These resources are meant for teachers of AQA Physics GCSE for first teaching in September 2016.
They are a complete set of resources for the first lesson on Energy in the AQA GCSE Physics specification (8463) and specifically meet the requirements of section 18.104.22.168 Energy stores and systems.
The lesson plan included outlines how this lesson is intended to be used and the resources accompanying it.
The presentation is designed to meet three objectives with outcomes; To define a system, To explain how energy is stored and changed in systems and to outline the types of energy involved in this unit.
It contains hyperlinks, both internally to reach sections supporting objectives and externally to "Youtube" videos supporting each section of learning. The notes section of the presentation also gives some guidance on sections and individual slides.
The accompanying worksheets are note taking worksheets, differentiated to meet three levels of prior ability.
There are also two word puzzles and a keyword and definition sheet to support literacy and Physics learning. They are a crossword to support higher ability students and a word search to support lower ability students. The keyword sheet can be used to support free learning, for students to develop their own questions and answers.
