2017 HSC Physics workbook starter bundle

2017 HSC Physics workbook starter bundle

These resources are very simple but useful timesaving resource for teachers to use when preparing Unit Workbooks for students. This simply contains a cover page (with royalty free/no attribution images) and title. I had aimed to incorporate all the syllabus outcomes, but this was not possible as they carry copyright restrictions. I will aim to update these with more template formatting over the coming months, but given the need for preparing content in preparation for implementing these mew syllabuses in 2017, these should come in handy for saving (a little bit of) time.

Lesson: Meteors, asteroids, comets, satellites and other celestial bodies

Lesson: Meteors, asteroids, comets, satellites and other celestial bodies

This was prepared for a year 10 (Australia) class on Space. It is a supplementary tool, and should be used in conjunction with a well planned lesson. Most slides have key words removed for students to work through - I suggest printing 9 slides to a page (just large enough to read) and have the students complete the blanks (perhaps underneath the slides). Images are royalty/attribution free stock unless referenced on same slide. These are able to be reproduced without copyright infringements (according to Pixabay.com). If you believe an image is yours, please let me know and I will immediately remove it, or add the appropriate source details.
