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. If you liked this lesson, please don't forget to review it and feel free to browse my shop where there are many more.

This resource contains:- 1) A 7 slide theory lesson and includes a 7 question KAHOOT Quiz plenary. 2) A Card Sort activity based on the new vocabulary in the lesson. 3) A Giant Keyword search that uses the definitions, not the names to ensure your students know what each of the new words mean. The theory lesson contains an introductory two slides to illustrate a familiar garden food chain and food web. Slide 4 asks for the students to identify the positions of each member of the food web, producer, top carnivore etc and builds on the previous Card Sort activity. Slide 6 asks students to use their understanding of the interrelationships to predict the effect of various scenarios affecting the food web e.g loss of producers Slide 7 contains the hyperlink to a bespoke 7 question KAHOOT quiz on Aerobic/Anaerobic Respiration - to assess what your students have learnt. Whilst this is not a conceptually difficult lesson, the new, specific vocabulary presents a challenge to many students hence the emphasis on the Card Sort activity and Keyword search that uses the definitions, not the names so the students need to be able to know what each of the new words mean.

Slide 3 is an excellent summary image to show the frequencies of infrasound, sound and ultrasound and the animals that can use each one. Slide 4 is a revision of basic wave structure and terminology. Slide 5 looks at how sound waves can reflect to give an echo and explains how most ultrasound applications use this ‘echo’ to create an image. Slide 6 and 7 explain how ultrasound sonar is used to detect fish\ submarines under the water. Slide 8 explains how bats use echolocation – ultrasound clicks to detect prey in the dark. Slide 9 looks at a commercial, possibly unethical use of ultrasound to keep teenagers from congregating.
