Germination

(0)
Pupils’ starting point, prior or prerequisite knowledge: KS2: Life cycles Pupils learn that plants and animals reproduce as part of their life cycle and that in every life cycle there are distinct processes and stages. They begin to understand how reproduction is important to the survival of the species. KS3: Previous lessons about pollination and structures of a plant. Possible misconceptions about: Seeds/pollen being the same thing All seeds need the same requirements (not sure going to go into that much detail) – all need the same basic requirements however. Detail of key science concepts or skills: Plants need air, water, warmth, and light to be able to grow. A seed has three main parts: embryo – the young root and shoot that will become the adult plant food store – starch for the young plant to use until it is able to carry out photosynthesis seed coat – a tough protective outer covering Inquiry question/s: What conditions are needed for seeds to germinate? What conditions are needed for plants to grow? Pupil learning objectives/outcomes/success criteria: By the end of the lesson the pupils will be able to: Objectives: • What do plants need to grow? • Which conditions are needed for germination to happen? Outcomes: • State the basic requirements for plant growth. • Describe the conditions needed for germination to happen. • Carry out an experiment to investigate the conditions needed for germination to happen.

AQA Chapter 4 - Writing Formula of Salts

(0)
This lesson is a one-off lesson to accompany Chapter 4 of the NEW AQA chemistry course, but could be used by anyone teaching how to work out and write salt formula. It goes through the ionisation of atoms, and how it is related to an atom's position in the periodic table (well the electrons in the outer shell). Keywords: Ionic Salt Acid Equation Symbol Ion Learning Objectives: Write equations for reactions of acids with metal hydroxides, oxides and carbonates Be able to name salts formed Write balanced symbol equations of salt formation

AQA C2.5.2 Making salts from metals or bases

(0)
This is a lesson based on the old chemistry AQA GCSE, however it is still relevant to the new GCSE, and some aspects of the KS3 curriculum. This is a practical based lesson, where students are able to make copper sulfate crystals. The lesson length at my school is 45 minutes, so the step for acquiring the crystals from solution was skipped, but if you have a longer lesson you can easily add it in. Content covered, or re-capped: - Balancing equations - Making salts from metals and bases - Endothermic/Exothermic Reactions Contains numeracy (e.g. balancing equations) and literacy (e.g. key words anagrams) tasks too!
