Targeted Experiment / Required Practical template 1

Targeted Experiment / Required Practical template 1

Experiment/ required practical sheet designed to bridge the gap between KS3 experiments and preparing students for KS4 GCSE required practicals. Each set (1-5) have been designed with different targets based on key terminology students will need to be able to recognise and use in the NEW 2015 GCSEs. There is a low, middle and high ability sheet in each set of templates.

Four in a Row Interactive Quiz Game: GCSE Magnets

Four in a Row Interactive Quiz Game: GCSE Magnets

An exemplar FREE version of this game is available to try before you buy. With this version the questions are unlocked and can be altered. Four in a Row games on six other physics topics are available individually from my shop or as a bundle at a greatly reduced price. Four in a Row is a game for your whiteboard. Nothing needs to be printed or prepared to play this game. The game-play is somewhere between noughts and crosses and blockbusters. Two teams alternate, competing to correctly answer questions on the grid. The board is interactive - clicking tiles changes the colours and also reveals answers. Magnets Four in a Row is designed primarily for GCSE Physics/ Combined Science courses but may be useful elsewhere.

How to build a Loudspeaker

How to build a Loudspeaker

This lesson can be used as a bonus lesson at the end of the Physics Unit 4.7 - Electromagnetism. I have used this lesson with students to demonstrate the effect of EM induction, and how we can use this in real life. The worksheet to show the students how to build a loudspeaker has been provided, and no expensive equipment is required to make them. Please check how the animations work in the lesson before using it to make sure that it works for you. Enjoy!
