Practical Science Careers project

(0)
A series of 8 practical activities, put into the context of careers in Science. This is aimed at KS3 students, introducing some practical skills. Aims of the project: To learn about some careers in Science, and to try some out. To develop investigation skills as required in the KS4 core practical’s included at GCSE. Students get to experience being an Aerospace engineer by designing and testing paper planes, a Biochemist by testing urine samples, a Biomedical scientist by testing different anti bacterial soaps, a Chemical engineer by investigating recipes for bouncy balls, a Civil engineer by designing and testing bridges, a Forensic scientist by taking and analysing finger prints, a Mechanical engineer by making cotton reel motors, and a Pyrotechnic technician, by testing firework colours and making sparklers. Each includes a job profile page to be filled out using the national careers service website to provide context for the lesson. Also included is a handy technician guide. This is designed to be handed out as a student booklet, with each career taking around 2 single hour lessons to complete, aimed at KS3 students. Students develop their investigation skills, as well as learning about some different careers in Science.

Bitesize Energy revision - Energy transfers and efficiency

(4)
Review please! This is a worksheet in a series made to summarise and recap topics from GCSE Physics. All worksheets are based on BBC bitesize pages with the same name, with a QR code to guide students to the correct page. All the answers to the front page can be found there. There is then a 15 mark exam-style question to test their new knowledge. Every worksheet in the series is out of 15 so students can track their progress. I've used them with year 11, and set them as homework, that way they are forced to revise early! This is designed to help revise for the Edexcel iGCSE in Physics, but is fairly universal and should fit with any exam board. Includes PDFs for easy printing, and word documents for editing.
Dinosaur food chains

Dinosaur food chains

(0)
I used these information cards on different dinosaurs to start a project with my year 7s. I told my students that we were designing a fish tank, but for dinosaurs! They had to choose their favourite for their tank. They had to think about other dinosaurs they’d have to include to create a food chain for their pet, as well as the habitat. More able students also thoughts about other things they might want to include based no the adaptations of their chosen dinosaur. Alternatively, students could use these to make a food chain, or food web, and the extension task could be to write about their adaptations or habitats.
