Magnets and Magnetic Field

(0)
This resource provides a really clear introduction to magnets and magnetic fields. I like to begin with a short demonstration of magnetic field lines using iron filings, before providing my students with a bar magnet and a mini compass to carry out a few investigations of their own. The lesson includes interesting links to how snow foxes using magnetic field lines and the earth’s magnetic field, and finishes with a short true-false quiz.
Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

Mitosis and the Cell Cycle

(0)
This resource, provides an easy to use, simple visual for an introductory lesson on mitosis and the cell cycle. The resources includes a couple of useful links to videos as well as a true false quiz on the topic.
Gravitational Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy

Gravitational Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy

(0)
This lesson begins with a ‘graph description’ activity and opportunity for students to make scientific predictions. Included in the first couple of slides are links to useful video resources for the topic. There is then an option of two different practical investigations. The first invites students to design an experiment testing how the gradient of a ramp effects the speed of the car, whilst the second asks how the height you drop the ball from effect the height of the bounce.
Plant and Animal Cells
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Plant and Animal Cells

(0)
This resources revises the difference between plant and animal cells, introduces the main cell organelles, their structure and function, as well as the main differences between prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells.
Sound and Energy Transfer

Sound and Energy Transfer

(0)
This easy-to-use PowerPoint resource introduces sound and how it travels. It links well to the particle model, solids, liquids and gases, and also includes a 6 mark question that requires students to use the speed, distance, time equation.
Pressure in Solids

Pressure in Solids

(0)
This resource introduces the equation for calculating pressure in solids and invites students to measure the pressure they exert on earth (graph paper is required for this activity). The resource includes a link to a video about lying on a bed of nails as well as a simple plenery that assesses student knowledge and understanding of the topic.
Electron Microscopy

Electron Microscopy

(0)
This resource introduces electron microscopy, compares light and electron microscopy and considers the advantages and disadvantages of light and electron microscopy.
Factors that effect the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

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.
Food Groups
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Food Groups

(0)
This resource introduces the different food groups, how and why they are broken down, and the tests used by scientists to find out which food groups different products contain.
Geological Time and Earth Evolution
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Geological Time and Earth Evolution

(1)
This resources provides useful images and videos to help stimulate discussion and learning about the evolution of life on earth. Students use the internet to help them construct diagrams of the geological time scale, including the times and names for the geological eras and periods, as well as descriptions of important events of life on Earth.
Photosynthesis
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Photosynthesis

(0)
This resource introduces photosynthesis, the work and symbol equation for photosynthesis, what happens to the glucose produced in photosynthesis and compares photosynthesis and respiration. The lesson concludes with three short answer past paper questions on photosynthesis.
The Structure and Function of the Kidneys
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

The Structure and Function of the Kidneys

(0)
This resources covers the structure and function of the kidney. It includes information about ultrafiltration and selective reabsorption, a series of activities for students to complete, useful diagrams and links to animations on the topic. It also covers how the volume of urine produced is controlled through negative feedback.
Controlling blood sugar
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Controlling blood sugar

(0)
This resource covers the control of blood sugar and what happens if you are unable to produce enough insulin. It includes useful links to animations on blood glucose control and questions for students to answer.
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.
Electromagnetic Spectrum
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Electromagnetic Spectrum

(0)
This resource introduces the electromagnetic spectrum, electromagnetic waves and the equation for wave speed. It includes a series of practice questions as well as a fun ‘unscrabble the words’ plenary activity.
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.
