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.

KS3 Physics - Electricity Resource Pack, Ciruits, Current, Voltage, Electric Components

KS3 Physics - Electricity Resource Pack, Ciruits, Current, Voltage, Electric Components

**This resource has been recommended by the TES Resource Team** *UPDATED JANUARY 2017* Added a crossword puzzle with answers.This resource pack will get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. It includes:• A lucid and logical 69-slide PowerPoint which includes many visual aids. The slides are thoughtfully animated (not over-animated) to allow opportunities for learners to participate and promote class discussions.• Seven pages of interactive notes (scaffolded notes). These notes fit perfectly with the presentation. I find this activity keeps lower-level students engaged during the lessons while allowing differentiation for higher achievers. • A crossword (with answers), some homework questions and a quiz.**Just print and go! Or customize to fit the needs of your class.**Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below.• By the end of these lessons, pupils should know:1. that electricity is a form of energy.2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity.4. that we can represent components by symbols. 5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators.6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow.7. how a switch works.8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel.9. that current is measured in Amps. 10. that current is measured using an ammeter. 11. how to connect and use an ammeter.12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit.13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up. 14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used. 15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy.16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current.17. that more cells in series equals more voltage. 18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness.19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. .20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire.21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.Hope you find it useful. Your feedback is much appreciated.
