I am relatively new to selling resources on TES, so if you like something, please review it! I am constantly updating and developing new resources - I like to concentrate the majority of my time on developing scientific skills through the use of practical work and application - conveniently this sits well with the new GCSE. I also am involved in developing schemes for the new GCSE (at my school) so will post anything I can to help others in this area.

Aseptic techniques/culturing bacteria/testing antibiotics *BIG PRACTICAL*

(0)
Resources developed as part of a *BIG PRACTICAL*. These are designed to practice a skill - usually using a preliminary investigation - then a full investigation write up. These are tailored toward the way the new GCSE (2016 on wards) is designed to test practical skills as well as context. First lesson Resources: aseptic techniques practice, pupils-account-of-aseptic-techniques (+ppt) Practical: Pupils culture a known bacterial both using aseptic techniques, with an aim of achieving zero contamination. Activities order: Teacher intro, practical write up using frame and practical, KILLER CHALLENGE correcting a poor aseptic method Second lesson Resources: Testing antibiotics (+ppt) Practical: Pupils complete the same method of culturing known bacterial broths using aseptic techniques but add antibiotic disks. Activity order: Look at plates from previous lesson and look if they have been successful and what they need to improve. Practical and write up. Third lesson Resources: Antibiotic plate sheet, Diameter-zone-of-inhibition (+ppt) Activity order: Look at antibiotic plates, Complete sheet looking at antibiotics and comparing zones of inhibition, calculating zones of inhibition for comparison.

These are tailored toward the way the new GCSE (2016 on wards) is designed to test practical skills as well as context. First lesson Resources: Reduction-Reactions (+ppt) Practical: Pupils complete a practical looking at the reduction of iron in iron oxide using carbon on a match. Activities order: Starter looking at the reactivity series and the order of metals. First section looks at those found in their natural state and not in compounds. Then move on to look at those above hydrogen and below carbon using practical. Second Resources: Electrolysis (+ppt) Practical: Electrolysis of copper sulphate solution - simplistic Activities order: Introduction the meaning of the term 'lysis' and linking it to electrolysis. How ores are processed to get compounds ready for electrolysis. Electrolysis of sodium chloride and aluminium oxide as examples.

Required Practical AQA 2016 Density of regular and irregular objects

(0)
This is a unit (4 lessons) for filling the AQA required practical although can be easily used for other specifications. The method used are the recommended practical methods published by AQA. The lessons are as follows: 1) Denisty of regular objects 2) Density of irregular objects This has been designed as part of a year 9 scheme of work which have been fully undated to cover the new AQA specification, change in assessment objective weightings and mathematical requirements.
