Heat Energy and Temperature

(1)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource helps explain the difference between heat energy and temperature. It includes questions for students to answer and a link to a useful video on the topic.
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.
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.
Heart Structure and Heart Dissection
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Heart Structure and Heart Dissection

(0)
This resource introduces the structure of the heart and double circulatory system. The second slide can be used both to introduce the different parts of the heart or as an assessment-for-learning activity at the end of the lesson. The third slide includes a worksheet that can be printed off and handed out to the students, for them to complete before the heart dissection. I usually project the fourth slide during the heart dissection to help students identify the different parts of the heart as they carry out their dissections. If there is time at the end of the lesson, I introduce the double circulatory system via an active learning activity, where students circulate around the classroom, holding either blue or red counters to represent deoxygenated and oxygenated red blood cells.
Changes of State

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.
Diffusion

Diffusion

(0)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource introduces the process of diffusion. It includes a fun starter and plenary, useful video link and framework for a simple diffusion experiment.
Density
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Density

(0)
This fun, creative and easy-to-use resource introduces the equation for density and includes practice questions for students to answer. It also includes a useful visual to help students understand why some objects float whilst others sink and invites students to carry out their own research on Archimedes.
How to light a Bunsen Burner
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

How to light a Bunsen Burner

(0)
This creative, fun and easy-to-use resource introduces the Bunsen Burner, what the different parts of the Bunsen Burner are called and how to use it. It includes a worksheet that can be printed out to support the practical activity and assessment-for-learning activities.
Features of a Wave
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Features of a Wave

(0)
This creative and easy-to-use resource introduces mechanical waves, the key features of waves, and the main differences between longitudinal and transverse waves. It includes links to useful videos on the topic, short activities, and a plenary. Slide 10 of the PowerPoint is the worksheet I hand out to my students, either to fill in as we go through the material or as a revision activity afterwards.
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.
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.
Heat Transfers: Conduction, Convection, Radiation
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Heat Transfers: Conduction, Convection, Radiation

(0)
This simple to use and engaging resource provides a useful framework for a lesson on conduction, convection and radiation. Depending on how much time is available to you, I like to demonstrate conduction through particles by inviting my students to stand next to each other, shoulder to shoulder, vibrating slowly. I then “transfer energy” to one of the students, invting them to vibrate faster, knocking the students (particles) on either side of them, transferring the energy on. To help demonstrate convection, I use the potassium permanganate practical. I usually allow the students to carry out a practical on radiation during the following lesson.
The Menstrual Cycle
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

The Menstrual Cycle

(0)
This resource introduces the menstrual cycle and the main hormones involved in regulating the cycle. It includes a fun snakes-and-ladders game to help students learn more about what happens at each stage of the cycle and encourages students to create their own summary resource.
Efficiency of Biomass Transfer
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Efficiency of Biomass Transfer

(0)
This resource covers pyramids of biomass and calculating the efficiency of biomass transfer. It explains how pyramids of biomass are draw, why biomass decreases at each topic level, and the equation for calculating the efficiency of biomass transfer.
Gravitational Potential Energy and Kinetic Energy
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

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.
Anaerobic Respiration
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Anaerobic Respiration

(0)
This resource introduces anaerobic respiration and compares aerobic and anaerobic respiration. The lesson begins an activity comparing the equations for aerobic and anaerobic respiration, it then explains why people get stitches and pant heavily after exercise. It considers the advantages and disadvantages of anaerobic respiration and how it can be used commercially. The resource includes past paper questions and answers, as well as a graph for students to describe and explain.
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.
Enzymes
harriet_newhouseharriet_newhouse

Enzymes

(0)
This resources provides a fun and colourful introduction to enzymes. It is both a useful visual aid and includes past paper questions for students to answer. The resource defines enzymes as biological catalysts, made of protein, and breaks this definition down so that it is easy to understand. It introduces the lock and key theory as well as denaturation.
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.
