Christmas Chemistry Colouring Activity - Proton Pix.

Christmas Chemistry Colouring Activity - Proton Pix.

Just the thing for the end of term - a Christmas-themed activity! Students work out the colour code by looking up the proton number of each element symbol shown in the picture (using the Periodic Table). They then either use that number on its own, or add or subtract proton numbers, to give the colour code. There is a key below the picture that allows the colour code to be converted to a colour. Ideal for familiarising students with elements on the Periodic Table, with a bit of seasonal fun thrown in. Aimed at key stage 3 but might also be enjoyed by some older students. PDF (larger image) and Word document versions included.

Christmas 2017 New Science Quiz

Christmas 2017 New Science Quiz

Just the thing for those last lessons before Christmas! This resource includes a PowerPoint presentation with 3 quiz rounds, including picture matching to event, and multiple choice questions - all about new science discoveries in 2017. It concludes with a Code-maker Challenge round in which pupils work in pairs to write a message to an alien space-craft (just sighted entering the Solar System). They then have to translate their message into Morse code and transmit it to two other students who 'receive' and translate the message back into English. Pupil score sheets and a copy of the Morse code alphabet are included in this resource. A class set of torches will need to be ordered for the lesson in order to complete Round 4. Have fun!

Activate 1:   P1:  Chaper 4  'Space' Topic Resources

Activate 1: P1: Chaper 4 'Space' Topic Resources

Full resources for the Activate 1 Space topic. Includes PPT presentations and activity resources for P1: 4.1 The Night Sky; P1: 4.2 The Solar System P1: 4.3 The Earth P1: 4.4 The Moon Please note that 2 additional lessons are included which can be used as separate lessons, time permitting. These cover the formation of the Solar System and Eclipses. These topics have been squashed in with P4.2 and P4.4, respectively. In my opinion, there is insufficient time to teach all the material in these 2 sections. I hope that you find this gives you the flexibility - you can either merge the lessons or teach as provided.
