Science is Magic!

This is a set of ideas for a stage presentation that works very well for assemblies, open days and Science Week! It is a series of Magic tricks that will really engage your learners and that are very simple and cheap to set up and perform! I like not to give away the answers, but let the learners try to figure out how they work. I found that this encourages them to talk about the demonstrations for a long time after the show and it encourages scientific discussions!

Eight different extracts to use with students from the 19th, 20th and 21st centuries.

Each lesson is clearly structured with learning objectives, learning start activities, learning review activities and opportunities for students to demonstrate and assess their learning in a number of ways.

The lessons aim to develop a common approach for tackling each question to build students' confidence. There are a number of opportunities for students to tackle the different question types and the presentations provide clear steps and guidance to support students during the assessment process.

Model answers and assessment sheets also included.

Extracts included:

'American Sniper', Chris Kyle

In addition to this, the presentations also include some optional Paper 2, Section B questions that link to the extracts and aim to develop students' nonfiction writing skills.

The lessons and extracts are focused around the theme of war so they can be linked with the 'Power and Conflict' AQA poetry anthology to develop students' contextual understanding for the English Literature exam.

Any feedback on the resource would be greatly appreciated!
