P13.1 - The Electromagnetic Spectrum AQA GCSE Physics/Trilogy

(2)
Complete lesson based on the Electromagnetic Spectrum topic of the AQA Physics/Trilogy new specification GCSE course, also known as P13.1 from the Nelson Thornes text books. This lesson contains: Starter See slide notes for this starter, but a demonstration of one of the non-visible parts of the EM spectrum Main Self learning task, known as the market place activity (http://www.thinkinghistory.co.uk/ActivityModel/ActModMarketPlace.html). This is an excellent activity to showcase group work, peer learning, peer teaching and cooperation. I have used this activity with all ability groups and find it works brilliantly with all. Low ability groups will need more support, but they will probably gain more from the activity. Plenary Students either complete an exam question or some short answer questions (all with answers), or both.
Leaf Structure

Leaf Structure

(8)
Students paint the underside of a leaf and look at the stomata Whilst the nail varnish is drying the students will complete the worksheet.
DNA Extraction

DNA Extraction

(1)
DNA Extraction lesson and practical. Lesson covers DNA and genetic materials with a thought provoking starter on the length of DNA in a cell. A simple variation of the lesson could be to extract DNA from one fruit, but this lesson looks at comparing different fruits and the challenges faced with that. Easy to follow worksheet
Amplitude and Pitch

Amplitude and Pitch

(1)
Use rulers to demonstrate amplitude and pitch. My starter was me playing happy birthday with a 15cm ruler, and Jingle Bells (it was December when I planned this)
Speed Practical

Speed Practical

(2)
Using ramps and cars the students plan their investigation using the planning sheet, and then carry out the investigation. This can all be done in one lesson. I then set them the task of writing up the investigation (using the level ladder) as homework, but could be done in a subsequent lesson
Pressure

Pressure

(7)
Include demo's such as: 1. One nail bursting a balloon, then bed of nails not bursting the balloon 2. Crushing can (youtube) 3. Inflateable marshmallowman (youtube)
New AQA (2016) Physics P1 - Energy , Lesson 4 - Gravitational potential energy

New AQA (2016) Physics P1 - Energy , Lesson 4 - Gravitational potential energy

(1)
Complete lesson on gravitational potential energy. Starter - Students start thinking about GPE Main -Introduce GPE, some worked examples and then an opportunity for students to complete a worksheet of questions (rearranging questions included). Answers to questions are included as part of a progress check. Students can then do a simple practical looking at their own gravitational potential energies Plenary - Link to a Kahoot! quiz
