Template for showing science skill progression at KS3

This is a simple tick list for many of the scientific skills that we develop at KS3. It can be used to show how a student's skills have developed from 'needing help' to 'confident' and what skills they can be focusing on. My students love to be able to tick them off.

Scientific Practices for Middle School Students

Scientific Practices for Middle School Students

This unit comprises an eleven part series on scientific practices, which supports Appendix F (Science and Engineering Practices) of the NGSS. All lessons are developed using the BSCS 5E instructional model for teaching and learning (Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate) with a 6th (Extend) added for good measure. The handouts are based on video materials found on the "How About Science?" website at http://www.howaboutscience.com/scientificpractices. Students may work independently if everyone has an internet connected device. If not, the videos can be projected and the handout filled out as a group. Two handouts and keys are provided for each lesson. Choose either one, based on the time you have and the ability level of your students. The first handout is more detailed and will take more time to complete. The second handout is shorter and focuses more on main ideas. Just go to the website and click on the appropriate video. Your students can watch the videos, fill out the handouts., discuss the answers and take the online quiz (Kahout). The emphasis of this unit is on the skills a scientist needs in order to ask good questions, conduct an investigation and communicate results effectively. Students learn how to ask scientific questions, how to write a hypothesis, the importance of variables, how to make data tables and graphs and much, much more!

Science and Maths Display.  Converting between units - prefixes and conversions

Science and Maths Display. Converting between units - prefixes and conversions

A eyecatching and useful display to get pupils used to converting between different units. E.g Kilograms to grams and micrometres to millimetres etc. Especially useful for new science GCSE conversions invovling microscopy magnifications but useful for and science or maths classroom. PS Centimetres and Decimetres included not in the main section and so optional as I've found it helps pupils to convert using 1000 but then to develop.
