I am a chemistry teacher, I spend lots of time making resources and decided to share them here on TES. Most are free or have free sample versions, but the best and most detailed ones that I'm particular proud of I sell for around £2-£5.

This is a resource pack with a range of level ladders for marking practical investigations.
Each word document contains a slightly different arrangement of assessment points so hopefully you will be able to pick the most suitable for your investigation. See the descriptions below...
1. This assesses all sections of a practical investigation including method writing, identifying variables, plotting graphs, writing conclusions and evaluations.
2. This assesses just method writing and is set out in a similar style to KS4 coursework method writing mark schemes such as ISA’s.
3. This assesses method writing and identification of variables.
4. This assesses method writing, identification of variables, and graph plotting (most appropriate for line graphs rather than bar).
5. This assesses graph plotting, writing conclusions and evaluations.
NEW RESOURCE ADDED!
6. This is a level ladder for method writing, and gives the students a percentage of how 'AWESOME' their method is. I made this as schools are still wrapping their heads around the new GCSE levels and the consequent impact on KS3 levels.

This is based on an old worksheet, some elements of this task are rather tricky and would probably be best for med - high ability KS4. The graph plotting could be done on computers.
This task is suitable for students at Grade E-A however I have removed these grades so that you can use the old or new grading system.

This is a worksheet I made to help my students to practice the graphs skills required for the ISA controlled assessment, I've also included questions that regularly come up on paper two.
This sheet has been done in the context of testing how temperature affects the viscosity of oils however this could easily be adapted to suit other investigations.
I intend on uploading a mark scheme for this after I have delivered this lesson.

These are question cards on Subatomic Structure and include questions on protons, neutrons, electrons, charges of subatomic particles, structure of the atom, relative masses of subatomic particles, relative atomic mass, atomic number, calculation the numbers of subatomic particles, electron structure and ions.
These are made to go with the Science Revision Board Game I made which I use with KS3 and KS4 students to revise for their end of unit tests or exams. The board game and some sample question cards are freely available at
https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/science-revision-board-game-free-version-11445205
If the game board isn’t quite how you’d like it, or if you want your own question cards you could download my ‘Make Your Own Revision Board Game Resource Pack’ which can be purchased at
https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/make-your-own-revision-board-game-resource-pack-11445322
For the teacher, this is quick and easy revision activity that requires a one-time set up and then it can be used time and time again! Very little effort is required by you and the students can happily spend all lesson playing the game (if you let them) leaving you free to do what you fancy! My students love it and I get chance to sit down with the students who need extra help, or catch up on a bit of marking.
To get started:
• Print the board game on white A3 paper.
• Print the question cards on blue paper/card, cut them up and pop them in little bags.
• Print the hazard cards on yellow paper/card, cut them up and pop them in little bags.
• Laminate the board game (optional but makes the game last longer)
• Get a little stash of counters or items that could be used as the player pieces e.g. coloured paper circles, novelty rubbers, little model etc
• Get some dice.
For a class of 30 I’ve found that 6 groups of 5 work quite well, therefore you’d need 6 game boards and 6 packs of cards.
For each unit taught I’ve made my own quiz cards so the students can test themselves on the unit content, I have quite a few different units which I am in the processing of uploading to TES now. Keep your eyes peeled for the bundles I am putting together.
