Fully differentiated Catalysts lesson

Use the presentation and the lesson plan as an overview. 3 different worksheets (best printed as booklets) for different groups (struggling scientists are the lower ability groups). Lesson starts off with the most fabulous colour changing catalytic reaction showing that catalysts do not change or get used up in the reaction. I found it best to print these in small booklet form.

Differentiated Body Systems Levels of Organisation lesson - cells, tissue, organs (2018 Resource)

(0)
This resource is most suited to KS3 biologist or as a KS4 lesson for struggling scientists. The presentation has all of the information necessary for students, however a 2 page student text is available with all of the information on (and some extra for those you want to stretch) There are a range of activities to choose from depending on your groups. These include: - A set of notes in dyslexic font and comic sans. - A ready-to-complete graphic organiser to help students describe and give examples of levels of organisations (text books or the notes above are suitable aids). - A multiple choice question bank (11 questions) and answer sheet. - A cloze word search for your struggling scientists with an answer sheet. I have included a photograph of some of the resources.

Discovering Forces and drawing force arrows - Cartoon Text and Activities

(1)
Suitable for KS3 and SEN GCSE students. Learning Targets - to name some forces, draw suitable forces arrows, describe types of forces There are three parts to the resource, - a comic strip explaining what forces are and how to draw force arrows - a newspaper template for students to complete, with instructions - a comic strip type activity to demonstrate that they are able to draw force arrows, name forces and describe them. This type of resource presents information in a more student-friendly manner than textbooks, so very suitable for the reluctant reader.

Objectives: Understand the difference between alternating and direct current. Describe the role of the live wire and neutral wire in the mains electrical supply. How to read oscilloscope traces. How to use an oscilloscope. Suitable for higher or foundation. This is a complete lesson and includes: -Starter (on presentation) Complete presentation that clear explains and links to the objectives Plenary (on presentation) A worksheet that focuses on the objectives A feedback sheet that includes WWW and EBI as well as text to help them answer the feedback questions. I use this in conjunction with a demonstration of the oscilloscope and signal generator, although it is not essential as the presentation is very detailed.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Text and Worksheet - wavelength, frequency and properties of EM Waves

Electromagnetic Spectrum Text and Worksheet - wavelength, frequency and properties of EM Waves

(0)
Activity Length: 40 minutes Suitable for GCSE students of all abilities. This is a 3 part resource. The first is a comic book style text that introduces EM waves as being transverse and as waves of different lengths and frequency (there is an explanation as to what these terms mean). The second part is a user friendly worksheet, again in a comic book style, where students can use textbooks, video or internet to discover the uses, dangers, advantages, disadvantages, frequency and wavelengths of the spectrum. My students enjoy using the comic-book style textbooks, in particular my reluctant readers and dyslexic students, however, there should always be an alternative source information around, like a text book, to ensure that they are exposed to text of all types. The third is a powerpoint file of the comic book if you should wish to present it rather than printing it. The activity will challenge the higher abilities as they will be expected to apply their knowledge in a compare and contrast activity, while also being expected to produce work that shows a deeper understanding. Keywords: transverse wave, electromagnetic spectrum, light, communication,

These 3 resources each form a large circular shape, ideal for group work. There is also space for students to show their calculations, corrections etc. This is a very useful for peer to peer revision/learning in a low stress environment. The answers are provided. This was made using Formulator Tarsia and the original files have been included if you need to amend.
The Big Bang comic strip and newspaper activity

The Big Bang comic strip and newspaper activity

(0)
GCSE Physics, Big Bang, Red Shift, Expanding Universe, Cosmic Background radiation, microwaves, evidence, theory This activity is designed to get all abilities creating their own learning through comic strips and a newspaper type activity. Activity one students complete tasks in a newspaper style. Activity two, students can create comic strips. Brief information on the Big Bang, Red Shift and Cosmic Background radiation is included in the form of a comic strip (good for reluctant readers). Students then have to produce their own image that depicts the content of each scene, forcing them to engage with the text and personalise their learning. As an further activity or homework, students are given the template for the comic strips and instructed to produce their own more detailed version. Students do not need to be artistically gifted and can use a variety of material to create the images, ie a collage from old magazines, plasticine or even pieces of shaped pasta. The idea is that they think about the information and how they would like depict it, no matter how abstract.
