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.

What is Energy? FREE enter code @ Checkout

FREE for new buyers-enter code: SAVE6 @ checkout. This is an interactive lesson that consists of 26 slides (PowerPoint) and an 8 page resource booklet. You can find a preview of the booklet that is included in this lesson @ http://fliphtml5.com/gonfq/sdyc The starter activity is based on our conveyer pelt activity and is designed to ascertain prior knowledge. There is a worksheet to fill in based on this and the subsequent class discussion. Pupils then peer assess each other's work. There is an interactive selector based on the popular fidget spinners. Pupils are taken through the 8 different types of energy and they have to make notes on the 'What is energy?' worksheet. It is suggested that this be enlarged to A3 size. Pupils are tasked with inserting the new vocabulary learnt during the lesson into their vocabulary booklets. You can find our Science Vocabulary Booklet by clicking the link. Following which there is an interactive quiz where pupils are asked 20 questions (provided) and the team to get the most points wins. Visit our ScienceTeacherElite Shop

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.1 Energy Quiz

AQA Combined Science Trilogy: 6.1 Energy Quiz

Want to quickly and easily review a chapter of the AQA Combined Science Trilogy specification? Want to be able to lead pupils to a targeted revision list to enable them to close their gaps? This revision resource consists of a range of questions across the specific specification points. There are a minimum of two questions per spec code. The specification document has been closely used to guarantee the correct use of terminology and phrasing. This leads to pupils then self-marking after each sub topic. This will consist of them marking and noting the identified spec code in a WWW or EBI list. Once the quiz is completed they will then follow the instructions to create their own personalised review of the full quiz and self-generate their personalised revision list by specification name using the supplied list. This activity is 1-2 lessons depending on the depth of revision time you allow the pupils though these tasks can be class or homework. Lesson plan included.
