Elements, Compounds and Molecules

Elements, Compounds and Molecules

(3)
This worksheet has been differentiated for use in mixed ability classes. Blooms taxonomy has been integrated into the questions so that pupils can work their way through the sheet and make progress (Levels have also been indicated, ranging from Level 3-Level 6). My school are using Activate 1 and 2 at KS3. My current Year 7 class were taught the first 3 lessons (elements, atoms and compounds) and then given this as an AfL tool before moving on to chemical formula. Year on year I find that Year 7 pupils (and KS4 pupils) struggle to understand what an element, atom and compound is and the difference between the 3. This worksheet was designed to assist pupils with the these concepts.

Calculating Magnification

(0)
A differentiated worksheet where pupils calculate the magnification of a microscope: Bronze = eyepiece lens x objective lens Silver = converting between quantitative units (millimeters, micrometers, nanometers, picometers) Gold = using image = actual x magnification Differentiation built within each task (Bronze, Silver and Gold) to really challenge pupils. I printed this sheet off and cut into task strips, with pupils target grades/working at grades determining the task they do. I have also known teachers to get pupils to self select the task based on retrieval practice score or a starter activity.

KS2-KS3 Transition Project Science

(1)
An engaging and fun resource targeted for Year 6 pupils who will be making the step from primary to secondary school. Pupils attempt the 'Alien Missions' (Biology, Chemistry and Physics) to not only prepare them for Science at KS3 level but also to inspire them to enjoy Science and understand that Science is comprised of Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The Biology mission is a research based task, whilst the Chemistry and Physics missions contain practical aspects. The final page of this project is then an assessment of the 3 missions pupils complete (using Blooms taxonomy - state, describe, explain).
Making Salts

Making Salts

(10)
Students to practice writing word equations, formula equations and balancing formula equations using this differentiated worksheet. I taught this to a high ability year 7 group to challenge.
