Here you will find a range of PowerPoint presentations, student notes, worksheets and research materials for students from Key Stage 2 up to Key Stage 5 for Science, Maths and Physics.
Solar System Fact Sheet
gemmacraig5

Solar System Fact Sheet

(0)
This resource contains a table (teacher version and cloze exercise) with facts about planets in our solar system. Students can either research the missing information or a teacher-led discussion could help to complete the answers. Additional uses for this resource could be the basis of a larger research project or investigation, a comparison between planets or a method of discovering patterns in the planet properties. A further use could be to incorporate this table as part of a data analysis task. Due to the wide range of uses this worksheet could be used for all Years in Key Stage 3.

Waves Revision activity - hexagons
gemmacraig5

Waves Revision activity - hexagons

(0)
Designed for use with Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4, this activity includes over 50 hexagons on waves, their properties, the electromagnetic spectrum and its uses and dangers. There are also some blank hexagons for use by staff or students. This activity is great for both individual students and groups to revise a topic, as a plenary to introduce a topic and assess current knowledge or as a method for structuring extended answers. It allows students to not only recall information, but also to see links within the topic.
Space revision hexagons
gemmacraig5

Space revision hexagons

(0)
This resource includes hexagons for Earth and Space topics including the Big Bang theory, seasons, day and night, development of our understanding of the solar system, satellites, telescopes and blank hexagons which students and/or teachers can add their own ideas. These hexagons make a great end of topic revision exercise, allowing students to organise their learning, spotting links between concepts and discussing their ideas. This can be done as an individual or group exercise (I tend to use small groups, laminate the hexagons and simply ask students to sort the cards).
