Acids and Alkalis

Acids and Alkalis

This is a revision lesson for the new 9-1 GCSE chemistry course. The aim of the lesson is for all students to go through the 13 specification points and write down what they know about them. Once this is done, students will colour in the first circle red or green (depending on their understanding). They then go to the 13 stations around the room and take a small worksheet for each one they put red for (maximum of 8). This is stuck onto the A3 paper. After the lesson they put red or green in the second circle. The revision sheets need to be on A3 paper in order to allow the sheets to be stuck on. Each sheet will need to be placed at a station where there is a resource to help the students. These are numbered so question 1 is resource 1. I have found this lesson to be extremely effective.

Levers, Moments and Pressure

Levers, Moments and Pressure

An outstanding lesson designed to test the understanding of levers, moments and pressure. Can be differentiated accordingly, by inserting information to the table used to help. The lesson involves choosing a Pokemon to cross a lake (pressure) and lift a boulder (moments). Students go around the room and attempt to catch a Pokemon which will get them across both obstacles safely. It comes with a worksheet and is pretty self explanatory throughout. The lesson is very interactive and after a 10 minute walk through of the task ,the students will just get on with the lesson and attempt to catch a pokemon to help them get across the lake and around the boulder. Especially loved by students who normally hate physics due to Pokemon being all the range today!

Pokemon Physics

Pokemon Physics

A lesson designed around catching Pokemon. It will helps students understand the concepts of levels, moments and pressure by summarizing them all up as one large task. There is a worksheet to help students answer the ultimate question... Given the physics information, who is the only Pokemon who can help you?

Quantitative Chemistry (C2 Topic 6)

Quantitative Chemistry (C2 Topic 6)

A summary to help out with the quantitative chemistry (topic 6) for Edexcel Additional Science. It has all of the equations they need, plus a walk-through and a question for them to try. Obviously the black boxes aren't there!

Fractional Distillation

Fractional Distillation

A whole lesson on fractional distillation. It includes the basics of hydrocarbons and has a fun activity where students need to utilise their memory skills in order to learn fractional distillation. Perfect for all abilities, I have found this lesson works really well.

Conservation of Mass

Conservation of Mass

A lesson (with practicals should you wish to use them) on the of conservation of mass. It goes through what we mean by conservation of mass, some practical demonstrations that can be done to show the conservation of mass and questions relating to the conservation of mass.

Covalent Bonding

Covalent Bonding

Lesson which goes over covalent bonding from start to finish. It starts with a recap of protons neutrons and electrons and the goes into covalent bonding. I have made an animated walk through which explains exactly how to draw a covalent bond and how to do an example of one. The PowerPoint has a step by step guide for students and the animations move with the steps. It then goes into double covalent bonds. Having used this lesson it makes explaining covalent bonding very simple.
