A RAG review sheet that can be used following an exam for students to evaluate their exam performance and to set personal targets. This is set up for an A level chemistry paper, but can be easily adapted for any subject.
An independent learning activity for students to find out about the structures and properties of diamond and graphite. Students should start at the bottom of the pyramid of questions and work their way up. Answers are provided.
An independent learning activity for students to find out about aluminium and its extraction. Students should start at the bottom of the question pyramid and work their way up to the more difficult questions.
A collaborative learning lesson about the extraction of iron in the blast furnace.
Students are split into three groups, roughly by ability. A more able student is ‘planted’ in each group to act as the leader of learning. Students work through a series of questions based on information sheets provided, in order to become ‘experts’ on their information. Sheet 2 is for the most able students and sheet 3 for the least.
Answers are provided for students to assess their own work.
The groups are then disbanded and divided into new groups, ensuring that at least one member from each original group is represented. Students then work through a double sided worksheet to summarise the extraction of iron in the blast furnace.
