Energy stores | Types of energy | Energy transfer

(2)
Topic: Energy / Energy stores / Types of energy Level: GCSE, key stage 4 I am following the AQA science (physics) syllabus but this resource is suitable for anyone teaching KS4 physics on Energy Stores ( or previously known as Different Types of Energy). Resources: 1. Powerpoint slides: 18 slides with clickable items for navigation. Answers to questions in slides reveal upon clicking. I have written “Presenter’s notes” under some slides, mostly about extension ideas and some simple notes on the theory. 2. Notes for pupils: Use this 3 page document as worksheets or handouts. Pupils can take notes during lesson or complete tasks in this editable document. Also, it includes 1 exam style question. 3. Printout: A list of descriptions (clues) for pupils to read and guess which energy store the description is referring to. (This can be cut out and put in a hat for pupils to pick out.) This makes Task 1 in the powerpoint interactive. Hope this resource is helpful for you. Please do let me know if there’s any suggestions for improvement. I aim to upload all my lessons on “Energy and Energy Resources” so that you can have a complete set of lessons for this unit. Be sure to check out this bundle I’ve uploaded for the unit of Energy (107 Slides for £8 only!): https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/energy-energy-transfer-energy-stores-ks4-gcse-science-physics-whole-unit-11891651 Enjoy!

GCSE Physics Equations Display Puzzles

(0)
Physics equations organised by topic on hexagon puzzle displays. This resource is ideal for all pupils studying Edexcel or AQA GCSE physics. All equations are editable so that you can make any minor adjustment to tailor to your syllabus. I’ve printed the equation puzzles on A3 paper and laminated them for wall display. Alternatively, you can print these for pupils on A4 sheets and use these as file dividers by unit! Or print them on A5 sheets and get pupils to stick them in their books.
