The Heart: Create a Labelled Diagram

The Heart: Create a Labelled Diagram

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).

The Digestive System: Create a Labelled Diagram

The Digestive System: Create a Labelled Diagram

A differentiated resource for producing a labelled diagram of the digestive system. 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.

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR): Proton and Carbon

Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR): Proton and Carbon

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.

Drawing Sound Waves: KS3/Low Ability

Drawing Sound Waves: KS3/Low Ability

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).

The Space Race - Create a Timeline (non ICT resource)

The Space Race - Create a Timeline (non ICT resource)

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.

Solar System Information and Diagram (KS3/SEN)

Solar System Information and Diagram (KS3/SEN)

Here are information cards for various bodies within the solar system. Also included is a basic PowerPoint explaining the task and an A4 template. Place the information cards around the room and get students to create their own solar system diagrams. They can add varying degrees of information, and you can control the task by adding or removing pieces of information. I have also added a table that gives values for scaling the solar system, based on shrinking the Earth to 1 metre. This may be useful to explain to students or get them to calculate (higher ability) so that they can appreciate the scale of the solar system.

Adaptations: Presentation and Information Hunt

Adaptations: Presentation and Information Hunt

This is a lesson based around the concept of adaptations. Areas covered: - general and specific adaptations - surface area to volume ratios - camel case study - polar bear case study - cactus case study - summary questions The main tasks include an information hunt, there are a total of 24 cards with information about adaptations for camels/polar bears. These can be placed around the room and students must get up and annotate their diagrams. This is a great active learning task, and I often add rules such as you cannot move the information, and you can only write at your desk (forcing students to memorise small chunks of information). There is also a 10 mark exam style question that can be used as a plenary or homework. I have made the slides as informative as possible with lots of pictures (image credits within the PowerPoint notes section). For the worksheets I have created separate files for 'paper savers' these try to condense as much on to one A4 sheet (6 diagrams), especially important if you have printing restrictions.

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. Alternatively you can print the same page twice double-sided to produce flash cards.

Halogenoalkanes/Alkyl Halides: Naming, Substitution, Elimination

Halogenoalkanes/Alkyl Halides: Naming, Substitution, Elimination

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.
