Christmas Song Parody- Science Style

Christmas Song Parody- Science Style

Students can create their own Christmas (or Holiday) song parody where they insert science-related terms into famous holiday jingles. Now those concepts will be crystal clear as you reteach and/or prepare for the end-of-year assessment. Or, you can surely measure how much the students have learned by the year's midpoint. Or, you can use as a holiday extra credit assignment! Choose their destiny!

History of Atomic Structure

History of Atomic Structure

Why choose this resource? It has a timeline that students can make notes on underneath headings. It uses literacy skills as students locate the correct information from the notes on a separate sheet. This is for GCSE Science students studying the history of atomic theory. It worked well with my Year 10 group.

A helpful sheet that can be used for any topic to help organise an argument. Works really well for the 'QWC/Quality of Written Communication' (old money 6-mark questions).
