Physical and Chemical Changes

Physical and Chemical Changes

(0)
This resource provides an easy to use, simple and useful introduction to the differences between physical and chemical changes. The first slide can be used as a starter, to initiate discussion and inspire students to offer up ideas about the differences between physical and chemical changes. The second and third slides provide a useful visual that can be used to help explain the differences between physical and chemical changes. The resource also includes some fun, quick quizzes to help assess the class’s understanding of the differences between physical and chemical changes.
Pure and Impure
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Pure and Impure

(0)
This resource explains the difference between pure and impure substances, challenges students to compare graphs of pure and impure substances, and explains what is happening at a particle level during heating. Students then complete a simple practical where they measure the temperature of a substance as they heat it and then use a graph of their results to conclude whether or not the substance was pure or impure.
Standard Form
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Standard Form

(0)
This resource introduces standard form, what it is and why it is useful. It includes a useful link to an animation on the topic, and questions with answers to give students practice on writing numbers in standard form.
States of Matter and the Particle Model
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

States of Matter and the Particle Model

(0)
This resource provides an easy-to-use introduction to the three states of matter and the particle model. By the end of the lesson, students should be able to confidently compare the properties of solids, liquids and gases, using the particle model.
Factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction

Factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction

(0)
This resource considers four factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction: temperature, pH, concentration of enzyme, and concentration of substrate. This resource includes enough information and visual aids to fill 2 or 3 lessons. When I teach this topic, my students carry out a simple experiment, looking at the rate of hydrogen peroxide decomposition, to provide experimental evidence for the effect of pH and temperature on enzyme (catalase) activity.
Chromatography
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Chromatography

(0)
This resource introduces the three types of chromatography: paper chromatography, thin-layer chromatography, and gas chromatography. It compares the stationary phases (does not move) and mobile phases (does move) of these three types of chromatography. It also explains how to calculate Rf values and how colourless substances can be located on a thin-layer or paper chromatogram.
Atoms and Elements
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Atoms and Elements

(0)
This PowerPoint provides a creative and easy to use resource for introducing atoms, elements, and the differences between them. It includes a few shorter activities that engage students as well as a longer writing task.
Changes of State
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Changes of State

(0)
This fun, creative and easy to use resource provides a great framework for an introductory lesson on the changes of state. The starter tests prior knowledge about the properties of solids, liquids and gases, and the particle model of matter. The lesson introduces a series of key terms, a graph drawing activity as well as an opportunity for students to complete a piece of extended writing or story board.
Experiment Write Up Scaffold

Experiment Write Up Scaffold

(0)
The following resource provides a helpful scaffold for students when designing, completing, recording, analysing and evaluating science experiments. I change the image and question on the first slide, depending on the experiment I plan on carrying out with my class. The second and third slides remain the same every time. This resource is adaptable, easy to use, and appropriate for KS3 and KS4 students.
Risks and Hazards
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Risks and Hazards

(0)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource introduces risks and hazards in the science laboratory. It introduces ten of the most common hazard symbols and their meanings and encourages students to test their knowledge using a fun ‘pictionary’ plenary activity, where students take it in turn to draw a hazard symbol whilst their peers have to race to correctly name the symbol being drawn.
The Period Table
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

The Period Table

(0)
This easy-to-use resource provides a fun and creative introduction to the Periodic Table. It includes a series of activities that build knowledge and understanding about the chemical elements.
Metals and Acids
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Metals and Acids

(0)
This resource introduces reactions between metal and acids, word and symbol equations, as well as the squeeky pop test.
Polymers
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Polymers

(0)
This resource introduces synthetic and natural polymers, it challenges students to interpret data about different polymers, use information to decide which jobs different polymers could be used for, plot a graph based on scientific data, and research different types of polymers.
Factors effecting the rate of diffusion
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Factors effecting the rate of diffusion

(0)
This resource introduces diffusion and the factors that effect the rate of diffusion, in a fun and interactive way. The lesson includes a simple experiment to test how temperature effects the rate of diffusion.
Molecules and Compounds
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Molecules and Compounds

(0)
This PowerPoint provides a useful and easy-to-use visual aid for discussing the similarities and differences between molecules and compounds. It follows on from my ‘Atoms and Elements’ lesson (available on TES) and introduces the idea that compounds have different properties to the elements that make them up.
Rock Cycle Key Terms
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Rock Cycle Key Terms

(0)
This resources includes the key terms for the rock cycle topic. I encourage students to cut out the key terms and stick them onto their rock cycle posters, as a revision activity at the end of the module. I also use this resource to play games, such as “this is the answer, what is the question?” It is a simple and easy to use resource.
Graph Drawing Marking Framework
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Graph Drawing Marking Framework

(0)
This graph drawing resource functions as both a checklist and marking framework for students. At the start of my graph drawing activity, I hand students a copy of the marking framework and remind the students how to draw a scientific graph. Students then use the checklist as they draw their graphs to ensure they have included everything they need for full marks. Students then either hand in their graphs or swap graphs with their peers and the marking framework is used to give students a grade for their graphs.
