the pupils as well as to begin training the pupils to essentially take ‘notes’. AFL can be found throughout the entire resource in the form of questions provided by Edexcel themselves as well as questions added in my myself. Progression questions and exam questions provided by Edexcel for this specific lesson can also be found towards the end of the resource to test pupils understanding. The activities suggested/included in this resource are at the users’ digression however they are engaging and inclusive to all. Finally, I have included a 10 question quiz at the end of this resource that can be completed using mini-white boards with the class. This tests acquired knowledge and can also be used at the start of the resource. This resources can be used as part of this SoW or as a stand-alone lesson. It can also be purchased in a 3 lesson bundle or the entire unit.
