Puberty - Video & Worksheet

A simple worksheet to go with 'Body Story - Teen Dreams' a 45min docudrama about puberty. I've used this successfully with a yr7 low-literacy group. Go over what they've written as plenary. Great, if you don't fancy spending an hour hearing yourself talk about wet dreams and hair. VIDEO LINK: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=olJH7soqgYg

Gravitational Potential & Kinetic Energy Worksheet

Gravitational Potential & Kinetic Energy Worksheet

Double-sided activity worksheet to investigate GPE and KE with a pendulum. Requires datalogger and lightgate to measure velocity. For very able pupils, can be completed in an hour. Pendulum is varied in starting height and velocity measured at bottom. Tables on worksheet plus graph to plot.

Investigating Air Resistance Worksheet

Investigating Air Resistance Worksheet

Investigate how surface area and mass affect the time it takes an objects take to fall. Introduces terminal velocity and air resitance. A double-sided worksheet for high ability students. Requires a piece of A4 paper and card, stopwatch and two metre rules plus graph paper. Will take an hour for very able students to complete. Pupils measure the time a piece of A4 paper/card takes to fall 1.5m. Then folded. Worksheet has tables ready to fill in. They will plot a graph of velocity vs surface area (already worked out).

Make a Biomass Pyramid

Make a Biomass Pyramid

It's a pyramid! They make an actual square base pyramid of biomass. Photocopy onto card. Three faces are blank, one face has an example food chain with number of organisms. Will need full explanantion of what biomass is and how it increases up the pyramid, so as not to get confused with pyramid of numbers.
