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
Energy Types and Resources
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Energy Types and Resources

(0)
This presentation is designed to be a brief introduction to the topic of Energy for Key Stage 3 pupils. It includes a discussion on the types of energy, where they come from and the different resources.
GCSE Waves Notes
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

GCSE Waves Notes

(0)
Designed for CCEA's Single Award Science (Physics) specification, these notes included information, cloze exercises and questions on the following areas: * transverse & longitudinal waves * wave properties and the wave equation * measuring the speed of sound * echoes & ultrasound * the electromagnetic spectrum
Energy Revision
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Energy Revision

(0)
Designed for use with Key Stage 3 and 4, these revision hexagons can be laminated and cut to provide a revision activity, either for individuals or groups. Hexagons contain terms on energy types, resources and other key terms from this topic.
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.
A Level Physics revision activity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

A Level Physics revision activity

(0)
Designed for CCEA’s A Level Physics specification, these hexagons are a great tool for revision purposes, as a starter or plenary, a group or individual exercise and can be tailored to suit the students and content. Topics include: Gravitational fields Magnetic fields Electric fields & capacitors Fundamental particles Particle accelerators Over 90 hexagons included with a few extra blanks for students/teachers to add their own ideas.
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.
Electrical Circuits
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

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.
Volume of Solids worksheet
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

Volume of Solids worksheet

(0)
Designed for Key Stage 3 Maths and Physics students, this worksheet includes a brief introduction/recap of the equation to calculate volume of a solid, some standard questions and finishes with extension questions for higher ability students which challenge both their mathematical and problem solving skills.
GCSE Space revision activity
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

GCSE Space revision activity

(0)
Designed for CCEA’s GCSE Science specifications, these hexagons are a great tool for revision purposes, as a starter or plenary, a group or individual exercise and can be tailored to suit the students and content. Topics include geocentric & heliocentric models, the solar system and Universe, stars, satellites and earthquakes. Over 50 hexagons included with a few extra blanks for students/teachers to add their own ideas.

Space revision hexagons
gemmacraig5gemmacraig5

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).
