I am a super dyslexic teacher, with a dash of ADD, all my resources are built with access in mind, because honestly, if they were'nt I wouldnt be able to read them. Note the pastel tones, chunking and clear notation ques. As such my resources are also super easy to scaffold or stretch, and definately easy to replicate. Please enjoy, and hang in there, at whatever school you're at, I can guarentee that those kids need you in their lives a lot more than you realise.

Heart Dissection (the ultimate classroom guide sheet!)

Heart Dissection (the ultimate classroom guide sheet!)

(1)
Heart dissection classes are amongst the hardest and most daunting, partly because its difficult, its new with new tools and most of all because our boys have a terrible habit of lying about how squeamish they really are! This single worksheet and one heart between two students is all you need for a top notch quality learning lesson, no slides required! The worksheet shows a butterfly style heart dissection, so called as the front and back are seperated and if performed correctly resembles a gruesome butterfly, you will have access to each blood vessel, all valves and have a ver identifiable structure you can reference to in workbooks. Tips for best practice -Practice by yourself first! -Show each step by webcam onto the big screen, or even better Discord can stream to multiple ipads/tablets on each desk. -Make it a competion, biggest bloodclot found, best dissection, most features correctly identified etc. -Let them mess it up, but show them their success (oh that incision is in the wrong place, but you just found the Aorta!!!)

STEM KS3 Build a bug hotel

(0)
A simple little exercise, students will be briefed on the correct materials to find (some thin bamboo canes are ideal for this) and will make simple bug hotels. Even better if you can arrange a bottle collection in the cafeteria the day or period before! Simple but very effective, the bug hotels will not be pretty but to bugs they are perfect. My class stuck all of ours to an outside wall and it is now home to dozens of different insect species. Students will usually finish building theirs inside of a 20 mins, however the challenge then is to make them look pretty and attractive to bugs, ie: bright colours and landing pads! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!

Touching on the rather sad subject of OAP's that cannot afford heating in their homes, this lesson see's students exploring how homes could be effectively insulated and applying the knowledge in a relatable way to an elderly loved one who could benefit from the advice. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!

The MOTHER-OF-ALL-DEBATES is included with this bundle, students will take time learning the facts then let the learning fly in the final lesson. Students will never forget how they learned about renewable and fossil fuel energy! Top-tips Manage the quiet ones, encourage and reward their opinions, the louder students and the budding activists will take care of themselves. Let them know there’s a debate to get ready for, set them homework for research on debates, energy resources and practice constantly how you want them to argue.

KS3 Geology (Igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary)

Recently updated! This lesson in current use has received overwhelmingly positive feedback, thank you to everyone who helped in the development! Love this lesson, my degree is in environmental science and getting the kids hands on and identifying rocks is the best way to go about it, you don’t necessarily require samples for this, but it does amplify the learning and engagement by a long way. Don’t forget to throw in a few geology jokes, I mean, there’s loads, almost to a fault, you might have to dig up some up, some are a bit schist, but its gneiss to try and the kids will learn to take nothing for Granite.

Every year and sometimes every term you get at least 5 kids piping up demanding elephants toothpaste, they've all seen it in youtube and now they want it first hand, hey, who can argue with the demand. This lesson takes that high demand practical and makes them earn it, first to complete one task and correctly answer whatever question about catalysts earns the soap, the second might earn the catalyst, the third the conical flask... CAUTION: I'f you're anything like me you'll want bigger, better, more colours... start small, then build up... or risk a multicoloured mountain all over the ceiling and desk! https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/matthewharman777 Be weird, be funny, be gross, have fun, play, stick to your routines and find that little spark of madness we all have and electrocute the class with it!
