I am a secondary school science teacher from the North West. All of my resources have had a lot of time and effort put into them which is why they have a small fee attached. Please leave reviews if you find them useful!

Alleles and Punnett Squares

(0)
Activity designed for my Year 8 class to teach them about dominant and recessive genes and Punnett squares. The first few questions test students’ understanding of what dominant and recessive alleles are. Then they must choose one male and female from the profiles and draw four Punnett squares to show the probability of four of their offspring’s characteristics. This activity gives students some independence because they can choose which profiles they want to use and the extension task can simply be to repeat the activity with different profiles. This worksheet went down really well with my class!

Combining Elements

(0)
A resource completely made by myself for a lesson on combining elements to make compounds, including how to name compounds. Designed to be printed double sided, 2 to 1 page so then when folded it can be glued in to their books as a booklet. There are 3 clear learning outcomes that are stated on the sheet with questions for each. I have also attached the powerpoint to go with it as well. The 3 learning outcomes are: (O1)- Define the term ‘compound’ (O2)- Recognise how compounds are formed and named (O3)- Interpret the ratio of atoms and formula of compounds. Could be used with KS3 or a low ability KS4 class. A molymod kit will be needed for the starter activity.
