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.

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!

Rates of reaction introduction

Rates of reaction introduction

A 30 minute lesson I used in an interview. you need quite a good pace to get through it in 30 minutes-I admit I did the plenary just as groups so could be spread over a longer time easily.I used a sheet that was already on TES which i got from here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/rates-of-reaction-6070772TEEP lesson plan included. The lesson is a quick introduction to rates with an experts task included and exam question plenary.The file labelled concentration is the information sheets. pupils start in groups of 4, then number off 1-4 and become experts on one of the areas.

GCSE Additional Chemistry Keywords for Brainstorming , Revising  or Assessing

GCSE Additional Chemistry Keywords for Brainstorming , Revising or Assessing

A collection of keywords for every topic in additional chemistry which can be used in a number of ways. For example students can define, link and brainstorm their knowledge before they attempt exam questions. The resource is suitable for all abilities as it would stretch the most able students to explain the terms in full sentences but it would help weaker students to describe the link between the most commonly used words for GCSE chemistry.
