Ionic Jig saw

Ionic Jig saw

This activity develops students understanding of balancing charges in ionic salts. The students print out the activity, cut out the shapes and the recombine to determine the formulae of different ionic salts by balancing charge and making sure jigsaw is correct. Designed for KS3 and KS4 Science.

Rates of reactions exercises

Rates of reactions exercises

This resource is designed to practise graphing skills and data analysis around chemistry rates of reactions. Also designed to develop student understanding of results obtained using collision theory. The exercise consists of activities where students develop understanding of the 4 different ways to change rates of reaction - concentration, temperature, catalysts and surface area.

Rates of Reaction

Rates of Reaction

This activity is divided into 4 parts each activity involved one of the components of rates of reactions - size, concentration, temperature and catalysts. The activity involves graphing data and then explaining the plot using rates of reaction theory. Students graph data and then apply this information to collision theory to explain observed data. The activity also includes hint sheets to assist students.

Angry birds - projectile motion

Angry birds - projectile motion

This lesson involves using angry birds as a context to develop understanding of projectile motion and the affect of gravity on objects. The lesson is in 3 parts: Part one is notes and questions to test student understanding of projectile motion including breaking down the horizontal and vertical components of this motion. Part two then introduces the concept of gravity acting on an object and how mass and distance from objects changes the force of gravity. Part three is an activity where students apply their knowledge of projectile motion to design a new angry bird.
