History of the atom card sort activity

History of the atom card sort activity

A great challenging activity, split your class into 6 groups, print out on six different colours of paper and gove each group the relevant cards for each scientist in a different colour. My medium ability year 7s were able to delegate tasks within their groups and so complete the whole puzzle in less than 10 minutes - meaning they could then answer the questions on the main card. Includes; Rutherford, Bohr, Democritus, Dalton, Thompson and Higgs so that dates go right up until October 2013, covering 2500 years of chemistry history.

Sedimentary Rocks

Sedimentary Rocks

Learning Objectives Be able to name some sedimentary rocks Explain the processes of weathering, transportation, deposition, sedimentation, cementation Use particle diagrams to explain cementation. Settler: Starter: Demonstration: Demonstration of sedimentary rock sandwich and metamorphic toastie You can do the transportation pipe demo but it isn't very good. Practical: Main 1: Main 2: EITHER: Pupils descibe the sandwich model and explain how it is different. We could compare each others answers to see wether we have learned this OR: Pupils undertake construction company exercise 15 minutes and 5 minutes of discussion at the end. Need to address issues with the vocabulary, many misconceptions come from geography. about weathering and erosion. AFL: Homework Metamorphic rocks worksheet

Quarrying

Quarrying

Learning Objectives ✤ Describe briefly the uses if limestone and how it is quarried. ✤ Consider and evaluate the environmental, social and economic effects of exploiting limestone and producing building materials from it. ✤ Evaluate the developments in using limestone, cement and concrete as building materials, and their advantages and disadvantages over other materials. Settler: Starter: Demonstration: Practical: Main 1: Limestone cycle folder Main 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehBKETtRImk How does cement work? AFL: Homework Take a look at this article: Worlds largest Open pit Mines (Quarrys) To add extra wow factor I found them on google maps for you: • The biggest iron mine • The deepest mine • The deadliest mine Your task after this lesson will be to prepare yourself for a debate on Quarrying - Is it good or bad? The best pupils will research both sides, and this article will give you great perspective. For example Hibbing Minnesota would not exist at all without the local mine as it provides all the jobs and income for the area. There are lots of positive and negative arguments in the text of the article. You may also want to research easier to read websites such as BBC Bitesize.

Simplified Periodic Table

Simplified Periodic Table

I can never seem to find the right periodic table for my students so have made one ideal for all ages. Relative atomic mass is only measured to 1d.p. for elements such as Chlorine. Lanthinoids and Actinoides are ignored. Elements are not given capital letters. IUPAC spelling. Relative atomic mass is shown above the chemical symbol. Includes livermorium and flerovium, moscovium etc Colour coded groups. Groups 1-8 labelled.

Weathering

Weathering

Learning Objectives To describe the three types of weathering, Biological, physical and chemical. To be able to give examples of all three types of weathering. To link the weathering process to the landscape. Use particle diagrams to explain weathering Settler: Starter: Demonstration/Main 1: Draw diagrams to represent the three types of weathering on the board if you are not confident use the textbook. Pupils need to be able to use particle diagrams - in this case particle means rock pieces of any size. Practical: Show the frozen rock breaking demo as an example of freeze thaw. Main 2: Link to the landscapes of Qatar, erratics etc. AFL: Show photos of different types of weathering and ask pupils to identify them
