Solar System Fact Sheet
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Solar System Fact Sheet

(2)
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.
Wave Properties

Wave Properties

(0)
Designed for Key Stage 3 and 4 Physics this worksheet and accompanying PowerPoint presentation introduce key terms wavelength and amplitude, allowing for both measuring and drawing waves in the worksheet questions.
Resistors card sort activity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Resistors card sort activity

(0)
Designed for GCSE Physics students, this card sort is a matching activity for combinations of resistors. Cards contain 24 different combinations of resistors in series and parallel for students to match up with the correct answers. This can be used as a starter, plenary or within the lesson itself as an alternative, or introduction to calculations involving resistors. The full set could be used with small groups, or a set could be split with a smaller number of cards available for individual students. There is also the opportunity to differentiate for higher and lower ability students.
GCSE Waves Notes

Electrical Circuits

(0)
These presentations are designed for Key Stage 3 students learning about current in electrical circuits. Circuits includes a recap of circuit symbols and an investigation on how the arrangement of a circuit will affect the brightness of a bulb. Investigating Resistance has the instructions for investigating the relationship between length of a wire and its resistance. There is also a slide on variable resistors.
A Level Physics Taboo activity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

A Level Physics Taboo activity

(0)
Designed for CCEA's A Level Physics specification this activity can be used for revision, a starter or plenary to assess learning. Taboo cards can be printed and laminated, and students can work as a class or in smaller groups. The aim of the game is for one team member to explain the key term at the top of the card, without using the listed words below, in a set time. Topics include: * Circular and simple harmonic motion * Nuclear fission and fusion * Particle accelerators and fundamental particles * Specific heat capacity and gas laws * Capacitors * Momentum and collisions * Electric and magnetic fields
Plotting Graphs in Physics
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Plotting Graphs in Physics

(0)
These 3 documents include: * a PowerPoint presentation to discuss the different types of graphs and key features needed when plotting graphs * a supporting set of notes for students * practice questions These are designed for Key Stage 3 students to support their analysis of experimental results.
Forensics Revision

Forensics Revision

(0)
Designed for CCEA's GCSE Single Award Science (Chemistry) specification these hexagons can be cut out and laminated for use as a revision exercise or to allow students to structure extended answers. Blank hexagons are included for students or teachers to add extra ideas. Topics covered include: * fingerprints * fibres * forgery
Volume of solids worksheet
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Volume of solids worksheet

(0)
A worksheet of 4 questions on volume, designed for Key Stage 3 students studying either Maths or Physics. Worksheet contains space for calculations.
Space research worksheet
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Space research worksheet

(0)
Designed for students in Key Stage 3 this worksheet includes five specific questions for students to answer (either as research or from content learned in lessons) on the Big Bang theory, satellites and telescopes. The second half of this sheet is a research task where students (either individually or in groups) should investigate two of the five named telescopes.
Current and Voltage in Circuits
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Current and Voltage in Circuits

(0)
Designed for Key Stage 3 Physics students, this presentation discusses the differences between series and parallel circuits, uses the analogy of a supermarket lorry delivering stock to explain voltage and an opportunity for students to investigate current in series and parallel.
Waves Revision activity - hexagons
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

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.
GCSE Static Electricity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

GCSE Static Electricity

(0)
Designed for GCSE students studying Electrostatics in Physics, these two resources include explanations of how static electricity occurs, some simple experiments to demonstrate static electricity in action and discussion on the dangers of statics. The worksheet of questions includes a mark scheme.
Measuring Length at Key Stage 3
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Measuring Length at Key Stage 3

(0)
Designed as an introduction to measurements in Science, this PowerPoint begins by familiarising students with length, the units and instruments used to measure it. There are some activities described such as measuring lengths of objects and how to measure the thickness of a piece of paper. This is designed for students in their first year (7) of post-primary education, but could also be used with those in the later stages of primary school.

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).
