Currently selling and providing free resources for all three sciences, predominantly for GCSE, although there are some KS3 and A level chemistry resources available. Lots of the resources focus on differentiation and exam technique as I feel there is a profession- wide weakness in these areas.

for KS3 or GCSE: naming the elements in compounds differentiated worksheet

(0)
the students have to state which elements and how many atoms of each at in the compound. there are 15 examples for them to try, getting progressively harder differentiation is at 3 levels: easier as described above, middle: the students attempt to name the compounds given the formulae as well as above; and harder: the students attempt to produce the formulae, given the name of the compound as well as above SUGGESTION: for KS3 - give only the first 10 examples ideas for use: I used as a homework, but also: part of your lesson; cover; catch up for absent students Answers included

(0)
Story with characters, such as Rogen, Protesterone and Lieutenant Hormone, loosely based on West side story as a conflict between Ovary land and Pituicity. The story is made easier for foundation students by having the main points underlined and colour-coded for different characters (hormones). Comprehension questions are included to test the learning after the story. A recording of the story is embedded in the powerpoint for your convenience. objectives: subject knowledge, revision technique, consolidation differentiation: foundation and higher tier stories and questions good for: part of a lesson, e.g. starter, revision, homework, part of a cover lesson. could be used for more able KS3 PLEASE NOTE: this resource is included in the foundation and higher menstrual cycle and contraception lessons, if you prefer to purchase this with the other resources too
Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson
LawrenceLLawrenceL

Negative feedback, Adrenaline and thyroxine for higher tier GCSE Biology exam technique lesson

(1)
This is a full lesson with prescriptive instructions, aimed at AQA and Edexcel specifications (references included), but would work for other boards. The main objectives are to research the information and to practice use of command words and general exam technique. The students are given exam style questions and in groups, are to research the information required to produce 'perfect answers' They then assess the answers given to different questions by others and make adjustments to the answers, as necessary. Exam questions are tailored to ability and there is a focus throughout on exam command words. The lesson ends with the students attempting to assign a grade to the exam questions they have been exposed to during the lesson and there is a suggested homework, where the students produce follow-up notes. Suggested 'indicative content' is included in the teacher notes, but are intended to guide the teacher, rather than for the students to compare given answers with. However, this could be used for this purpose, if you prefer. Also included is a slide that gives notes needed to answer the questions, if you are a bookless school. This may be projected up, depending on the layout of your classroom, or printed.
3 lessons: qualitative analysis for GCSE chemistry, including flame spectroscopy (AQA focus)

3 lessons: qualitative analysis for GCSE chemistry, including flame spectroscopy (AQA focus)

(0)
The first lesson is about review of solubility of salts rules (with a song) and the required practical for qualitative analysis for AQA - this has been differentiated and organised according to practical ability of the students and reducing resource use (e.g. microchemistry is used), but you may prefer to organise it a different way. The second lesson focusses on the results of testing and associated equations, including ionic. Here the students are given substances and have to create questions for a class quiz, the quiz being done at the end of the lesson. The substances have been chosen to give to students of different ability and potential examples are included, if you prefer a more teacher led lesson. The third lesson is Flame Spectroscopy. Suggested home works are included, including 'chemical analysis lift the flap', which is sold separately. Opportunities for exam technique are included, with a focus on command words.
KS3 and GCSE Genetic modification lesson
LawrenceLLawrenceL

KS3 and GCSE Genetic modification lesson

(0)
based on SMART KS3 course and AQA Biology course. References included. The students are given a task card, success criteria and information and develop a drama. The task card suggests the characters that might be needed, but you can ask the students to use their own characters if you feel this is best for them. As all the students will be doing the same topic, my suggestion is that they create and perform in the same lesson. All information is differentiated to four levels, so is suitable from lower ability KS3 right the way up to higher ability GCSE objectives: subject knowledge, creativity, collaboration, presentation skills alternative: the resources could be used to create a model/ story or whatever if you have some shy students
