This starter introduces the students to the concept of a producing a detailed risk assessment rather than writing a basic list of safety precautions. It scaffolds the idea of a risk assessment and the template can be adapted to suit any particular experiment.
A PPT to guide students to create revision flashcards for the unit on structure and bonding.
Once revised, a booklet of common questions (many multiple choice to aid peer marking) to assess understanding.
This is a resource I use to teach my students the difference between the keywords precise, accurate and reliable. I often use this resource before they evaluate any experiment as a prompt and reminder.
This worksheet is suitable for Years 8-11. Activities in the top left hand corner are the easier tasks, with support and differentiation built into the questions. As students become more confident, the scaffolding is gradually reduced. Students slowly work their way up the Blooms’ heirarchy of skills as they complete each part of the puzzle.
This activity is designed to get students to evaluate some sample student work, which in turn informs their writing of a detailed 6 mark longer question. It is scaffolded to enable students to make progress in their understanding of the concepts needed for the rates unit.
Everything you need to administer and assess the required practicals for the AQA A Level Chemistry course, practicals 1 to 12.
Each pack outlines the title of the practical, the CPAC criteria students are being tested on and provides opportunity for specific feedback. At the back of each booklet is a collection of exam questions to get students to apply their learning from the practicals in exam contexts.
These booklets and the AQA CPAC tracker from AQA were checked by AQA visiting assessors who commented on how effective these were at framing the learning that occurs in a practical context and then the application needed for exam style questions.
This lesson allows students to go deeper than the usual ‘Mendeleev discovered the Periodic Table because…’ This is perfect for the new GCSE specs. The worksheet can be used to support pupils who need more guidance and structure.
