A digital revision and DIRT feedback lesson for the Year 7 C1 3 "Chemical Reactions" topic.

(0)
This download contains 2 presentations to end the topic. A revision lesson based around designing a mind-map of the complete topic, including key concepts, words and diagrams. A Dedicated Improvement and Reflection Time (DIRT) lesson which uses real scanned examples of (anonymous) students work to show best practice and common mistakes. This is one of the most powerful tools that I have ever used to improve student grades.

This resource contains an slide Practical lesson and an instruction worksheet. There is a theory lesson that precedes - which is also available from my shop. The Practical lesson contains an introductory two slides reviewing the classic 'transverse section through a leaf' diagram and the 'structure and location of the stomata' from the theory lesson. Slide 4 contains visual instructions on how to prepare the microscope slide. Slide 5 and 6 show how the stomata appear under a microscope to show what they are looking for. Slide 7 contains the instructions on how to produce good biological drawings. If you have any time left there is always the Keyword search or worksheet from the theory lesson to help your students consolidate their learning.

A digital version of the P1 3.1 "light" lesson in the Year 7 Science Activate book 1.

(0)
This lesson is differentiated to cater to a less academic audience than the original texts were intended. The Activate 1 book has a reading age of 11-12 years, however, many year 7 students have a reading age below their chronological age and this Presentation was written with those students in mind. This bundle includes a basic introductory lesson and also includes a word-search as a plenary. A super resource for Science teachers who want a colourful engaging lesson written by an experienced science teacher. The slides are colour coded by topic, contain All/Most/Some differentiated learning objectives, the current date and with 28-32 point Ariel font to enhance legibility. The Author has over 20 years’ experience of working in a range of Schools and was awarded a Master’s Degree in 2008 in “Education and technology in Science” by Bristol University. This lesson (and scheme of work) has been successfully trialed in a state Academy and has been used (and improved each time) over three different classes. If there are any typos, inaccuracies or comments you would like to report – please contact me as all feedback is most welcome.

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.

This resource contains an 8 slide theory lesson and a Keyword-search. The theory lesson contains an introductory four slides giving examples of Convection in air currents, central heating radiators and ovens. Slide 5 gives an example of Convection in water - boiling. All the convection slides are under the sub-heading "heat energy piggybacks on particles" to help reinforce the concept of convection regardless of the liquid or gaseous medium. Slide 6 gives an example of conduction and makes the link with metals (as good conductors of thermal energy). The conduction slide has the sub-heading "heat energy is contagious" to help reinforce the concept of thermal energy moving through a solid. Slide 7 is an excellent visual summary of heat transfers. Slide 8 is a book-work reference. Slide 9 is a reminder/extension to the supporting Keyword search (based on the language around this topic).

A digital version of the Year 8 C2 3.7 "Polymers" lesson.

(0)
This resource contains two lessons, a 6 slide theory lesson and a 9 slide practical lesson. Lesson 1 - The theory lesson contains an introductory two slides which are designed to form the basis of a discussion about the pro's and cons of polymers (plastics) as a material. Slides number 3, 4 and 5 contain links to You tube videos, each one is chosen to 'spark' a debate over our use of polymers. Slide 6 is a book-work reference if you lack the time to carry out the practical this lesson. Lesson 2 is a brilliant multi-stage practical from the RSC but translated as a presentation for the students to follow on the whiteboard. There is also a word document with instructions, resource list, health and safety and some of the more complex chemistry included. The practical is messy, brilliant fun and fairly complex and probably works best with higher ability groups but shows that it is possible to make coloured, biodegradable plastics from natural polymers.
