Elements to Atoms and the Periodic Table

(2)
2-3 engaging lessons that make learning the periodic table more accessible. Ideal for low to middle ability groups. Students begin with finding the location of elements in the periodic table using the grid references (print 2 slides per sheet to keep costs low and have couple of examples of elements to hand - Zinc, Copper, Carbon, Aluminium). Students then learn about the structure of atoms and link this to the layout of the periodic table. Students finish by drawing atoms and consolidating learning through a game of Atom Trumps.

Requires Microsoft PowerPoint. 150 Multiple choice questions from the new specification. If Macros are enabled when prompted at the start of the presentation, the powerpoint will mark itself and give feedback (topics of weakness and more specific question feedback). Could be used at the start and end of the year to measure progress. Students can print results on slide 52 and use the feedback for independent learning or homework. I hope this saves you lots of marking. I have included hard copies of the questions and answers in case the ICT lets you down or you want to use it for a cover lesson.

Employability Skills - Career planning - Interview Skills - Speed dating

(0)
Two activities that promote good interview technique, positive responses and body language. Activity 1: sitting in pairs, students ask the example interview questions to their partner. The partner responds, they flip the card over (print both sides) and reveal the true meaning of the interview question as well as the perfect response. Students compare their response to the suggested response. Activity 2: With students in pairs, sit one on the outside (interviewer) and one on the inside of the desk (interviewee). The interviewer asks the questions provided and takes notes. After 4-5 minutes call 'time' and the students on the inside move to the next interviewer. When students return to the first interviewer they swap and become the interviewer. Worksheet: Interview candidates give their worksheet to the interviewer and receive a score for their body language during the interview. These activities will last 2+ lessons depending on class size.
