KS3 Gravity Structure Strip and Answers

(0)
Differentiated questions for KS3 lessons on Gravity. These structure strips are designed to be printed off and glued into students books down the margin and then either used throughout the lesson, or as a task after covering theory, the students work their way through the questions. Not all students will be expected to complete the entire structure strip as it depends on target grades. The questions link directly to the learning objectives and ensure the the content is covered and allows students to stretch themselves. They could also be given as homework for consolidation or used for targeted revision. Students find these a great way to ensure they have met their objectives and it makes marking books easier. There are two versions of the structure strip: low ability and mid-high ability. Answers are included as a powerpoint presentation for all structure strip questions to allow self or peer assessment by students. If you like this resource, please check out my other resources as I will be uploading more structure strips for both KS3 and KS4 topics and please leave a quick review for my resource. Thanks

Complete lesson on the Ear and Hearing, designed for the new Activate Scheme but can be used for another syllabus’ as well. Includes various tasks and discussions around how hearing can be damaged. All answers are provided on the slides so students can self/peer assess. This lesson includes link to a videos to support learning. There is a differentiated worksheet on the structure of the ear and what each structure does. There is a low ability and high ability set of information sheets that can be printed on A3 and placed around the room for the students to use to fill in their worksheet. The lower ability information sheets are best printed in colour and have basic information on them needed to complete the diagram label and part and function match up. In contrast, the higher ability worksheet requires students to read a more detailed information sheet and extract the key information to include themselves when annotating the diagram.

KS3 Electricity Revision Pyramid & Answers

KS3 Electricity Revision Pyramid & Answers

(0)
This resource includes two question revision pyramids aimed at Low ability and mid/high ability for Year 7 on the topic of electricity. Answers are included on separate slides for peer or self assessment in lessons. I normally give the students a set amount of time e.g. 20 minutes for them to complete questions of their choice to reach a total of 100 points. Different level of questions are worth different amounts of points. This means students can choose the low level questions and have more to complete, or can choose the more challenging questions and complete less questions. It is a great revision tool for Year 7s and provides a challenge as students can become competitive to see who can get the most points. It is an engaging activity.

KS3 Forces Marking Sticker and Feedback
ejscienceresourcesejscienceresources

KS3 Forces Marking Sticker and Feedback

(1)
Attached is two resources, the first is the marking sticker. The second is a reference handout for students to use to help them when responding to marking and completing the tasks necessary to fill the gaps in their learning. This is designed for the start of the forces topic, focusing on what are forces and the different types of forces. On the marking sticker, then colour code the different learning outcomes when marking their books as either red, amber or green to make it simple for the pupils to see which outcomes they need to focus on and which they are fine with. Or these stickers could be altered by adding an additional column and using WWW and EBI instead. Both are effective methods of providing feedback for pupils. The bottom two boxes allow for tasks to be set and any more generalised feedback to be provided by ticking any relevant boxes. The second attachment is the resources to be used by the pupils in a feedback lesson (DIRT lesson). I print the slides off two to a page, back-to-back with one between two for pupils. This provides them with the tasks necessary to meet the learning objectives and close any gaps in learning. I find these tasks much easier for pupils to use than simply directing them to textbook pages. Some of the pictures and questions taken from other resources and compiled here. Hope these resources help with your marking and feedback, if so please leave a review and feel free to view other resources I have.

Turning Forces Differentiated Lesson and Tasks

Turning Forces Differentiated Lesson and Tasks

(0)
Here is a lesson I used with a top set year 8 class over a period of two lessons. the first lesson focused on what are moments, levers, pivots and turning forces with a practical to help students understand how the forces work. There are two different practicals, one for lower ability and one for higher ability. Following this, pupils can self assess on how they feel about moments and calculating them and then complete the releveant worksheet, self assess using the markscheme and then move onto the next level. This independent differentiated task allows for focus on helping those who are struggling more. The presentation is sectioned off so sections that aren’t needed in the lesson (e.g. LA in HA group) can be hidden by highlighting slides, right clicking and select Hide Slides. Hope this differentiated lesson and resources is helpful when teaching turning moments. Any feedback would be great and also check out any other resources. Thanks.

GCSE Physics P1.1-1.4 Energy Feedback Resources

(0)
Attached is two resources, the first is the marking sticker which can be either printed on paper and glued into the pupils books or printed onto sticker paper then put in their exercise books. The second is a reference handout for students to use to help them when responding to marking and completing the tasks necessary to fill the gaps in their learning. On the marking sticker, I colour code the different learning outcomes when marking their books as either red, amber or green to make it simple for the pupils to see which outcomes they need to focus on and which they are fine with. Or these stickers could be altered by adding an additional column and using WWW and EBI instead. Both are effective methods of providing feedback for pupils. The bottom two boxes allow for tasks to be set and any more generalised feedback to be provided by ticking any relevant boxes. I then follow this sticker with a personalised comment. The second attachment is the resources to be used by the pupils in a feedback lesson (DIRT lesson). I print the slides off two to a page, back-to-back with one between two for pupils. This provides them with the tasks necessary to meet the learning objectives and close any gaps in learning. I find these tasks much easier for pupils to use than simply directing them to textbook pages. Some of the pictures and questions taken from other resources and compiled here.

Attached are 5 lessons and worksheets for a very low ability Year 7 class on Electricity. Lessons are designed to go along with the worksheets. Practical activities need to be run alongside the lessons to support the learning. I can’t take credit for the worksheets as they were made by someone else. They were given to me by another teacher so I don’t know who made them to give them the credit. If you like the lessons, then please leave a review and view my other lessons and resources.

KS3 Electricity Marking Stickers and Feedback Tasks

(0)
KS3 Electricity Marking Stickers and Feedback Tasks covering the whole topic. There are two different versions of the marking sticker and activities. These are designed for most students with a second version for a very low ability group. Marking stickers: I will Red, Amber, Green each descriptor depending on whether the student has show evidence in their work that they have met this learning objective. The bottom part of the sticker is to tick if there are more generalised areas that students need to work such as presentation. The activities match the learning objectives from the stickers. I normally print these as information booklets with two slides to a page. Students can then flick through to any task numbers that they were Red on in their marking sticker and complete the task as explained in the yellow boxes. This should close the gap for the students in their learning. Please leave a review about how helpful you found this.
