My ISA Handbook AQA science controlled assessment

My ISA Handbook AQA science controlled assessment

This handbook is intended to prepare students for the challenges of a science controlled assessment through a range of activities that can be completed independently or in class. It includes a 'student speak' glossary and lots of challenging oppotunities for assessment for learning before you begin an ISA. It aims to provide an independent learning opportunity that reduces the amount of class time you need to spend on an ISA. Word file now added so you can customise to suit your centre.

OCR GCSE Gateway Chemistry C1 Revision Pack

OCR GCSE Gateway Chemistry C1 Revision Pack

Pupils test themselves on each topic by reading the information, folding the page over, then answering questions based on what they have read. Students often say they have revised but do not know how to check their understanding. This pack allows them to see how much they have learnt and then check their answers for themselves. The final column of the page gives exam style questions for pupils to answer so is more challenging. The higher tier content is on a separate page at the end of the pack. The worksheets can be used as a complete revision guide before the exam or as homework/in-class consolidation after each topic has been taught. The revision pack is suitable for:• The whole class• EAL students (early stage (with support), advanced stage)• Late arrivals in KS4• Individual students who need to catch up • Students with SEN may also find it more accessible.

Pictionary activity for A-Level Chemistry

Pictionary activity for A-Level Chemistry

Activity to be used as a plenary or for revision, getting the students to practise drawing of apparatus/constructing chemical equations in order to represent key words/phrases relating to A-Level Chemistry content.Designated 'rules' are as follows:Working in pairs, both students turn their stools around so they can’t see the board.One person in the pair will turn around to find the clue they need to draw on the board. They then draw a picture/equation to describe the word/phrase on the board – NO WRITING WORDS! (Chemical formulae is accepted…)First non-looker of each pair to say the word/phrase wins a point for their pair!Ideally could be used with a 'clicker' and have yourself stood at the back to watch for any cheating...
