New Year's resolutions

This is a 30 slide powerpoint navigated lesson. It leads students to consider what they want to improve and then gives them a simple but magical tool to do it in the form of a scorecard. Particularly useful for tutor time, or for New Years Resolutions or for any reflection and target setting or goal setting. It can be focused on school targets and be used to encourage students to take responsibility for their own learning and achieving progress. Useful for students and also for teacher’s - I’m much more organised and self disciplined now I use my scorecard ! :-) Could even be used as an active assembly - each student would need a scorecard and a pen to participate. Both the Powerpoint and excel files are fully editable. Happy teaching Barclayfox.

Dangers of radiation. A complete and ready to deliver high quality GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. There is nothing to do ! Even if you do not have time to look at it in advance it is not a problem as the PPT will lead you smoothly through the lesson. Lesson objectives: Understand the dangers of “ionising” radiation and the damage they can cause (ManKinD). Know how to safely handle radioactive sources and protect yourself (TarDiS) Understand contamination and irradiation. Explain how ideas about the world can change. Please note: This lesson does not cover “uses” as they are covered in the Barclayfox lesson 8 of this topic. This lesson is called “Nuclear radiation uses in medicine”. My lessons cover the whole of this “atomic structure” topic but do not blindly follow the textbook order instead they use a structure that has proved highly successful over many years. Uses in medicine lesson is here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/nuclear-radiation-uses-in-medicine-sterilisation-diagnosis-treatment-tracers-radiotherapy-etc-11703961 This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of learning activities some are noted below: * ALL answers are provided throughout! * Starter - recaps previous lessons (with answers). * Paired work activities. * Scientific literacy activity. * Homeworks - 2 - you choose. * Questions. * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Video clip link (carefully selected – this alone can save you a lot of searching). * Gap fill activity. * Unscramble the words race. * Plenary quiz. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your loved ones, press buy now! If you like this lesson please leave a review. This lesson is part of a Bundle/series, and you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundle – contains all lessons (if available not all series are bundled) 1. History of the atom and the discovery of the nucleus. 2. Isotopes and Mass number and Atomic number. 3. Alpha, Beta and Gamma – ionising radiation. 4. Changes in the nucleus – decay equations 5.

Echoes and ultrasound - KS3 science lesson that teachers pupils about: sound, using sound, echoes, what ultrasound is, uses of ultrasound, baby scans, sonar, fish finders, dolphins, and calculation of distance from an object. It includes an attractive PowerPoint with many varied activities to keep students focused. The PPT includes an unscramble puzzle race, video links, gap fill, echo based literacy and numeracy, simple homework, and a plenary gap fill activity. No marking for you! All answers are provided throughout for easy peer or self-assessment. Duration: 1 lesson. Like you I always want to give my young people the best lessons I can so I have spent a lot of time and effort on this spread out over 10+ years. I hope you like it - if you do I would be immensely grateful for your feedback :-D Thank you for your time, and happy teaching! Barclayfox.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS4 / GCSE lesson from Barclayfox. For USA - this lesson is for use between 8th to 10th grade. This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: Students investigate the effect of : * varying the force on the acceleration of an object of constant mass * varying the mass of an object on the acceleration produced by a constant force. This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of learning activities as below: * Notes to help the teacher. * Support sheet (can be given to all, or only to those need it). * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Activity sheet (unique - results and questions) print for each student. * This lesson is based around a Practical / student experiment. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Differentiated questions – all answers are provided. * Peer marking / self marking opportunities. * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Play ball - you can do this on any of the questions.. * Paired work opportunities – all answers are provided. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. * Extension activities – just in case additional activities are required.

Hints and tips on how to fall asleep and get good quality sleep. This is not a lesson as such. However students who are short of sleep find it very very difficult to learn, so hopefully this will help them. I wrote this as one of my colleagues (yes he is a teacher!) is having a problem sleeping, and several of my students complain about not being able to sleep / lack of sleep. So I hope this will help them. It’s aimed as my adult colleague but these word docs can be very easily modified and given to students…

FREE help sheet for teachers or students on energy stores, transfers, carriers, pathways and energy diagrams. This is specifically for the new GCSE 9-1 specification (which can be confusing). ENERGY - THE LANGUAGE HAS CHANGED: On tes there are many many energy lessons and resources teaching to the old spec. which are no longer applicable if taught today – which is a polite way of saying they are wrong. There are even some resources I’ve looked at that claim to be new spec. 9-1 – but they are wrong too, even BBC Bitesize is getting some aspects a bit confused. Please don’t risk teaching your classes incorrectly ! This resource is a FREE help sheet for science teachers which explains it all. This help sheet is clear and simple and free ! For a high quality, ready to use and accurate science lesson on this topic please use the link below.
