Simplified Periodic Table

Simplified Periodic Table

I can never seem to find the right periodic table for my students so have made one ideal for KS3/4. Relative atomic mass is only measured to 1d.p. for elements such as Chlorine.Lanthinoids and Actinoides are ignored.Elements are not given capital letters.UK spelling.Relative atomic mass is shown above the chemical symbol.Includes livermorium and flerovium, moscovium etc.Colour coded groups.Groups 1-8 labelled.

A Brief History of the Atom - Presentation for KS3, GCSE or A Level

A Brief History of the Atom - Presentation for KS3, GCSE or A Level

A PowerPoint presentation outlining the history of the atomic model from Democritus to Higgs, including the key discoveries of Thomson, Rutherford and Chadwick and others between them.A student-friendly format, with pictures, makes for a good scaffold for this lesson. Includes notes on each slide with additional information about the scientists and the impact of their discoveries. Especially useful if this is not your first subject or if this is not an area you are familiar with.Has been used for introducing the idea of atoms to KS3, to match the new requirement at GCSE/KS4 for an understanding of the history of atomic structure and at A Level/KS5 to meet the HSW 1 and HSW 7 (How Science Works) requirements for understanding the development of scientific models over time.

10 Alphabet Analysers Science Chemistry Literacy Brainstormers Cover Homework Plenary Starter

10 Alphabet Analysers Science Chemistry Literacy Brainstormers Cover Homework Plenary Starter

10 starter-style alphabet brainstorm analysers sheets covering 10 themes including Solids, Liquids & Gases, Atomic Structure, Quantitative Chemistry, Metals, Organic Chemistry, Acids, Alkalis & Salts, Energy, Crude Oil & Fuels,Chemical Industry and Earth & The Environment. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. For some there are more than one analyser, so the class can get a wider range of keywords.The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Complex ions, ligand exchange reactions and preparation of Prussian Blue (lab work)

Complex ions, ligand exchange reactions and preparation of Prussian Blue (lab work)

A micro-chemistry procedure for studying the colours of complex ions, the stability of ligands and the exchange reactions that can lead to colour changes. There are several preliminary questions included, as well as a number of post-lab questions.Included is also a procedure to produce a colloidal suspension of Prussian blue, which is a good opportunity to remind students of concepts such as:- precipitation- mixtures- separation of compounds- purityIt is also an interesting experiment in that Prussian blue was the world's first synthetic dye.
