Born Haber Cycles

Born Haber Cycles

Two Power Points, the first shows how to draw born haber cycles for NaCl, LiF, MgCl2, Na2O, CaO and AlCl3. I use it in my lessons to illustrate how each cycle is constructed step by step. The 2nd PowerPoint contains the relevant definitions of each stage and goes through the theory of how the cycles are constructed.

Atomic structure and periodic table cards

Atomic structure and periodic table cards

A playing cards activity which has questions on atomic structure and periodic table. Students can play different card games which also test their knowledge. Students liked playing black Jack where they could only twist and receive a card if they got the question right on the back of the card. There are several games that my students enjoyed playing with this resource. Foundation and higher game cards are included.

C2  Chapter 1.1 Activate 2 Metals and Non-Metals

C2 Chapter 1.1 Activate 2 Metals and Non-Metals

This is the first lesson in the Periodic Table topic of Activate 2, directed at a mixed ability Yr 8 Science class with EAL activity and picture clues to support. The presentation includes a super challenge questions, support and extension tasks on all relevant slides. collaborative learning opportunities. All worksheets, scaffolded questions and challenging sections to stretch higher ability students are included in the PPT Success Criteria: Review you knowledge of common chemical elements Identify properties of metals and non-metals Compare the physical appearance and material behaviour of metals and non-metals Please rate and comment on what you find useful so I can alter my lessons in future. Many thanks

Our evolving atmosphere

Our evolving atmosphere

A bundle of resources on the atmosphere. A rank the definition activity encourages class discussion on how to define the atmosphere. Also included, a group relay activity where students in their groups have to answer questions on how the Earth's atmosphere has changed from the past till present. Students answer each question in turn and can only have a go at the next question once the teacher has confirmed their answer is correct. The group quickest to complete the questions are the winners. Students love these relay activities, it encourages competition and team work and typically takes 10 mins to complete.

Empirical formulae

Empirical formulae

A bundle of two resources on the A-Level concept calculating empirical formulae. The resources include a differentiated calculations sheet (with answers) with each section increasing in difficulty. A class relay activity is included, which involves students working in groups to solve empirical formula problems. Both resources combined encourages active participation and takes about an hour to complete.
