Energy Stores&Transfer Word-search - KS3

(0)
This word-search has been created for KS3 Physics but can even be used for KS4 revision. It’s a quick starter activity or something to give students to do if they have finished the task first. It shouldn’t take long at all - maybe 10 minutes max for the whole class. Its a good reflection tool and a quick way of getting some AFL into the lesson! This could even be used if the students have never covered this topic before - it allows the students to discover the key words for the lesson by themselves. There are 6 questions relating to energy transfer & stores, some of which are word fill. Once they have answered the question they can find the key word on the word-search !

Electron Structure - Chemistry Online Activity

(0)
Online Activity I’ve designed this activity purposely to be used for remote/online learning. The students will be able to drag and drop the electrons, protons and neutrons to the correct areas, without interfering with the diagram itself or title etc. You can use this activity in anyway you choose, emailing it out to each student individually or doing it during an online synchronous session. Drag and Drop activity involving the periodic table, there is 1 to 4 orbitals shown. Students will be able to choose any to do or you can edit the slides to suit you.
AFL - Exit Card

AFL - Exit Card

(0)
This is an Exit card which you can use as a plenary activity for students as they leave your lesson, they can’t leave without handing you the card! This is a great opportunity for some meaningful AFL and to make it even more useful you can ask students to add their name. This was you get individual feedback from the students and can then adjust your future lessons accordingly. Offering students specific support for their needs! To use you can print out them each time However, to save the trees, you could print enough for one class then laminate so they can be written on like whiteboards and reused for multiple classes. This is a great resource with one side for ‘shading the box’. This will show you the visual level of understanding of the whole lesson. The other side has three questions relating to the lesson which you can then use to plan their next lesson. You will be able to identify what most students were struggling to understand and even identify misconceptions. This type of self assessment is great it allows students to be honest and not feel embarrassed if they are struggling to grasp a concept, as they dont have to say it outlaid or show their hand. It’s completely private between you and the student and it shouldn’t take longer than 5 minutes. I hope this resource help you in the best way! and encourages our learners to be proud of their mistakes as its nothing to be ashamed of! Please check out my other resources!

**This is a quick icebreaker to use with your students to test them in a fun way! It can be used for KS3 & KS4. The RULES Give students a card between two and a piece of paper Set a timer- however long you think they will need In that time ask them to answer each question At the end ask any students what answer they got, if anyone of their peers got similar ask them to raise their hand. Keep a note of each answer and the number students who raised their hands. The students who had the most popular answer the most popular DON’T receive a point! The point of this activity is to try and help students think outside the box, using their understanding. Rather than memorisation ~can be used as a starter/plenary or ice breaker activity~

Succession Flow Diagram

(0)
In this document there are primary and secondary succession flow charts. I have include ones with text next to each diagram and ones which are blank which would work as a worksheet for students to fill in themselves. They are in a Word document so editable if needs be for your specification of work. They involve the mention of the nitrogen cycle and some photosynthesis as well as succession. All diagrams are my own and created on word. UK: Appropriate for KS4 and can be used for KS5 revision. please check out my other resources
