I produce mainly science resources. All of them have been taught by myself and I include a short comment on my experience of using the resource at the end of the description. I don't like to charge for my resources, BUT I am currently trying to put myself through a masters course on a part-time teachers wage. Once I'm through, everything becomes free!

#### Mass, Weight and Terminal Velocity (GCSE Physics)

(0)
This lesson covers: Revisit contact and non-contact forces Define mass, weight and gravity Calculate weight (W=mg) Terminal velocity (2 examples) Pre-starter: codebreak key words Starter: sort types of forces into categories Assessment: questions and tasks included in slides. Homework activity. Plenary task. Plenary 1: true or false quiz Plenary 2: summarise the lesson Homework: QWC exam question. To print before lesson: slides 1, 2 and 3 as handouts. A high ability class should be able to get through all of the content in an hour. For lower ability, this can be split in to two lessons at slide 20.

#### Hooke's Law (GCSE Physics)

(0)
This lesson covers: Hooke’s law (concept and equation) Investigation in to stretching springs Plotting graphs Pre-starter: code-break the keywords Starter: Discussion about applying knowledge of springs to other areas of physics Assessment: questions in power point, extension worksheet, graph plotting task and homework. Extension sheet: stretching springs questions Homework: analysing a bungee jump exam style question To print before lesson: code breaker sheets (in pp), homework sheets, practical sheets and extension worksheets. This was originally taught to low ability, so the graph-plotting segment is very carefully laid out step by step. I have found a lot of success for those students who have struggled to plot graphs in the past. To aim this at a higher ability, substitute this section for the extension worksheet.

#### Stopping Distances and Reaction Time (GCSE Physics)

(1)
This lesson covers: Stopping distances (definition and how to calculate) Investigation to factors affecting reaction time Factors that affect stopping distances Pre-starter: code break keywords (decode sheets included in pp) Starter: true or false quiz Investigation: how are reactions times affected by distractions? Assessment: peer-assessed worksheets, review of progress stars. Plenary: create venn diagram. Homework: create an infographic To print before lesson: code breaker handouts, worksheets (high and low ability included with answers). With the practical, let them do a few tests without recording data so they get used to the set up. This way, the results are better.

#### Squashing and Stretching (Strawberry Laces Experiment) (GCSE Physics)

(0)
Content covered in this lesson: Definitions for keywords associated with forces causing changes of shape. Experiment: stretching strawberry laces Pre-starter: decode keywords Starter: odd one out activity Assessment: graph plotting task, homework task, plenary task Homework: question sheet (short) To print before lesson: experiment handout, homework and code breaker sheets. For higher ability groups, more focus should be put on presenting results. This lesson works as a nice introduction to Hooke’s law.

#### Force and Motion (8 Complete Lessons) (GCSE Physics)

8 Resources
Lessons included: Distance, Displacement and Speed Distance, Velocity and Acceleration Movement and Position Revision Carousel Lesson Resultant Forces and Newton’s 1st and 3rd Laws Stopping Distances and Reaction Time Mass, Weight and Terminal Velocity Squashing and Stretching Hooke’s Law Content Covered: Definitions for distance, displacement and speed Relevant equations Acceleration (definition, examples and equation) Displacement-Time Graphs Recap (could be easily edited if this is the first time on this concept) Velocity-Time Graphs (description, examples, plotting) Revision of above content Newtons first and third laws of motion Free-body diagrams Resultant forces Stopping distances (definition and how to calculate) Investigation to factors affecting reaction time Factors that affect stopping distances Revisit contact and non-contact forces Define mass, weight and gravity Calculate weight (W=mg) Terminal velocity (2 examples) Definitions for keywords associated with forces causing changes of shape. Experiment: stretching strawberry laces Hooke’s law (concept and equation) Investigation in to stretching springs Plotting graphs

#### Distance, Displacement and Speed (GCSE PHYSICS)

(0)
Content covered: Definitions for distance, displacement and speed Relevant equations Pre-starter: code-break the keywords Starter: discussion about distance record holders Assessment: peer-assessed worksheet (differentiated), plenary comments, homework Plenary: lesson feedback Homework: research and questions To print prior to lesson: codebreaker handouts (included in pp), worksheets (differentiated) and homework sheets. I found this lesson to be particularly accessible for low ability students since it contextualises the concepts and the activities are built around peer support (rally coach task).

#### Distance, Velocity, Acceleration and Graphs of Motion

(0)
Content covered: Acceleration (definition, examples and equation) Displacement-Time Graphs Recap (could be easily edited if this is the first time on this concept) Velocity-Time Graphs (description, examples, plotting) Pre-starter: decode the keywords Starter: Think, pair share activity about acceleration Assessment: questions/tasks included in slides, plenary activity, progress stars, homework. Plenary: discussion on what your neighbour has learned. Homework: plotting velocity-time graph from data collected in lesson To print before lesson: code-breaker handouts, velocity-time activity handouts (challenge and support versions included). Students will also need access to stopwatches for the video. I usually split this across 2 lessons since it is a lot of content. A good place to split is after slide 15. I found students to be very engaged with the acceleration record-holders discussion since it provides good context. This section is also good for clarifying the difference between velocity and acceleration. They especially enjoy the hat-throwing fungus! Motion graphs section is very carefully laid out and emphasises the differences between displacement-time and velocity-time since I find students often struggle here. The velocity-time activity is very fun, but I have found it needs very careful explaining for some students.

#### Resultant Forces and Newton's 1st and 3rd Laws (GCSE Physics)

(0)
This power point presentation covers: Newtons first and third laws of motion Free-body diagrams Resultant forces Pre-starter: code-break keywords. Decoding sheets are on the first slide ready for printing. Starter: sink or float activity. Requires a large-ish tub of water and objects to place in. Assessment: GCSE exam questions with answers included at the end.

#### Movement and Position Revision Carousel / Circus (GCSE Physics)

(0)
This lesson revises: Speed and velocity Distance and displacement Acceleration Graphs of motion Pre-starter: Unscramble the anagrams task Starter: recap speed calculations Main activity: carousel of tasks Plenary: summarise the lesson (5-5-1 task) Homework: Creating exam style questions To print prior to lesson: carousel station instruction sheets (5 different sheets). This lesson is based around 5 carousel activities. They are a mixture or mini-investigations (easy to set up and carry out) and practice calculations. I found this lesson to be very successful, with even the very challenging students becoming engaged.
