This lesson resource has been designed to help students studying the changes to the iron and steel industry. It can be used with the full spectrum of ability. If you like this resource, I have also produced a worksheet and a card sort on this topic. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a 22 slide presentation. This beautifully illustrated resource includes information slides, starters, plenaries, video links, diagrams, flash animation and a variety of different tasks and activities. The PP begins with an introduction, which explains why there was an increased demand for iron and steel in this period. The rest of the PP looks in turn at the introduction of each new method of iron and steel production and its impact on the Industrial Revolution. In terms of tasks and activities, I have created a variety for you to choose from. The PP includes two alternative starters. The section on Abraham Darby is followed up with a labelling activity as well as two source based questions on the significance of Iron Bridge. I have also included a table summary exercise, which focuses on each of the new methods of iron and steel production and gets students to draw out the key information. This can be done together as a class as you study each section or individually. Alternatively, I have also included a quiz section which could be used as a plenary or for a question and answer session. The last activity is a source based question on the importance of the iron and steel industry to the growth of Britain's Industrial Revolution. The aims and objectives for this lesson are: Theme: Why did Britain have an industrial revolution 1750 - 1900? Know: Why did Britain's iron and steel industry change 1700 - 1900?

Seating Planner - Science Classroom

Seating plans are great tool to help you learn the names of your students and sit them according to the data you’ve been given for your students. This great resource is designed to be used as a seating planner for a typical science classroom. Simply pick the layout which best matches your room and then customise the slide. You can then then copy and paste the slide to create a set for your timetable. When you purchase this resource you will be able to download a Mircosoft PowerPoint which includes eight slides and a title page. Each slide has a standard science classroom layout. On each table there are two name boxes. Simply delete the text and add your pupils names. Please see previews for more information. The last two slides offer advice on where to sit students based upon research on ‘attention zones’ and the amount of information students retain. When moving the tables around your template, it sometimes easier to group them together. Once complete, you can beam your new seating plan on your IWB to help you learn their names and so that everyone knows where they are sitting. Kind Regards Roy
