Get £3 FREE to use in my shop. Enter code MEGA-MARCH at www.tes.com/redeem**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.

Scientific Enquiry - Eggs in a bottle

Scientific Enquiry - Eggs in a bottle

Smear Vaseline around the rim of a conical flask; boil an egg and peel it. Light a splint and put into conical flask. Put egg on the opening of the conical flask and watch it get sucked in!BUT! Get your students to work out how to fit the egg in whole for themselves. They feel massive amounts of satisfaction when they manage this successfully, and you can assess their science skills too! This document is basically a lesson that runs itself. You just need to give the kids clues, and get them to record how their ideas change as the lesson flows. This allows you to demonstrate progress really easily if you print the ideas sheet onto A3 and let them keep it in front of them. Great for a 1 off lesson, or as part of a scheme on gas pressure.

GCSE Hydraulics Revision or Class Activity

GCSE Hydraulics Revision or Class Activity

This resource consists of a multiple choice quiz with answer sheet and a link word activity. Instructions on the link word are provided and follow below. Link WordsStudents placed in groups of two and given a relevant textbook. Working as a team, using glossaries, text book, internet etc. students then force a relationship between as many of the words as they can by making coherent sentences with their chosen words..They can either:-1. Write an sentence using the two words that clearly explains how they are linked. See examples below* ___________ is linked to _________ because __________________. *. ________ is linked to ______ an example is ______________.*. ________ is similar to ________ because ________________.*. _______ is different to ________ because _______________.*. We can use _________________ to ____________ because _________.2. Simply make sentences using as many of the words from the sheet as possible. To differentiate the task the words carry a number score. A high ability student would have a far higher score than a lower ability student. This forces the higher level student to choose words that have a higher value ie more difficult to make connections to.Encourage students to use as many words as they can in their EXPLANATION as they will be added to their scores.

*UPDATED January 2017 - More support worksheets added*This resource includes a 56 slide PowerPoint presentation, four activity worksheets, a mind map, a short quiz and a 34-question unit test. Everything is ready to be used or easily edited to suit your learners. • Includes sound clips to bring the learning to life• Animations have been thoughtfully used to promote participation from lower achieving students and discussion from higher ability ones. • 26 learning outcomes listed belowBy the end of these lessons, pupils will:1. recognise that sound is made by objects that vibrate 2. define that the frequency of vibration of the source is measured in Hertz (Hz) 3. discuss how sound is made in different musical instruments 4. know that a vibrating source causes the layers of air around it to move 5. discover that sound travels by compressing and expanding the surroundings 6. express that sound travels as a longitudinal wave 7. discover that sound travels best through solids and worst through gases because of the arrangement of the particles 8. explore the relative speed of sound in different mediums 9. explain that sound waves cannot travel through a vacuum because there are no molecules 10. know that sound waves detected by the ear cause the ear drum to vibrate 11. explore the structure of the ear 12. describe how sound is transmitted through the ear to the brain 13. know that different people have different ranges of hearing 14. know that the average human range of hearing is 20 to 20,000 Hz 15. define that loudness is measured in decibels (dB's) 16. discuss that 0 dB is the threshold of hearing and 130 dB's is the threshold of pain whilst 140 dB's causes damage 17. discuss that loud sounds can have permanent and temporary effect on the ear 18. discuss some common causes of ear damage 19. define that noise is unwanted sound 20. discover that a loud sound is produced by a large vibration and vice versa 21. discover that a high pitched sound is produced by a very frequent (quick) vibration and vice versa 22. know that an microphone can change sound to electricity and that this can then be displayed on an oscilloscope 23. know that the wave displayed on an oscilloscope is a transverse wave 24. demonstrate how to identify the amplitude, the wavelength and the frequency of a wave 25. recognise the link between the loudness of the sound and the amplitude of the wave 26. recognise the link between the pitch of the sound and the frequency/wavelength of the wave

Forces, Energy changes and Waves

Created for a year 9 class using the new AQA GCSE specificationThis resource is differentiated by task and also by time to be spent on each. Red activities = hardest,Orange = medium demandGreen = easyThe stars represent the time to be spent on each ( I change this depending on the ability of the group/ student e.g. each star represents 2 minutes)I usually display on the board and students work on A3 or print for lower ability classes.Could cut up and use as flashcards
