Cells, batteries and FUEL CELLS - whole lesson plus example exam questions

(2)
A lesson (double) covering all content for GCSE combined/Chemistry for cells, batteries and fuel cells 3 exam questions to use as assessment, some recommended as part of the lesson plan, others for extension Power Point is easy to follow with student tasks throughout to make lesson interactive (most answers given as part of presentation) Based on AQA but transferable across other specifications

OCR A level Chem Module 6.1 Aromatic compounds, carbonyls and acids assessment and self-assessment

(0)
A 54 mark assessment made up of 14 multiple choice questions and the rest long answer questions The self assessment sheet breaks down each question by topic so students can quickly see which topics they are confident in and which topics require further work. I use the self-assessments in a similar way to PLCs and ask the students to keep them in their notes to refer to as a starting point for revision

Reversible reactions, equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle PP and activity

(1)
A PP covering the AQA specification for Chemistry module 5.6.2 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The activity is to support the powerpoint and can be a whole class, group task or independent task (answers are provided). I have included some application questions to help students to link prior learning and extend understanding as well as help them to think outside the box. The PP is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. Each sub-topic includes a few quick multiple choice questions (MCQ) to assess students learning (AFL) Topics covered: Reversible reactions Energy changes and reversible reactions Equilibrium Effect of changing conditions on equilibrium (HT) Effect of changing concentration (HT) Effect of temperature (HT) Effect of pressure (HT)

The skills on the front page are linked to Doddle skills (https://www.doddlelearn.co.uk/app/login) However please feel free to remove the codes to make them generic. I have aimed the booklet at year 9 however the activities are transferable across KS3 and KS4 The activities should support students through their science education and help them to get used to terminology they will need for the required practicals at GCSE and A level

Transform your Science department into Hogwarts for a week and have lessons full of wizarding fun and excitement whilst also extending students scientific understanding. Resources include: 1 - Poster - To advertise your week 2 - Vision and plan - An overview of how we organised our week with suggested activities and ways to involve all year groups 3 - Letter of acceptance - We gave one to each tutor group in preparation for the week and also printed loads out to come flying out of our homemade chimney (see photos) 4 - Schedule template - The schedule shows how we organised the weeks and also has the jobs for people to volunteer for in order to prepare resources and decorations for the week 5 - Instructions for elephants toothpaste (part of potions) 6 - Assignments - Print out double sided and hand out to students as part of a week long quiz, we put together certificates for students who completed each quiz and the aim was to complete all the quizzes by the end of the week and earn a certificate in each wizarding discipline (herbology, potions, transfiguration, charms and divination) - a good literacy activity to add tot he week 7 - Instructions for flame tests (part of potions) 8 - A selection of photos from our week for inspiration In addition our entire department dressed up as characters from the books for the whole week We had Harry Potter themed awards for budding scientists and for those who really stood out we organised a trip with the English department to The Harry Potter Experience to learn about the making of the films. All in all it is a great week and a lot of fun, plus everybody loves Harry Potter!

Momentum (HT) Skeleton PP for AQA Combined Science (Physics topic 6.5.5

(0)
A very simple PP covering the AQA specification for Physics module 6.5.5 of the new AQA combined science Trilogy specification. The resource is designed to help reduce your planning time by providing you with the main specification points for each topic so you can focus on making lessons creative and engaging. The resource is free as it is so small and basic. the PPs covering the rest of the course are more detailed and cover larger parts of the spec. Momentum is a Higher tier only topic so thought I would do it as a stand alone PP.

A quick activity that could start revision or be used from the start of the year to allow students to quickly monitor their progress. I set students different topics as part of their independent work and have reference copies of the mark schemes in my lab for them to use once they have completed the questions It is a good way to monitor and motivate independent work as well as remind students of the volume of content they need to know for their final exams.
