Mr Campisi's Chemistry Compendium

Welcome to my TES Resources Shop. Most of the resources you will find are for A-Level and GCSE Chemistry, in particular the more difficult topics and areas which can be more difficult to keep engaging. You'll also find some of my more exciting resources for the other Sciences at KS3 level.

Year 7 Particles Takeaway menu revision h/work

(0)
A fully differentiated resource that can be used for a revision lesson or as a homework task for a whole topic. Students can choose the task according to difficulty and which areas they feel they need to improve on the most. To be used with the Year 7 topic on Particles (or equivalent). Leave a review if you download :)
Gibbs Free Energy and Equilibrium

Gibbs Free Energy and Equilibrium

(0)
Lesson plan and resources for a recent outstanding lesson on Year 13 Energetics. This is a very new area of the exam specification for Edexcel A-Level and as such there were few resources available to teach it. The lesson plan is self-explanatory. You may want to set the same homework for the previous lesson where students create a question for each other on Gibbs and then answer and peer assess as the start to this lesson. Please enjoy and review if you like it. Edit: 04/09/2018 - I have rewritten the card sort to make it much easier to understand and more relevant to the lesson objectives
Bonding in Alkenes - Sigma and Pi Bonds

Bonding in Alkenes - Sigma and Pi Bonds

(0)
This is a lesson PPT designed for Year 12 Chemistry (specifically Edexcel). The lesson works through a starter, acquiring new knowledge with questioning and diagrams and then on to an independent piece of work/plenary. Timed at just under 1 hour depending on class and any other resources/tasks added.
Respiration Card Sort

Respiration Card Sort

(8)
A card sort activity using the main keywords that would be in an introduction to respiration lesson. Made for a lower ability Year 10 IGCSE class. Each card strip has beginning and end of a sentence to be matched.
Organic Chemistry Mind Map for IGCSE/GCSE
campisim

Organic Chemistry Mind Map for IGCSE/GCSE

(0)
A summary of all the detail your students will need to succeed in Organic Chemistry at IGCSE/GCSE level. Designed with CIE/Cambridge exams in mind but will be suitable for any exam board. Students can annotate in their own way to make their own links, as well as use those provided. Great visual aid for revision in Chemistry. Edit 03/10/18: Added a version of the mindmap with blanks for students to fill in. This will help promote their own revision and research of relevant knowledge for this topic.
Sacrificial Protection (IGCSE/GCSE)
campisim

Sacrificial Protection (IGCSE/GCSE)

(0)
A lesson plan originally designed for iGCSE Chemistry for students to understand the process of sacrificial protection. Students will be able to relate this to reactivity of metals, electron flow and oxidation/reduction. Outcomes are differentiated for A-C grade.
Types of Oxides - Acidic, Basic and Amphoteric
campisim

Types of Oxides - Acidic, Basic and Amphoteric

(1)
A short lesson on the different types of Oxides. Designed for CIE iGCSE but can be adapted easily for other specifications. Students have to use prior knowledge of periodic table and reactions of acids & bases to work out reactions and patterns in formulae of oxides. The plenary includes some exam type questions (with mark schemes) to check for understanding. 03/10/18 Edit: Added activity which can be can be cut out and used like a card sort or to fill in the blanks for each oxide. Info on some of the oxides is above GCSE level so has already been filled in for students.
Transition Metals - Vanadium and Chromium
campisim

Transition Metals - Vanadium and Chromium

(0)
A set of resources, including lesson plan, for a detailed lesson on the reactions of two transition metals - Chromium and Vanadium. The files include a starter activity on identifying types of reactions which students can carry out individually or as pairs. The main activities are mind-mapping and a working memory activity which should be done in groups. Finally, there is a extension/plenary activity containing an exam style question. This is a recently observed lesson that was judged as outstanding. It does assume knowledge of electrode potentials. For reflection, I often use something like ‘plenaries on a plate’ which I’m sure can still be found in TES resources.
Chromium Chemistry revision mind map
campisim

Chromium Chemistry revision mind map

(0)
A mind map to help A-Level students revise or learn the chemistry of Chromium complexes and oxidation reduction reactions. One file has the mind map with blanks for the students to fill in so that they can learn from it. The other file has all the answers written in for your reference or to give straight to students if you like. Originally designed for Edexcel A-Level, but will work for any other spec that has Chromium in.
Nucleophilic Substitution - Halogenoalkanes
campisim

Nucleophilic Substitution - Halogenoalkanes

(0)
A complete and very simple lesson plan with extra resources designed for Year 12 AS and A-Level Chemistry. The lesson first checks and builds on prior knowledge of reaction mechanisms and then introduces the new reaction mechanism that students have to then apply to a slightly different context. The plenary activity is a good opportunity for AfL, exploring misconceptions as well as peer-assessment.
The Space Race

The Space Race

(10)
Interactive presentation with questions on key milestones in the Space Race.students can then evaluate who they think really won the Space Race and make their own timeline of events
iGCSE Chemistry - Particulate Nature of matter
campisim

iGCSE Chemistry - Particulate Nature of matter

(0)
A very short Scheme of work and associated resources for teaching Topic 1 - Particulate Nature to Year 10 Chemistry students. This is based on CIE iGCSE specification, but could easily be modified to suit any other specification. It is designed particularly with EAL learners in mind but again would suit all abilities.
Grignard Reagents - Chemical Synthesis
campisim

Grignard Reagents - Chemical Synthesis

(0)
A full lesson presentation to help you teach one of the newest parts of the A-Level specification. The lesson starts with linking to previous learning on aromatic substitution, then exposition of the new learning, applying and consolidating it before a final review. All the chemical structures used have been drawn manually for that authentic feel. This was designed for the Edexcel A-Level specification but would also be suitable for other specifications that include Grignard in their subject content. Feedback always appreciated.
Combustion Analysis - A-Level Chemistry
campisim

Combustion Analysis - A-Level Chemistry

(0)
A set of resources for a complete lesson on Combustion Analysis for a Year 12 class ideally. There is an outline lesson plan which can be adapted to fit into your own templates as necessary. Most of the lesson is on the PPT included, but there is also a sorting/matching activity to embed this new skill with your students. Feedback appreciated as ever.
Audio Visual Dictionaries IGCSE Chemistry
campisim

Audio Visual Dictionaries IGCSE Chemistry

(0)
A selection of audio-visual dictionaries to help students learn keywords for IGCSE or GCSE Chemistry. The topics covered are Electrolysis, Energetics and Chemical reactions. These have been designed with Mandarin speakers in mind but can be easily adapted for learners of any other first language (or just leave the translation out altogether). Feedback always appreciated.
Applications of Heat Transfer

Applications of Heat Transfer

(0)
A PowerPoint lesson on applying knowledge of heat transfer to everyday life. Ends with students designing an 'Eco-House' with their knowledge of heat transfer in mind. Edit: Added a link to the Prezi version of this lesson saved on the web. Definitely more visually interesting than PPT and editable if you sign up
