Drawing Ions Step by step guide with practice

(0)
I created this worksheet as a support sheet for students struggling with drawing the structure of ions in preparation for drawing ionic bonds. This worksheet is best printed off on A3 and works to walk students through the steps involved in determining the electronic configuration of elements first as atoms and then when they form ions. The layout is in a style that allows students to easily follow the process. Have used a similiar format in the past on calculation style questions in physics and students loved it!
Energy and Power KS3
ejscienceresourcesejscienceresources

Energy and Power KS3

(0)
Complete lesson and worksheet on Energy and Power with worked examples and calculations. Lesson will take between 1-2 lessons depending on ability of group. The lesson works through what is power, then on to changing between units with some practice questions before moving onto the Power equations and practicing using them to calculate energy, power and time. Questions increase in difficulty with more longer questions later on. All answers are included to allow students to self assess. The lesson then goes on to looking at how to calculate cost of electricity. Hope you like it. If so, please leave a review.
KS3 Energy Dissipation

KS3 Energy Dissipation

(0)
Attached is a complete lesson on Energy dissipation for KS3 Energy Transfers topic. It covers energy dissipation, energy transfers and efficiency calculations. For high ability students you could get them to have a go at creating Sankey diagrams on wasted and useful energy. I have created a step by step narrative on Efficiency calculations that can be used as an activity with the students. You may find that the high ability students do not need this extra support. Hope you find this complete lesson with resources helpful. Please leave a review.

KS3 The Ear and Hearing
ejscienceresourcesejscienceresources

KS3 The Ear and Hearing

(1)
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 Forces Marking Sticker and Feedback

KS3 Forces Marking Sticker and Feedback

(2)
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.
KS3 The Eye and Vision

KS3 The Eye and Vision

(0)
Complete lesson on the Eye and Vision, designed for the new Activate Scheme but can be used for another syllabus’ as well. Includes various tasks and discussions around how the eye works and what causes vision to be blurry and how to correct. All answers are provided on the slides so students can self/peer assess. It starts with a word serahc on keywords linked to the eye and light to familiarise students with some of the spellings. There is a differentiated worksheet on the structure of the eye and what each structure does. There is a 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. There is then a gap fill activity on the worksheet that can be completed while discussing short-sighted and long-sighted vision and how to correct. Check out my other resources and if you like this lesson, please leave a review.

KS3 Electromagnets Revision Pyramid

(0)
KS3 Electromagnets Revision Pyramid Activity. Answers are also included to allow for self/peer assessment. Students have to answer as many questions as they can to reach 100 points in a certain time. This is a great activity for revision purposes and allows students to differentiate the level of questioning they answer as different questions are worth different amounts of points with harder questions being worth more.
P3 Energy Resources Topic Structure Strips and Answers
ejscienceresourcesejscienceresources

P3 Energy Resources Topic Structure Strips and Answers

(0)
Differentiated questions for each lesson in the P3 Energy Resources topic for AQA GCSE Physics and answers to go with them. 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 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. The questions are split into three main groups: Bronze (Red) questions are targeted at Grade 4 Silver (Amber) questions are targeted at Grade 6 Gold (Green) questions are targeted at Grade 8 Star questions are challenge questions. Structure strips are included for the following lessons; Energy demands Energy from wind and water Power from the Sun and the Earth Energy and the environment Big energy issues 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

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.
