Edexcel GCSE Physics S.I. UNITS

Edexcel GCSE Physics S.I. UNITS

An engaging lesson presentation (44 slides) and accompanying worksheets that go through the S.I. units for the physical factors which students need to know for the Edexcel GCSE Physics and GCSE Combined Science exams. The lesson uses quick tasks, questions and competitions to ensure that the students know the units and are able to convert between them as well. Time is taken to show the students why the units are so important in terms of marks in exams, picking the correct equation and recognising when they need to convert. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but is suitable for KS3 students who are looking to learn the units ahead of their exams in the future

Forces between objects, contact and non-contact forces and force fields. Complete lesson.

Forces between objects, contact and non-contact forces and force fields. Complete lesson.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. For USA - this lesson is for use between 8th to 10th grade. This is a complete lesson from start to end. You do not need to spend a huge number of hours carefully planning it and writing differentiated resources, I have already spent those hours creating this great lesson. Furthermore it has been improved time and again after each use – it is a tried and tested lesson of very high quality. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: * Describe the difference between contact forces & non-contact forces. * State examples of non-contact forces and relate them to real life scenarios. * Describe what a force field is and what affects it. * Understand how the strength of force is represented and how it changes with distance. This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of learning activities as below: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Activity sheet (unique) - differentiated HA and LA and all answers are in the powerpoint. * Practical / student experiment. * Sorting activity * Gap fill activity on the activity sheet - all answers are provided. * Quiz with answers. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer marking / Self marking opportunities * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Play ball. * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework * Scientific Literacy activity. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. * Extension activities - only for use if required. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons created by “Barclayfox” once they appear on TES. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search box/engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. This lesson is part of a series, whilst they all work very well as standalone individual lessons you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundles – contain 3 or more of these lessons at a discounted price (however please note not all my series are bundled). 1. Vectors and scalars. 2. Forces between objects, contact and non-contact forces. 3. Forces and Newton’s third law (N3L). 4 to 12 - please see list in this powerpoint Thank you, and happy teaching! Yours, Barclayfox.

The Solar System

The Solar System

An engaging lesson presentation (26 slides) that is designed for GCSE students to ensure that they know the different structures that are found within our Solar System. The lesson begins with a fun challenge where they have to complete a wall hanging that talks about the journey of the Earth around the Sun. Students will understand that the other 7 planets and the dwarf planets are also in orbit in the system. Moving forwards, students will compare the rocky planets against the gas planets and through this will recall that natural satellites like the Moon are also part of the Solar System. This lesson is also suitable for KS3 students who are studying the Universe

Life cycle of a STAR

Life cycle of a STAR

An engaging lesson presentation (31 slides) that looks at the stages in the life cycle of a star and ensures that students know how these stages can differ between stars depending upon their mass. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recall previous knowledge to state that nuclear fusion occurs in stars and the substances that are involved in this. Moving forwards, the first three stages of the life cycle of all stars is introduced and key details given. After the main sequence stage, students will learn that small stars, such as our Sun, become red giants whereas large stars become super red giants and then a supernova occurs. There is a link to the distribution of heavy elements as a result of this explosion. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used with high ability KS3 students who are studying the universe as a topic
