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.

Life cycles and habitats revision test

Life cycles and habitats revision test

Testing pupils on a wide array of questions this is in two parts the first covering Life cycles, the second Habitats. The 7 characteristics of life, the life cycle of a flowering plant and a frog are covered, along with questions on pollination. In the second section pupils describe habitats, suggest habitats for different animal, use a key, a food web and draw a bar chart. Takes between 40 minutes and an hour.

Basic circuits multiple choice test

Basic circuits multiple choice test

This is a set of 20 multiple choice questions covering electricity, circuit symbols, series and parallel circuits, basic reading of an ammeter and prediction of the brightness of bulb in different circuits and 3 truth tables to fill out. It is easy to peer asses and suits the requirements for KS3 and Common entrance as well as a basic start for GCSE. Also suitable for middle school

Basic circuits and series and parallel introduction

Basic circuits and series and parallel introduction

This is for pupils looking at circuits around year 7. It is suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance. It reviews/introduces basic circuit symbols and then has different circuits to make to compare the brightness of bulbs. A great way to get the pupils making their circuits accurately. They are then asked to find out about series and parallel circuits and classify the circuits in the experiment into these two groups. After that there are a couple of questions about the advantages of parallel circuits over series circuits.

voltage, resistance and current investigation

voltage, resistance and current investigation

An introduction into current in a circuit and the way changing the resistance and voltage in a circuit changes the current. There is space to define voltage and resistance, an investigation using resistance wire, space to draw a graph and then an investigation into current around a series circuit. This is all in one 4 page handout. The fifth page has graduated differentiation questions to use with the graph from the resistance wire experiment with walk, jog and run questions to get every pupil stretched to their current level of ability. Suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance.

And and OR circuit truth table worksheet

And and OR circuit truth table worksheet

A introduction to AND and OR circuits suitable for KS3 and ISEB common entrance with the truth tables leading the pupils to understand the names of the two types of circuit. There is then a graduated differentiation task which is given on the third page of the file with walk, jog and run task based on truth tables. You can do this as an experimental activity or a thinking one!

Density questions

Density questions

This is a selection of questions about density. The first section covers the use of the density formula with some guidance on how to use any 2 of the 3 values to calculate the third. There is then space for some revision/summary notes on this. The second section tests experimental techniques and includes some calculations based on the measurements made in the experiment. This is linked to the Hoppers physics pack available free at https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/Hoppersphysics with the learning objective shown by each question noted in the question to allow students to look up the relevant work. This work is appropriate for KS3 or Common entrance. There are 8 pages of questions.
