Electricity KS3 Pack - Current, Voltage, Series, Parallel Electric Circuits, Compenents Y7 Y8

**This resource has been recommended by the TES Resource Team**

*UPDATED JANUARY 2016* Added a crossword puzzle with answers.

This resource pack will get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. It includes:

• A lucid and logical 69-slide PowerPoint which includes many visual aids. The slides are thoughtfully animated (not over-animated) to allow opportunities for learners to participate and promote class discussions.

• Seven pages of interactive notes (scaffolded notes). These notes fit perfectly with the presentation. I find this activity keeps lower-level students engaged during the lessons while allowing differentiation for higher achievers.

• A crossword (with answers), some homework questions and a quiz.

**Just print and go! Or customize to fit the needs of your class.**

Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below.

• By the end of these lessons, pupils should know:

1. that electricity is a form of energy.

2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains

3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity.

4. that we can represent components by symbols.

5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators.

6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow.

7. how a switch works.

8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel.

9. that current is measured in Amps.

10. that current is measured using an ammeter.

11. how to connect and use an ammeter.

12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit.

13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up.

14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used.

15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy.

16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current.

17. that more cells in series equals more voltage.

18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness.

19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. .

20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire.

21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.

Hope you find it useful. Your feedback is much appreciated.

It covers: vector and scalar quantities, contact and non-contact forces, weight and mass, weight being proportional to mass, centre of mass, resultant force and how it affects motion, drawing a resultant force using scale drawings, vector diagrams, work done, force and extension, the limit of proportionality, elastic and inelastic deformation, force and compression, turning moments, levers, gears, pressure in liquids and gases, calculating pressure, how and why pressure changes with depth, why objects float, atmospheric pressure, distance and displacement, speed and velocity, distance-time graphs, calculating acceleration, velocity-time graphs, acceleration due to gravity, terminal velocity, balanced and unbalanced forces, Newton's Laws of Motion, F=ma, inertial mass, stopping distances, reaction times, momentum, conservation of momentum, change in momentum and force.

New AQA Chemistry Topic 4: Chemical Changes

** Trilogy and Separate science courses**
Nearly 40 resources that cover everything you need to deliver topic 4 from the new AQA specification, lesson Power Points, activity sheets to accompany each lesson, and practice exam questions. Every lesson slide has graded LOs and key words visible - these can be changed from the master slide view on MS PowerPoint.
For the three required practicals within this unit there are lessons and methods formatted into student friendly language from the AQA handbook as well as follow up work to support their knowledge.
There are also end of topic assessments differentiated for the trilogy course or separate sciences and accompanying mark schemes.
