A digital version of the Year 9 P1.15 Life cycles of stars lesson.

(0)
This resource contains a 21-slide theory lesson and a Kahoot Quiz as a plenary. Slide number 1 is an introductory slide explaining the lessons learning objectives. Slides number 2 defines Stellar Nebulae as clouds of dust and gas where stars are ‘born’. Slide number 3 explains how Stellar Nebulae collapse due to gravity to form a protostar. Slide 4 looks at Main sequence stars and explains how our sun is a main sequence star. Slide 5 & 6 look at what happens when the core of a main sequence star runs out of hydrogen and then helium to become less bright; forming a red giant. Slide 7 shows that when a red giant finally collapses then its outer layers shed off and the remains are called a white dwarf. Slide 8 shows that the outer layers of the red giant that drift off into space become planetary nebulae. Slide 9 looks at the different life-cycle of massive stars and begins by comparing the relative sizes of some known stars. Slide 10 and 11 show how massive stars become red super-giants – using Betelgeuse in the constellation of Orion as an example. Slide 12 looks at what happens when Red Super-giant stars start to die. Slide 13-15 looks at Supernova’s - the death of Red Super-giant stars. Slide 16 and 17 look at the two possible outcomes post supernova. Giant stars become either a Neutron star or a Black hole (depending on the size of the giant star). Slide 18 and 19 are much needed summaries of both Star life-cycles. Slide 20 is the book-work reference with two hyperlinked you tube videos of Stars life cycles. Slide 21 contains the hyperlink to a Kahoot Quiz based upon this lesson Slide 22 contains the image credits.

A digital version of the Year 8 Chemistry C2 3.5 "Metal Displacement" lesson.

(0)
This 7 slide presentation contains both a short theory and a practical lesson. The introductory three slides demonstrate/explain how a more reactive metal will displace (steal from) a less reactive one. This concept gives the theoretical underpinning to the practical. Slide 4 shows how to set-up the practical along with safety information. Slide 5 is a 'blank' results table to project onto a whiteboard - for students to complete as the results come in from the practical. Slide 6 is a Cloze conclusion asking students to interpret their results to produce their own 'Reactivity Series'. Slide 7 is a book-work reference if you lack the time to carry out the practical this lesson.
