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,

This is suitable for struggling scientists at ks4 or KS3 at any level. Following the Specification of the new curriculum as at 2017, the lesson objectives are as follows: To understand the relationship between mass and weight, that mass is a property of an object and how to calculate weight using the equation W=mxg. The resource has a short introduction to mass and weight and has 2 activity sheets, one for low achievers and another for higher. I have included the .jpg files of each in case you wanted to put them in any other formats.

P13.5 X-Rays in Medicine (2018 Exam)

Objective: To understand what x-rays are used for, the dangers and safety precautions related to medical x-rays and how x-rays work. Clock activity is suitable for all abilities and can be used in a variety of ways: - "hot potato", seat students in pairs and issue the clock questions, in their pairs students choose a question and are given 2 minutes to find and write and answer. The sheets are all rotated and students choose another question to answer on the next sheet. Sheets are rotated 12 times and students end up with their original sheet in front of them. Go through the answers and students correct where appropriate. - give students information on x-rays (printed webpages, textbooks etc), and working in pairs complete the activity. Webquest activity is suitable for higher achievers. Students are required to complete a set of notes on a graphic organiser and then using only those notes, write a newspaper report. Both of these activities lend well to peer assessment and paired work.

Transverse and Longitudinal Waves Checkerboard Challenge - Differentiated

(0)
Suitable for all GCSE groups and higher KS3 Activity is designed to foster challenge in a fun and engaging way. The checkerboard is made up of a number of activities, each with a point value depending on difficulty. Students then choose the tasks they would like to do, however, teachers can control the level of challenge by assigning "total score targets" depending on ability. The activities force independent enquiry so it is always handy to have textbooks and dictionaries to hand if possible. Every time I have used this activity I am surprised by the enthusiasm and quality of work produced.

This is a lesson in a box - all you need for a great, engaging lesson! The resource is for all GCSE students from grade 1 to grade 8. It includes 2 knowledge organisers from which they answer the questions. The Organic Chemistry tube map question sheet (questions differentiated by the route colour) Tube Map Students are given instructions to get from one underground tube station to another answering questions or doing tasks along the way. Grade 1 - 3 Will use the black and yellow route Grade 4 - 6 will use the Red and yellow route Grade 7 upwards will use the brown and dark blue route (this is shown at the bottom of the worksheet). The activity is highly engaging as students try to navigate a route through stations. Although this works perfectly well as an independent task, students gain much from the discussions and debates around the answers. Your groups will be best set in pairs of similar achievement.

This activity can be used in a variety of ways. Students can be given the puzzle and activity sheets or just the activity. Alternatively the company "pin board" can be used as an excellent revision tool or starting point for notes. Another way in which to use it is to ask lower achieving students to complete an exam question using the board.
