New AQA Triolgy Diagnostic Chemistry, Biology and Physics

3 Resources
Microsoft PowerPoint required! 150 assessment questions to assess competence in the new AQA Trilogy specification. If Macros are enabled the assessment will mark itself and suggest areas that need developing. Feedback can be printed and used for extension work, independent learning or homework. Hard copies of the assessment have been provided in case the ICT lets you down or you need this for a cover lesson with a non science specialist. I hope this saves you lots of marking and identifies areas your students are weak.

Simple Combustion practical - Easy to resource

(0)
A PowerPoint with supporting instructions, starter and extension activities. Best if you use tealight candles. Encourages students to consider variables and to make accurate measurements. Students draw a graph to show their results. If students are difficult to motivate then ask them to estimate how long a candle would last in a specific volume (i.e. 300ml beaker) which they will have to produce a graph to extrapolate or interpolate to find this out. You could test a 300ml beaker at the end to test this. The extension activity promotes higher level scientific thought. It is unknown if the carbon dioxide smothers the candle or if the oxygen runs out first. Most students will say the taller candle as this will last longer!

Cloning and Genetic Modification with Haribo

(0)
A simple activity to model cloning and genetic engineering using Haribo starmix. Student instructions are included. May also wish to buy some flumps. Ensure lab is clean and advisable to wear gloves. I found the smaller Haribo starmix bags to be better as the students can handle these. Must check there are two eggs or have a supply of spare eggs. Get students to describe the process back to you as a plenary. Enjoy.

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.
