Periodic Table Research Task
DaraWetton

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!)
Electrolysis Bundle
DaraWetton

Electrolysis Bundle

3 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.
C5 Chemical Changes Revision Summary Sheet/Mat
DaraWetton

C5 Chemical Changes Revision Summary Sheet/Mat

(0)
Revision mat/summary sheet for C5 Chemical Changes (AQA). Includes questions on reactivity series, metals & acids, extraction of metals, acids & bases, salts (& naming salts), acids & alkalis, neutralisation, dissociation, pH, and strong and weak acids.
Electrolysis (C6) Revision Summary Sheet/Mat
DaraWetton

Electrolysis (C6) Revision Summary Sheet/Mat

(0)
Revision summary sheet/mat for Electrolysis - created with AQA GCSE Chemistry C6 topic in mind. Including Electrolysis Equipment, Changes at the Electrodes, Predicting Products of Aqueous Solutions, Extraction of Aluminium and Electrolysis of Brine.
Organelle 'Guess Who' Worksheet
DaraWetton

Organelle 'Guess Who' Worksheet

(0)
'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!
Digestive System Assembly Activity/Challenge
DaraWetton

Digestive System Assembly Activity/Challenge

(1)
I laminated and cut out the images/names/functions of different organs of the digestive system then asked students to assemble a whole digestive system with correct labels. I used this as a competition by splitting students into 2 teams, with the winners being the first to assemble all the images and labels correctly. I created this according to the AQA Trilogy GCSE specification but you could edit it to use keywords from other specifications e.g. duodenum. You could also use it with AQA Activate 2 (year 8).
Naming Scientific Apparatus
DaraWetton

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.
Predicting Products of Electrolysis (of Solutions)- Worksheet and Powerpoint Lesson
DaraWetton

Predicting Products of Electrolysis (of Solutions)- Worksheet and Powerpoint Lesson

(0)
Lesson powerpoint and worksheet I created on how to predict the products of electrolysis of (aqueous) solutions. This was created for a low-mid ability Y10 group for AQA separate science GCSE, but is transferrable to all GCSE specifications that cover electrolysis. The challenge questions involve writing half-equations, which is a skill tested in the higher-tier exams, but you could choose a different challenge question if your group will be doing the foundation paper. I have added an additional worksheet where students identify the product left in solution, if applicable. You could also remove the lead bromide worked examples, or add more challenging compounds such as copper sulfate or sulfuric acid. This lesson was created using the TEEP cycle framework, as this is what my school uses (hence the TEEP indicators in the top left of each slide), but you can remove these if you want to. Please comment and review to let me know what you think!
Chemical Formulae Worksheet
DaraWetton

Chemical Formulae Worksheet

(0)
Worksheet created for a Y7 lesson on writing/interpreting chemical formulae. The formatting and subscript lettering is the same as on the main preview image, not on the other previews as TES messes these up for some reason!
Conservation of Energy (P1) Revision Summary Sheet
DaraWetton

Conservation of Energy (P1) Revision Summary Sheet

(0)
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.
KS3 Neutralisation Worksheet - Bee & Wasp Stings
DaraWetton

KS3 Neutralisation Worksheet - Bee & Wasp Stings

(0)
Worksheet I created and used for a KS3 revision lesson on acids and alkalis, but could be used for a neutralisation lesson. Created with AQA Activate 1 in mind, but could be used up with other specifications or up to GCSE if needed. All images sourced under CC0 license, free for commercial use with no attribution required. This resource may work well if paired with this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rznIgkRcZZE&t=1s.
Plant Life Cycle (Pollination, Fertilisation, Germination, Seed Dispersal)
DaraWetton

Plant Life Cycle (Pollination, Fertilisation, Germination, Seed Dispersal)

(0)
Template for students to construct their own plant life cycle. Images (all CC0, no attribution required & free for commercial use) are provided relating to an apple tree, for students to cut and stick to their template, or they could draw their own in the boxes provided. You could also give them only the images, and ask them to draw their own cycle. A completed cycle is included, either to review students’ order of events before they stick them in, as a scaffold to help students draw the events, or for if you only want students to annotate the diagram. Questions on pollination and seed dispersal are included. Designed with KS3 AQA Activate 1 in mind, but applicable to most KS3 schemes or could easily be edited to make it suitable for your own class/scheme.
Atomic Structure Questions (for Information Hunt)
DaraWetton

Atomic Structure Questions (for Information Hunt)

(0)
Worksheet I created to use with my atomic structure information hunt sheets. Designed for OCR 21st Century (C2 - Chemical Patterns) but works with other specifications, e.g. AQA C1. I followed this up with the ‘Chase the Elements’ activity which can be found here on TES by another author.
Alloys Information Hunt/Research Activity & Worksheet
DaraWetton

Alloys Information Hunt/Research Activity & Worksheet

(0)
Information sheets for an active learning activity about alloys, accompanied by a research sheet/worksheet to fill in. This was designed with OCR 21st Century Science C4 (Material Choices - Improving the Properties of Materials) in mind, but alloys are covered on many syllabuses and this could easily be adapted. An answer table is included in the PowerPoint so you can get students to self-mark/correct. All images are used under a CC0 license (no attribution required, for personal or commercial use).
Forces at a Distance Worksheet & Extension Task (Mass, Weight and Gravitational Field Strength)
DaraWetton

Forces at a Distance Worksheet & Extension Task (Mass, Weight and Gravitational Field Strength)

(0)
Worksheet I created for Y7 with the AQA Activate 1 - Forces at a Distance topic in mind, although it could be used/adapted for other specifications and year groups. There are 2 worksheets (one has been condensed to 1 page, whereas the other has larger text and boxes) and sheets for the extension task to be placed around the room (all images used on this sheet are under a CC0 license, free for personal or commerical use without attribution). The students will need graph paper to complete the second part of the extension. Hope you and your students enjoy it!
