Gravity, weight and mass. Gravitational field strength on other planets. Complete KS3 lesson. Gravity is lesson 4 in a series of 6 high quality lessons that fully and expertly delivers all the points within BOTH the NEW KS3 Department for Education ‘Space Physics’ National Curriculum and the AQA KS3 specification / syllabus sections ‘3.7.2 Universe’ and ‘3.1.2 Gravity’. NO PREPARATION REQUIRED ! Simply print the worksheet (or you could project it) the PPT carefully leads you step by step through the lesson so no preparation required. GRAVITY STUDENT OUTCOMES: By the end of the lesson students will: * Know what gravity is, and which direction it acts in. * Understand the factors that affect gravitational field strength. * Understand the difference between mass and weight. * Be able to calculate weight and mass on the earth. * Be able to calculate weight on other planets. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to unscramble key words and work out what today’s lesson is about. After discussion that leads to revealing the title and lesson outcomes, students then self-assess against their current understanding of this lesson. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN… This lesson is chunked into discrete sections to support learning and engender positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. All points of the specification are addressed. There are various student activities such as: calculations with answers, gap fill, matching, paired work, literacy activities, focused questions with answers and differentiation, word unscramble, homework activity sheet (unique), mnemonic MATTHEW, self-assessment opportunities, peer assessment opportunities etc. This good variety of activities keeps pupils focused and happily learning. PLENARY: In the plenary activity pupils complete questions and then peer assess to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. They then self-assess themselves against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance learning of today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES: These are provided just in case any group requires them. COMPLETE AND READY TO USE: All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you to do but photocopy the activity homework sheet and deliver the lesson. THANK YOU FOR LOOKING: Thanks for looking, your positive feedback would be very much appreciated :) THIS IS ONE OF A SERIES OF 6 LESSONS: 1. Solar system, stars and galaxies and the universe. 2. Geocentric and heliocentric solar system models 3. Seasons. 4. Gravity, weight and mass. 5. Exploring and observing the universe. 6. The moon’s phases.

A complete and ‘ready to deliver’ KS3 lesson. Lesson title: Breathing (inhaling and exhaling) and lung capacity. Lesson objectives: Describe the “process” of “inhaling” and “exhaling”. Describe how a “bell jar” can be used to model what happens during breathing. Explain how to measure lung “volume”. Measure lung volume in the classroom (simple experiment) CHALLENGE MISSION: Calculate your own lung capacity This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do NOT need to spend hours carefully planning and resourcing this lesson – I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for you. There is nothing to do but give it a quick read through and familiarise yourself with it, and if necessary, take some simple decisions the lesson guides you to make before delivering it.
