KS3/4 Science Engaging Cover Worksheets Pack 2

Welcome to the next installment of quick Science Cover for your classes! These three exciting activity sheets focus cover all aspects of Secondary Science, with a sheet each for Biology, Chemistry and Physics! There are 3 interactive worksheets which will take between 1-2 hours each to complete (each have 4 sides of A4 to work through!), with a range of activities from; in-built word searches with secret messages to find once complete, fill in the blanks, unscrambling the words, content questions, pair match up, drawing activities, physics mazes and cryptograms. This has been used with many of my classes, from top to bottom sets, Year 11 to Year 7, with my Year 11 students staying in during their breaktime as they were determined to finish them! All content covered aims towards GCSE, and students can use their exercise books, textbooks, computers or IPads to complete the work that has been set. If there are any issues, or you need some extra assistance, please let me know and I will make any tweaks necessary!

BTEC Level 1/2 Certificate in Applied Science Unit 3, Assignment A workbook

Welcome to the Gibbon’s Guides to Science! As an experienced teacher of GCSE, A-Level and BTEC Levels 2 and 3, I’ve got a lot of resources I’ve developed over the years. This is one of them. It’s a workbook designed to contain all the information and work needed to get your students to the Pass level at BTEC Level 1/2 in Applied Science. Since these worksheets only cover the Pass tasks, obviously the learners will have to do the Merit and Distinction work themselves, but this resource will help them get there more quickly. It’s also laid out in order of tasks, so it makes it easy for you to mark (which is more than half the battle).
