OHM's Law Questions

OHM's Law Questions

Question sheet that pupils can do in pairs. The answers the pupils get correspond to a letter. Once the whole class have answered their q's then they should have a number of letters which will spell out a word. In this case it is book boxes (I hid chocolate for my class in the book boxes). Nice starter or plenary to keep them interested in maths skills.

Activate 1:  P1 1.2 Squashing and Stretching

Activate 1: P1 1.2 Squashing and Stretching

Complete lesson PPT with learning outcomes, new knowledge and activities detailed on the slides. This is the second lesson on the 'Forces' topic. The resource is designed to be used with the Activate practical sheet, Investigating Elastic, and to support pupils aiming for developing and secure outcomes. All pupils should be able to state an example of a force deforming an object and recognise a support force; most pupils should also be able to describe how forces deform objects; whilst some pupils should, in addition, be able to explain how solid surfaces provide a support force. Supporting information can be found on page 114 and 115 of the blue Activate 1 KS3 Science Textbook.

Fictional Planets Wordsearch Science Physics Solar System Starter Settler Homework Cover Lesson

Fictional Planets Wordsearch Science Physics Solar System Starter Settler Homework Cover Lesson

Wordsearch on the theme of 'Fictional Planets'. Powerpoint so can be used on the board or printed as a worksheet. Includes space for students to explain the keywords and suggested extension activities. Can take 10 minutes or an hour, depending on which activities the students complete. Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen. The idea behind these is to get students to become more literate and think independently about the words that could be used to describe the topic being taught. The repetition of the word over and over as they look for the word is useful in remembering the terms. Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect!

Graph Drawing Challenge Question

Graph Drawing Challenge Question

This resource is aimed at a class that is studying graphs and relationships of graphs. it is a hr diagram in which they have questions of varying difficulty. now this is an activity aimed at students who have probably never seen this before so its all about getting them to infer from the information given to them.
