This is the first lesson (maybe two lessons) in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for Year 7 Chemistry. The lesson includes ideas about the differences between solids, liquids and gases using a Venn diagram (which I would suggest enlarge to A3 and laminate along with the cards for future use), materials circus practical, properties of solids liquids and gases as well as an introduction to changes of state. This scheme of work was made when Levels were used in KS3 so this may need to be amended for your own assessment criteria at KS3.
This is the first lesson in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint is long and will probably take 2-3 lessons based on the ability of the class! It covers GCSE concept of electron shells compared to sub-levels, orbitals, rules for filling, short hand configurations and deciding on the blocks in the periodic table. I have included my tip on how to best illustrate energy levels, sub-levels and orbitals in a diagram drawn on the board if you check the notes at the bottom of the slide!
Third topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. All lessons fully resourced with powerpoints, worksheets progress sheet of the whole topic, PAG worksheets, multiple choice assessment and homework booklet with markscheme. I hand out the homework booklets at the start of every topic and collect in at the end to mark using www and ebi. The homework booklet questions have been sourced from the end of Chapter questions within the OCR textbook and typed up as no electronic copy was available. The mark scheme corresponds to the OCR pages in the textbook as well. This is the whole topic for Acids and Redox fully resourced 2.1.4-2.1.5 according to the OCR Specification. I have included the 10 for 10 (10 qs in 10 mins) which is a multiple choice summative assessment I used after I taught 2.1.1-2.1.5 to get the students used to multiple choice questions and assess their progress. The answers are at the back of the test. SOLO symbols are used to differentiate between tasks. Hope you find it useful and please let me know of any suggestions or improvements. More topics to follow!
This is the eleventh lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7. This lesson includes a powerpoint on identifying dissolving, filtering and evaporation techniques from diagrams, what happens in evaporation and then a final group practical. This is a rock salt challenge so students are assessed on their group practical skills as well as their answers to the evaporation questions. This scheme of work was made when KS3 Levels were used, so you may need to amend the levels according to your own assessment criteria used for KS3.
This is the seventh lesson in a topic I made called Chemistry Corner for KS3 Year 7. This lesson includes a powerpoint on a high five review task for acids and alkalis, making indicator from red cabbage, testing red cabbage indicator to identify whether a mystery solution is an acid or alkali. This scheme of work was made when KS3 Levels were used, so you may need to amend the levels according to your own assessment criteria used for KS3.
This powerpoint and practical sheet covers two lessons worth of content. The powerpoint covers: How an ester bond forms a fat and oil. Melting point of fats and oils and how they can be used to make soap. How Biodiesel is formed and why it isn’t 100% carbon neutral. Practical instructions to make soap using caster oil and sodium hydroxide (as well as an extra practical making detergent) This powerpoint has been made following the new AQA A Level Chemistry specification.
This lesson introduces the key ideas of Acyl Chlorides and will cover one lesson's worth of content. The powerpoint covers: IUPAC rules for naming acyl chlorides The 4 different reaction processes that acyl chlorides undergo. The products and reactants needed for the 4 different acyl chloride reactions The reaction mechanism for Acyl Chlorides is not covered in this single lesson powerpoint but another resource. This lesson is based on the New AQA A Level Chemistry specification.

This is lesson 4 in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers bonding pairs vs lone pairs repulsion, drawing simple shapes and a rule list for helping determine how many LP and BP and therefore what shape is produced. It also goes onto multiple bonds. I encourage the use of molymod kits for this lesson too, which helps with the 3D aspect of bonding.
This is lesson 5 and 6 in the Electrons, bonding and structure topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. There is enough content here to easily last 2-4 lessons depending on the ability of the class! The powerpoint starts off with a bonding pop quiz to test their recall of drawing shapes, names and bond angles then goes onto electronegativity, polar and non polar bonds. The following lesson then covers London forces, permanent dipole-dipole and hydrogen bonding and applying this to properties of water. There is also an AfL task which I set the students at the end to consolidate their understanding of intermolecular forces and looking at case studies of iodine, water and DNA.
First lesson I use as an introduction to A Level Chemistry as part of Module 2 - Foundations of Chemistry. It is a great group based lesson to encourage discussion about recapping ideas from GCSE including: Labelling an atom Atomic numbers Numbers of sub-atomic particles in atoms and ions Isotopes
This is the fifth lesson in the Amount of Substance topic in Module 2 - Foundations in Chemistry. The powerpoint covers calculating concentration review and mass concentrations and then goes onto how to read from a burette and my titration top tips! The students then have to perform a titration and try and get concordant results in order to calculate the concentration of hydrochloric acid using a standard solution of sodium hydrogen carbonate. There are questions on the practical sheet which structures the calculations with model answers on the teacher sheet.
