Periodic Table Research Task
DaraWettonDaraWetton

Periodic Table Research Task

(0)
Students research the periodic table using laptops (or information sheets) and fill in their sheet, then produce a leaflet on the periodic table and atomic structure. You can easily change the ‘demonstrate’ task at the bottom of the sheet or add another question. Created with OCR 21st Century Science Topic C2 (Chemical Patterns) in mind but would work for other specifications or could be easily adapted. (The preview is cropped but the actual document has borders!)
Covalent Bonding Dot-Cross Diagrams

Covalent Bonding Dot-Cross Diagrams

(0)
This activity includes an information sheet which shows students how to complete dot-cross diagrams, and lots of examples to practice with. I made this to go with a revision video I made (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KV2KxBxmOKA) and have since used it as an independent learning task with students working remotely. They can use the video for guidance as many of the practice question examples are worked through during the video. Note that 2 of the examples on the back (sulfur and methane) are not on the video as I didn’t want it to be too long, however I thought it was important to include them as they may come up in exams. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! Particularly if you are remote working and can let me know how your students found it. :) Typo in the preview corrected in actual file :)

Earth Early Atmosphere Storyboard, Cloze, Exam-Style Questions

(1)
Selection of activities for teaching about the earth’s early atmosphere and how it changed, including a storyboard with answers, cloze activity with answers, and 2 exam-style questions (short questions or a 6-mark) with suggested mark schemes. Covers 4.9.1.2 of AQA GCSE Chemistry (the earth’s early atmosphere).
Conservation of Energy (P1) Revision Summary Sheet
DaraWettonDaraWetton

Conservation of Energy (P1) Revision Summary Sheet

(1)
A summary sheet for revising all sections of AQA GCSE Physics P1 - Conservation of Energy. Including Changes in Energy Stores, Conservation of Energy, Energy and Work, Gravitational Potential Energy Stores, Kinetic and Elastic Energy Stores, Energy Dissipation, Energy and Efficiency, Electrical Appliances and Energy & Power. Each box ties in with a double-page spread in the textbook. I used a 9-question diagnostic quiz to start the lesson, with a question for each box topic, and students started their revision with the areas they got wrong/were least confident in.

Naming Scientific Apparatus

(0)
Worksheets I created for my Y7s. I set up examples of each piece of equipment around the room along with information on their names, uses and scientific diagrams. Students move around the room, collecting this information.
Calculating Efficiency - Worksheet with Differentiated Graded Questions & Answer Sheet
DaraWettonDaraWetton

Calculating Efficiency - Worksheet with Differentiated Graded Questions & Answer Sheet

(0)
Worksheet questions on calculating efficiency of an appliance. Questions are graded and increase in difficulty (no rearranging/converting, converting units, rearranging equations and converting units, 2-step processes). An answer sheet is included for self-marking/correction. Used with mid-ability Y10 for P2 - Sustainable Energy on OCR 21st Century, but works with most specifications. Some questions at the end combine the power equation with the efficiency equation.

Predator Prey Cycles Worksheet & Resources

(0)
Activity on predatory-prey cycles. Students can be given either the scaffolded worksheet or just the graph for them to describe and explain independently. Includes a food web/producers and consumers recap starter. Used with Activate 1 Interdependence and Plant Reproduction with a Y7 group.
Electrolysis Bundle
DaraWettonDaraWetton

Electrolysis Bundle

2 Resources
Includes a worksheet on how to predict the products of electrolysis, a worksheet on how to write half-equations, and a summary sheet for C6 (AQA) - this could easily be used or adapted for other exam boards.
Organelle 'Guess Who' Worksheet
DaraWettonDaraWetton

Organelle 'Guess Who' Worksheet

(1)
'Guess Who' worksheet for Y7 lesson on plant and animal cells. Students identify the organelle from a description of its function. Based on AQA Activate - B1, Cells - 1.2, Plant and Animal Cells (p16 of Activate 1 textbook). You could also ask students to identify which type of cell the organelle is present in, and offer an extension task to write a paragraph explaining the differences between plant and animal cell structure. Feel free to edit to suit your learning objectives and share!
