Outstanding Science in a box

I specialise in general science resources for KS3 and KS4 and biology for KS5. I try to make my resources suitable for non-specialists and teachers new to the subject, by including answers to any questions and full step-by-step explanations. I love flashcards and try to make a set for each unit I deliver. I am in the process of upgrading these to colour coded (differentiated) sets. All newly added resources will have a remote-learning version too (just in case :-))

Revision flashcards C1 Atomic structure AQA chemistry GCSE

This is a set of 54 double sided flashcards (print double sided, flip long edge) on the atomic structure unit. I have colour coded them (blue = easiest, green = harder, red = hardest), so you can differentiate by asking different groups to focus on learning different colour groups. I’ve made these for my year 9’s end of unit test, but I will also be using them with my year 11s for revision.

Inside Particles AQA Activate KS3 Year 7 Lesson 5.1.8. of Matter Unit suitable for non-specialists

(0)
This is the ‘Inside Particles’ lesson in the AQA Activate, Matter unit This is designed to be easily followed / delivered by non-specialists as the answers are all included. You will need Molymods available for this activity - but if you have non available you could improvise with plasticine balls and cocktail sticks. There is a literacy support sheet included for SEN students and students with weak handwriting. I have attached the periodic table I used in the lesson, but this is not my own and as such is not included in the sale. It is the generic GCSE periodic table included in most textbooks. You can of course use whichever version your school uses.
Osmosis lesson AQA GCSE Biology Cell biology

Osmosis lesson AQA GCSE Biology Cell biology

(18)
Used as an introduction to osmosis for a high ability year 9 group - but can be tweaked for lower ability and revision. Used as a freestanding lesson before attempting the AQA required practical on osmosis. Lesson contains a 10 minute video by the wonderful 'Amoeba Sisters' but I've made my own question sheet for the students to answer as the video is playing (answers on the Power point). You will want to change the starter to suit your own group. If you don't need a complete lesson there's a little worksheet included where students have to show which direction the water would move (net movement) for six different concentrations. Please rate this resource if you have found it useful - if not, comments on how to improve it are very welcome.

I have created a series of science skills lessons for my KS3 students. I have created remote learning versions of all the lessons that do not involve practicals. Most lessons have a literacy support document to support those students who find it difficult to write for sustained periods. Suitable for specialists and non-specialist How to tackle long answer questions (remote version included) Controls and control variables (remote version included) Following a method (not suitable to set remotely) Critical thinking (remote version included) The scientific method (remote version included) Scientific terminolgy (remote version included)6

We are following the Activate 1 (New 2016) book. This is the lesson I created to deliver lesson 5 Gravity. You are purchasing the Powerpoint only which I made, but I have included the worksheets I used in the lesson to make it easier for you. If you like this lesson I will be putting all of the lessons from the first unit in a bundle, complete with revision resources for the end-of-unit test. All of the money received from sales is spent on resources for students
Making animal cells using plasticine and petri dish KS3 Year 7 Biology Activate

Making animal cells using plasticine and petri dish KS3 Year 7 Biology Activate

(0)
This was an additional lesson in our scheme of work for the cells and movement unit. A small group of year 7 students completed this activity to consolidate their work on cells as they struggle to complete writing activities. This is a more ‘hands on’ way of learning the material so is most suitable for lower ability students and SEN. Not really an activity for high ability. Could be a fun activity for a science club. Need petri dishes and plasticine in a variety of colours.
