Free body diagrams and resultant forces. Newton's first law, and third law. Complete lesson.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. For USA - this lesson is for use between 8th and 10th grade. This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson outcomes, students will be able to: * Draw “free body diagrams”. * Explain Newton’s first law. * Explain Newton’s third law. * Successfully calculate “resultant” forces. This carefully crafted lesson is over 40 slides long, and is full of learning activities as below: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Activity sheet (unique) - simply print this slide for each student. * Activity sheet - answers. * Gap fill activity - all answers are provided. * Quiz with answers - using mini whiteboards (if available) * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer or self marking * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Play ball. * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework * Scientific Literacy activity. * Scientific Numeracy activity * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons created by “Barclayfox” once they appear on TES. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search box/engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. This lesson is part of a series, whilst they all work very well as standalone individual lessons you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundles – contain 3 or more of these lessons at a discounted price (however please note not all my series are bundled). 1. Vectors and scalars. 2. Forces between objects (contact / non-contact and Newton’s 3rd law). 3. Forces and Newton’s third law (N3L). 4. Resultant forces, free body diagrams - This Lesson. 5. Forces and acceleration F=Ma 6. Required practical F=Ma 7 to 12 - please see list in this powerpoint Thank you, and happy teaching! Yours, Barclayfox.

KS3 Science Revision (List of topics; PPT)

KS3 Science Revision (List of topics; PPT)

List of traditional KS3 Science topics together with 2 PPTs in which each heading on the list has a slide summarising the topic/concept. I use it to help Year 9 pupils prepare for their end-of-year exam. Probably too big to print out, but perfect to send to pupils over e-mail or put on a shared area or VLE.

Energy Transfers

Energy Transfers

A range of resources I created to deliver to KS4 class. Covers: Introduction to energy and wasted energy (with Sanky diagrams) Elastic Potential energy (calculations and worksheets) Gravitational Energy (Visual learning and worked calculations) Energy Transfers (Closed systems and heat loss) Insulating homes (reducing waste energy and research based task on insulation)

Insulation and Heat loss

Insulation and Heat loss

Delivered to KS4 class but can be altered for any ability. Discusses different ways of preventing heat loss. Leads students through researching different ways to reduce heat loss and enables comparisons. Practice style question and answer for writing about conduction.
