#### Simplified Periodic Table

(19)
I can never seem to find the right periodic table for my students so have made one ideal for KS3/4. 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. UK spelling. Relative atomic mass is shown above the chemical symbol. Includes livermorium and flerovium, moscovium etc. Colour coded groups. Groups 1-8 labelled.

#### Line of Best Fit

(1)
Teach pupils how to draw the different lines of best fit using this simple worksheet.

#### Continental Drift Alfred Wegener

(0)
Learning Objectives Learn who Alfred Wegener was and state the theory of continental drift. Describe the crust as broken into pieces called tectonic plates. Explain that convection currents within the Earth’s mantle driven by heat released by natural radioactive processes because the plates to move at relative speeds of a few centimeters per year. Evaluate the evidence for continental drift and explain why it was not accepted at the time. Settler: Think pair share – Were all scientists successful? Introduce students to the storys of Mendeleevs early life, Alfred Wegeners life and/or Nikolai Tesla. Starter: Demonstration: Plate tectonic demonstration with biscuits and syrup – see video Practical: Main 1: Alfred Wegener Song https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T1-cES1Ekto Explain tectonic plates and continental drift Alfred Wegener SciShow Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbU809Cyrao Main 2: Pupils answer What is the Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift. And what evidence did he have for it? (4) Alfred Wegener’s theory of continental drift was not accepted by the scientists at the time. Why? (2) AFL: Homework Produce a fake social media page for Alfred Wegener, what sort of things would he be posting about? Some people have already had a go, what would you post about if you were him?

#### AQA GCSE CHEMISTRY OBJECTIVES

(1)
All of the syllabus converted into easy to use objective slides. Copy and paste into your own power points or give to the pupils to use for revision.

#### Respiratory system worksheet pack

(12)
A series of worksheets used for teaching respiration. Including labelling the diagram ( I give the pupils page numbers in our dictionaries and they have to figure out the rest themselves). Gap fill exercises and card sorts. Observation notes for a pluck dissection. Lots of challenging resources and pupil led activities designed for an observation lesson.

#### Metamorphic Rocks

(0)
Learning Objectives Be able to name some metamorphic rocks Be able to describe how metamorphic rocks are formed Settler: Starter: Test knowledge from previous lesson. Demonstration: Practical: Main 1: See lesson sheet Main 2: AFL: Splat in lesson sheet Homework

#### Earth's Early Atmosphere

(1)
Learning Objectives ✤ State the composition of clean, dry air ✤ Explain the changes in the Earth that led to oceans forming. ✤ Relate the Earths early atmosphere with that of Mars or Venus today. ✤ Explain the changes in the Earths atmosphere today.

#### KS3 Science Particles Year 7 - 10 lessons!

(0)
A set of 10 lessons for teaching particles to year 6 or 7. All key behaviours explained with lots of practicals. Powerpoints including with key questions. Covers: Particles Particle model Changing state Gases Water Mixtures Filtering and evaporation Chromatography Distillation

#### Igneous Rocks 1

(0)
Learning Objectives Be able to name some igneous rocks Be able to describe how igneous rocks are formed? Explain the difference between intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks. Settler: Starter: Show pupils some igneous rocks, stress which ones they should be able to name later as examples. From the pictures pupils should identify some trends eg crystals and colour. The images can be printed and laminated to do this exercise independently. Demonstration: Practical/ Main 1: Pupils carry out analysis of the igneous rock samples, using naked eye, magnifying glasses/camera phones, porosity test and acid test. Main 2: Pupils to learn the difference between intrusive and extrusive igneous rocks using ppt. AFL: Questions from page 91 SPLAT Homework Read the geology.com article about igneous rocks and how they are formed.

#### Sedimentary Rocks

(0)
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

#### Distillation of Air

(0)
Learning Objectives ✤ Understand that liquids can be separated by distillation according to their boiling points. ✤ Describe the separation of oxygen and nitrogen from liquid air by fractional distillation Settler: Starter: Demonstration: Can show the oxygen in the jar demo with the water rising then ask the kids to explain why this demo does not show that the air is 20% oxygen as they are often taught but is due to pressure differences instead. Practical: Main 1: Use ppt. Main 2: AFL: Most pupils will struggle with the concept but can be used as an introduction to year 10 - use questions from year 10 textbook to assess. Homework

#### AQA C1.3 Metals and their uses

(0)
A collection of resources to help with teaching AQA C1.3 Metals and their uses. Includes card sorts ready made in small and large - print these on coloured card and laminate for the best effect.

#### AQA P1 Progress Self Assessment forms

(0)
Covers every topic in P1. These google forms are designed to allow you to either print or mail direct to you students and they can self assess what they know against the required specification. When completed either within the email or in an internet browser (works perfectly on mobile devices) the evaluation from the class is sent directly back to you where a breakdown of the responses is built into the form. (responses - summary of responses). **UPDATE** Google form versions can be accessed through the word document. Each form only takes pupils a few minutes to fill out and are much quicker than traditional Red/amber/green self assessments. Ideally complete after the lesson is taught, at the beginning of any revision period and at the end of a revision session.
