Experienced Science teacher and Head of Department specialising predominantly in Physics at GCSE and A-level. My resources are designed as complete and ready-to-go lessons for any science teacher but are particularly suited to NQTs or those who are not 100% confident at the material yet as explanations and activities are very clearly described and answers provided wherever possible. At KS4 and KS5, lessons prepare students for their exams by incorporating exam application throughout.

Year 7 Metals lesson 4 - Displacement reactions
QuasiEntropistQuasiEntropist

Year 7 Metals lesson 4 - Displacement reactions

(2)
Lesson 4 in the year 7 metals topic looking at displacement reactions of metals. After learning about what a displacement reaction is, students complete a practical and use their observations to determine the order of reactivity of their sample metals. Students also learn about the applications of displacement reactions e.g. sacrificial metals on oil rigs.
Year 7 Metals lesson 2 - Reactivity series of metals
QuasiEntropistQuasiEntropist

Year 7 Metals lesson 2 - Reactivity series of metals

(1)
Lesson 2 in the year 7 metals topic looking at the reactivity series of metals. Students learn about the reactivity of group 1, 2 and transition metals. Students complete a practical observing different metal reactions and determine, based on their observations, the order of reactivity of their sample metals.
Year 7 Metals lesson 6 - Reacting metals with oxygen and Yield
QuasiEntropistQuasiEntropist

Year 7 Metals lesson 6 - Reacting metals with oxygen and Yield

(1)
Lesson 6 in the year 7 metals topic looking at reacting metals with oxygen. Students complete a practical where they burn magnesium in air and compare the mass of the magnesium before burning to the mass of magnesium oxide after the reaction. Students write a word equation for the reaction and use this to explain why the mass of the magnesium has increased after the burning.

Year 7 Metals - 7 lesson bundle

7 Resources
This bundle contains all 7 lessons with their accompanying resources for the metals topic at KS3. The lessons are: L1 - Metals ores and their uses; L2 - Reactivity series of metlas; L3 - Extraction of metals; L4 - Displacemet reactions of metals; L5 - Alloys and corrosion; L6 - Reacting metals with oxygen; L7 - Testing for metal ions.
Year 7 Metals lesson 5 - Alloys and corrosion
QuasiEntropistQuasiEntropist

Year 7 Metals lesson 5 - Alloys and corrosion

(1)
Lesson 5 in the year 7 metals topic looking at alloys and corrosion. Students learn about alloys, their properties compared to pure metals and conditions for corrosion. They set up a longer term practical using nails in test tubes to test for the ideal conditions for iron nails to rust. This can be left and monitored over several weeks.
Year 7 Metals lesson 7 - Testing for metal ions
QuasiEntropistQuasiEntropist

Year 7 Metals lesson 7 - Testing for metal ions

(0)
Lesson 7 in the year 7 metals topic looking at testing samples to identify metal ions. Students complete flame tests and precipitate tests to identify different metal ion samples. they also learn and discuss applications of these reactions e.g. fireworks.
