Full lesson teaching students about the properties of ionic compounds and relating that to their structure. This lesson is pre-made with activities and ready to go, including reflections, video clips, and evaluation activities for higher order thinking.
A template which can be laminated and used to scaffold equation questions for students. The template walks students through how to determine information provided from questions, relate this to equations, rearrange equations, and ultimately solve for answers.
A useful tool which can be used to build confidence in LA students. Laminating this document produces a resource which students can easily use over and over for different equations, and can change their working without feeling under pressure to have correct working in their books.
A Bundle of lessons to cover the AQA Combined science ECHG topic.
A practical heavy focus on a topic which students find engaging and enjoyable. Can be condensed down to around 4 lessons to cover rapidly and effectively.
KS4 lesson taking students through the applications and uses of equations to calculate Ke, GPE, and Ee.
Each equation is introduced in a way where students begin to think about the equations, and how different factors affect the amount of energy in different stores, before students begin to consider the use of equations in an exam context.
Differentiated questions demanding students convert units and consider the form of their answers. What’s more, the final questions require students to interchange values between stores of GPE, Ke, and Ee.
SOW to compliment AQA KS3 Matter scheme.
This full series of lessons is fully equip to tackle the scheme in a logical and challenging fashion. Each lesson is presented from a colourful differentiated powerpoint, with activities and thought provoking questions for students. Practicals are regularly included, as well as interactive and independent activities, and each lesson ends with an opportunity for reflection.
Students greatly enjoyed covering this unit, and other schools would benefit greatly from these resources.
Engaging lesson taking students through the chemical and physical trends of group 7 elements. This lesson includes visual instructions for students when completing displacement reactions for group 7 elements, as well as an observation sheet for their practical experiments.
An enjoyable lesson for what can be a dry topic. This lesson pushes students to think further and understand the trends, opposed to just wrote learning.
Lesson for KS3 properties of metals and non-metals, as well as an introduction to the periodic table.
Activities included - you will need to google a template of the periodic table for the colour coding activity.
A lesson discussing different methods to separate mixtures, before leading students through simple paper chromatography. Follow up activities to the practical are included. A fun lesson with great impact.
AQA Activate Unit 3 resources for the structure of the digestive system, enzyme action, factors affecting enzyme action, and food tests.
These lessons are fully resourced, and guide students through the topic from start to finish. Students are taken through the required practicals using extensive follow up, and each lesson is complimented by regular and thorough reflection points.
A series of 10 lessons to cover the entire AQA trilogy GCSE specification for Triple science, but can easily be used for combined science students. This scheme takes students from atoms, elements and compounds, through mixtures, to then considering the structure of atoms. After this point, students are introduced to the ideas of ions and the structure of the periodic table with reference to subatomic particles. Finally, students then combine all of these ideas to evaluate the reactivity of elements in groups 1, 7 and 0.
There are several opportunities for practical skills to be developed, including:
Group 1 demos
Group 7 displacement reactions
Formation of ionic compounds to demonstrate predicted electron transfer, e.g. combustion of magnesium.
A fun scheme, which has so far proved to promote excellent progress.
A full powerpoint is provided, as well as individual lesson powerpoints. All lessons come with powerpoints. Some have activities omitted - how to find these free activities from TES included in notes.
Please contact for any queries.
Whole lesson on covalent bonding. The only other required resource is a template for students to make their own covalent molecule’s dot-cross diagrams. These can be downloaded for free here. A enjoyable lesson which breaks down a topic which students often find to be tricky.
Whole lesson on Electron structure.
Only other required document is the electron structure periodic table - can be downloaded from ab_science here for free!
A fun lesson, including an excellent electron structure bingo activity which really motivates students - bring your own chocolate prizes!
A bundle of several lessons covering the AQA Chemistry Triple Science Trilogy SOW.
Fun and engaging lessons, with several practical and demonstration opportunities. A mixture of student and teacher led lessons to add variety, all of which promote engagement and will encourage students to become excited in the early stages of their chemistry GCSE.
Each lesson has built in reflection points, and notes to explain where other resources can be obtained for free when necessary.
