Light research

Light research

Internet research questions to go with Key stage 3, common entrance and middle school work on Light. This covers the electromagnetic spectrum, lenses and telescopes as well as the speed of light in different mediums. There are also questions on the structure of the eye and the role of different parts of it. The task usually takes 30 to 40 minutes and can be set to do at home, where internet access is available as well as in lessons. Both pdf and word documents available here.

Light:  Sending messages by light.

Light: Sending messages by light.

Useful for a lesson on different ways we send messages by light, in how we see things or a more general light topic this work sheet provides cross curricular links to maths and history and possibly fundamental British values as well as talking about broadband which means you can spring off into many different routes. The main challenge is for the pupils to independently make a code to send a message in pairs or groups as fast as possible. Often results in some great photos for sticking in workbooks, twitter feeds etc. Make the pupils do the work and get maximum science exposure! Useful for KS 3 and Common entrance GCSE, middle school and older depending on how you work the connections to other topics and subjects.

Hoppers Physics graph pack 1: Bar chart drawing investigations

Hoppers Physics graph pack 1: Bar chart drawing investigations

This pack contains 6 different bar graph drawing activities and some other activities with questions on graphs. Suitable for around year 3 they will work on counting different shapes (the shapes to work with are provided) different coloured shapes as well measuring width, volume (of liquids) and mass (although you can just provide numbers for them to use. They will also work on giving graphs a heading and axes labels. Perfect for cover, to do after an experiment or other task. Full instructions on the first page.

Hoppers Physics graph pack 2: Line graph work

Hoppers Physics graph pack 2: Line graph work

This is an introduction to drawing line graph. All the resources required are included apart from graph paper, which you need for 4 of the tasks. There are 2 bar charts as well as 4 line graphs and other questions on reading a line graph and plotting points. We use these with year 4, KS2 . There is another pack on bar charts and a third on using different scales available on tes resources. Very useful for cover, after experiments or other tasks or when the whole day has gone to pot and you need an easy but constructive lesson. Perimeter calculations and measurement also included. Full instructions included!

Hoppers Physics Graph pack 3: using different scales

Hoppers Physics Graph pack 3: using different scales

This graph pack works with the other two, also available on tes resources to teach the pupils how to use different scales. It starts with a simple bar graph, does an easy line graph and then works 7 more graph tasks with different scales. Helpful questions get the pupils to think about how to represent their data and there are some questions at the end to work through related to the graphs drawn previously. Excellent for cover, this stand alone pack needs no equipment. Also useful after other tasks in lessons, or when you just need an easy lesson at the end of a hard day. We use this with year 5 but would work well on both sides of this.
