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.

Nuclear fusion

Nuclear fusion

An informative lesson presentation (28 slides) and accompanying differentiated worksheets that go through the process of nuclear fusion and ensure that students can explain why this method of generating electricity is not currently being used in the UK. The lesson uses a step by step guide to go over the important details such as the nuclei that fuse and what is produced. This includes checks on previous knowledge so students can check their understanding of isotopes. Moving forwards, students will learn that nuclear fusion is not as simple as it may appear and using the reaction in the Sun as their example, will be challenged to explain why energy companies are so desperate to get this method to work but have as of yet been unsuccessful. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students

Energy adds up - complete lesson (KS3)

Energy adds up - complete lesson (KS3)

This lesson is based on the Activate 2 (P2.2) SOW but can be used for others. The lesson covers the law of conservation of energy, different energy stores, energy transfer and dissipation. Learning is assessed at 3 stages using think pair and share, an energy store match up, and a 4 mark question to answer. Students are scaffolded up to each task, and answers are included to allow self/peer assessment. The practical activity involves 6 small experiments that the students must visit, observe energy transfers and explain their observations within a table. Extension questions are included for those who finish early, again the answers are included within the slides. The plenary involves students reflecting upon their progress against the learning objectives.
