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.

Rock and Rock Cycle Scavenger Hunt - An Activity

Rock and Rock Cycle Scavenger Hunt - An Activity

Rock and Rock Cycle Scavenger HuntThis scavenger hunt introduces to students an information and basics about the Rocks, their formation, types and rock cycle on earth.There are 24 scavenger hunt cards with colourful pictures. It’s a great tool for to review vocabulary on rock cycle.Preview images may have reduced picture quality due to jpeg file. But original .pdf file contains clear images.Directions to use ‘Rock and Rock Cycle Scavenger Hunt’Purpose: At the end of this ‘scavenger hunt on rock and rock cycle’ students will be able to learn on vocabulary of rock cycle and science behind it.1. Print the given all 24 cards on a card stock or any other good paper and cut them along the black line.2. Get the print of Scavenger Hunt questions pages and each student should be given this copy.3. Place printed Scavenger Hunt cards around the classroom. For example you can place it on chair, on table, on benches, behind the classroom doors, besides the computer or wherever you like.4. Students have to search the cards in a classroom in order to find out the answers of the questions. Students can complete this exercise in a group with classmate or alone. You will find lots more in my store, including math, science, ELA, activities/craftivity, special education, interactive activities, and more!
