Christmas Song Parody- Science Style

Christmas Song Parody- Science Style

Students can create their own Christmas (or Holiday) song parody where they insert science-related terms into famous holiday jingles. Now those concepts will be crystal clear as you reteach and/or prepare for the end-of-year assessment. Or, you can surely measure how much the students have learned by the year's midpoint. Or, you can use as a holiday extra credit assignment! Choose their destiny!

KS4 Physics Holiday Design Challenge

KS4 Physics Holiday Design Challenge

Mr S. Claus needs a new sleigh, and your KS4 Physics students will need to put their knowledge of motion and forces to the test if they want to have the winning design! Ideal for those last few days of term before the holidays begin. I've had good results from putting a chocolate prize up for grabs for the best design. This activity is designed to be completed in one lesson. The activity sheet consists of a project brief, a few simple calculations (unit conversions, calculating average speed, F = m x a), and space for students to design their sleigh. Includes the activity sheet in Word and PDF format. *** Legal stuff: Cover image is from Creative Tools via Flickr (https://flic.kr/p/95hFqx).

Physics Equations Quiz for Edexcel 9-1 GCSE (up to Topic 3)

Physics Equations Quiz for Edexcel 9-1 GCSE (up to Topic 3)

A short quiz on the must-learn equations for the Edexcel 9-1 GCSE. Covers all equations up to Topic 3 (Conservation of Energy). Feedback from my students (and their test results!) has indicated that remembering equations is one of their biggest areas of concern. In response, I put together this quiz, and provided my students with the list of equations from Appendix 2 in the specification as a study guide. The quiz is a fill-in-the-blank style (one mark per blank), and includes a mix of word equations, symbolic equations, and compounding units. Pure recall. Includes the quiz in Word and Pages format, as well as the answer key as a PDF. *** Cover image: http://maxpixel.freegreatpicture.com/Mathematics-Mathematical-Physics-Formula-School-757566
