A step by step guide on how to write ionic equations. Mainly for year 11 but could be useful for year 12.
It is a walk-through guide to help students with a very difficult concept.
It starts with a step-by-step guide which can be written into books or printed for students. It will then go through many examples on how to write them, in the same format as the step-by-step guide. There are then questions to assess the learning.
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.
A whole lesson on combustion, complete with a 6 mark question (with differentiated key words) for the students to attempt.
The lesson is full of ways to help students understand combustion. From analogies to six mark questions.
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!
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.
Questions and a PowerPoint which goes through all of topics 1 and 2 for the new GCSE course in chemistry.
There are questions at the end, which are in a points style, where students get given the sheets and have to answer the questions. There are no answers for these as I go round answering them myself, so you will need to have some chemistry knowledge. You can change the amount of points required depending on your set.
You can also just use the revision slides or revision points.
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.
A lesson with various tasks on metal extraction. It includes smelting, electrolysis and finding metals native. There's also a literacy based task (pictured).
I have used this lesson many times and it is always well received by students and it makes it easier for them to understand how metals are extracted.
It includes the extraction methods, the reactivity series and displacement reactions.
This is a 30 question chemistry baseline test for year 12's.
It can either be used as a summer homework for year 11's going into year 12 or it can be used for new year 12's as a baseline assessment.
All of the questions have answers in the attached mark scheme and they are all questions which have been taken from the year 11 and 12 specification, but should be accessible for the year 11's.
The test will provide a good indicator on where your students are and which students need to do some work to get to the required level.
It could also be used as a revision for year 12/13.
Whole lesson on dynamic equilibrium. It includes a lot of theory and many exam questions (with answers).
It goes through concentration, temperature and pressure in a way students can understand.
This lesson can be easily adapted for GCSE classes too.
