Creating high quality resources across a variety of subjects. We have a particular passion for the sciences and languages.

A three lesson, 78 slide PowerPoint presentation on NMR. There is enough content here for three lessons covering areas:
- introduction to NMR
- solvents
- TMS
- carbon environments
- carbon NMR
- proton NMR
- integration and number of protons
- spin coupling/splitting patterns
There are five accompanying worksheets for students, and a teacher version with answers. There are also NMR chemical shift data sheets that can be printed out for students.
This has been written for the AQA A-Level specification, however, it is easily applicable to a variety of specifications.

A step by step presentation describing the background and calculations behind a redox titration. There is a brief overview about constructing half equations (in relation to potassium permanganate reduction), with a task for students to construct their own for potassium dichromate.
The lesson then covers calculations for working out the percentage iron concentration in a table. The worksheet gives 6 long form questions based around this. There is an answer sheet in the excel document, and a very simple question generator that you can use.
This lesson is aimed at A-Level students, but could potentially be applicable to some high level GCSE groups.

A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of a flowering plant. There are two main versions of this activity, but both of them require the information cards. These can be printed out and placed around the room.
The first version is an all in one A4 sheet that has the diagram and labels that can be cut out and stuck on. This is better suited to lower ability students, they can find out where the parts are by looking at the information around the room.
The second version requires the diagram with no labels. Students have to collect the information from around the room and write it on their diagram. I run this as a memory game, giving students two rules: they can only write on their diagram at their desk, and they cannot move the information sheets.

This is a fully differentiated activity for the labelling of theheart. There are several different ways this resource can be used depending on the group ability and year, see the information file for examples.
For lower ability groups there is a simple cut and stick activity, where students create a resource that they can test themselves with (seen in the cover image).
Alternatively there are information sheets that you can place around the room, which students can use to annotate their diagram. I normally run this activity with a set of rules: they can only write at their desk and they cannot remove the information. This means they have to memorise small pieces of information in a short space of time. This makes for an excellent active learning task.
Note: I create all my resources with the greatest care to detail and I hope that they can provide your classes with fun and informative activities. All my premium resources feature images that are my own or that are in the public domain (creative commons attribution given where necessary).

A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of a reflex arc. There are two main versions of this activity, but both of them require the information cards. These can be printed out and placed around the room.

A 58 slide PowerPoint covering the topic of halogenoalkanes (AKA alkyl halides). The PowerPoint has enough content for three distinct lessons:
1) Naming and Drawing
2) Substitution
3) Elimination
Mechanisms are outlined for each substitution with a small introduction to drawing mechanisms. There is an assumption of basic knowledge of organic chemistry such as nomenclature (alkanes). Each area has an accompanying worksheet with questions for students, there are also answers for the teacher. I have also included a key information summary sheet for each mechanism (ideal as a handout).
This resource is based around the AQA A-Level chemistry specification, however, it should be easily applicable to other specifications.

A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of the ear. There are two main versions of this activity, but both of them require the information cards. These can be printed out and placed around the room.
The first version is an all in one A4 sheet that has the diagram and labels that can be cut out and stuck on. This is better suited to lower ability students, they can find out where the parts are by looking at the information around the room.
The second version requires the diagram with no labels. Students have to collect the information from around the room and write it on their diagram. I run this as a memory game, giving students two rules: they can only write on their diagram at their desk, and they cannot move the information sheets.
The PowerPoint features an example for students to follow (for the cut and stick). It also has the diagram for you to project and annotate on a white board if necessary.

This is a pack of 32 information cards for various events, people, probes, and animals involved in the space race between the USSR and USA. They cover the events from the initial proposal of the space race up to the first manned Moon landing.
There is an introductory PowerPoint to give students an overview, then the main task of creating the timeline. I would get students to create their timelines on either A3 paper, or two A4 pieces stuck together in landscape. You can also print out several packs of cards and get students to arrange them in historical order prior to starting their timeline. I would also suggest that rather than just writing the information down, students could also sketch a diagram or picture to represent various events. You could even turn it into a competition to see who can make the best poster/timeline and display the winner on notice boards (or give various awards).
This task is perfect for when you don't have access to ICT facilities, or you have lower ability groups who struggle with finding the correct information. It is also perfect for groups you cannot trust to be sensible with ICT facilities.

This is a card sort to help students learn the names of furniture in French (20 words). This would be a useful task with younger groups or low ability groups. There are three separate files, depending on how you want to present the task.
- The 'teacher copy' shows a grid with all items already matched.
- The 'student version' is a random layout, print this out and give to students, They can then cut out the items and match them, or stick them into their workbooks.
- The 'quick cut' is designed so that you can produce 10 packs of cards quickly and easily using a guillotine. Each page has the same card 10 times over. This allows you to remove words that may not be suitable or needed.

A PowerPoint with worksheets that covers the concepts of redox chemistry. Half-equations are introduced, including combining of half-equations. Oxidation states (oxidation numbers) are covered, with reference as to how this can be used to identify oxidation and reduction processes. Construction of and balancing of complex half-equations is also covered, using the KOHES method.
In total, five worksheets with solutions, and an 80 slide PowerPoint that will give students the fundamental rules and skills required for tackling more complex redox and electrochemistry topics.

This is a lesson that teaches students the key parts of sound waves (peak, trough, amplitude, and wavelength). It teaches them how changing the properties of a sound (pitch/volume) changes the shape of the wave. There is also a step by step instruction showing students how they can accurately draw their own waves.
This is a perfect task for low ability or younger groups and a great task as part of a sound topic. I've have used it personally with several classes and they always enjoy producing accurate pieces of work that they are proud of (I have included a sample from one of my SEN students).
