Miss Smith Teaches

I create a range of lessons using drawings and animations that keep pupils engaged and develops their understanding by relating complex scientific content to relatable every day items and scenarios.

Food Tests - Visual Revision Aids

(0)
Each slide is a visual representation of the food test for Biology with a drawing to help them remember what’s what: Benedict’s test for sugar - drawing of BENEDICT Cumberbatch as Dr Strange eating a doughnut (sugar). He also has a blue and red costume which can help them remember that the reagent turns from blue to brick red if sugar is present. Iodine test for starch -drawing of iodine being dripped onto an unamused piece of bread (where it turns blue-black) Biuret test for protein - drawing of a purple steak (***P***urple, ***P***rotein) Ethanol test for lipids - drawing of a block of cheese (lipid) getting drunk (ethanol) All slides have a dyslexic-friendly background. I hope you enjoy. (Colours and text go a bit funny in the preview, but will correct themselves once downloaded)

Diffusion Lesson for KS3

(0)
Diffusion lesson for KS3 students. Includes useful animations, drawings, and links to real-life scenarios that really help pupils (especially low-attaining students) access the information and stay engaged. Because there are quite a few animations and some of them are automatic, I suggest doing a full run-through of the PowerPoint at least once before the lesson so you can get a feel for what is coming up next. To use the timer on the first page, simply click on it while in presentation mode and the cream circle will gradually turn purple over the five minutes, a bell will sound when the time is up.

Carbon Stores

(0)
Simple A4 sheet that shows all of the carbon stores. Students can either be handed the sheet and add information about each store as they learn it (e.g. the % of carbon that is stored in each), or the image can simply be used in presentations or as a poster just for simple clarification.
