A Christmas Crime Scene! Christmas Science Chemistry Activity for KS3 and KS4 New for 2017!

A Christmas Crime Scene! Christmas Science Chemistry Activity for KS3 and KS4 New for 2017!

Some presents have been stolen from under your tree! The police have found 5 clues at the scene of the crime: some different powders, a shoe print, some fibres and a handwritten christmas card. It’s s down to you to use your problem solving skills and knowledge of chromatography and ions tests to determine which of the 32 suspects stole the presents! The only thing you can't find out is why... Students should be given the brief and an hour to try to solve all the clues. The 5 clues are: -A shoe print - they have to problem solve to figure out which of the 6 it is. -2 different fibres - they must look at the properties of the materials and decide which items of clothing they came from. - An ionic compound - they must use knowledge of testing for ions to name the compounds and then assign the right name to the powder found at the scene. Don't worry, there is step by step information for classes that have not yet studied this. - A second compound - students will use a flow chart to attempt to name this powder! - A handwritten christmas card from the thief that just says 'Sorry!' - Students have to find the Rf values from the chromatograms from the ink at the scene and from the pens found on the suspects. This is a Christmas crime with a twist! This is geared more towards KS4 chemistry, but I have done it with a few different sets of year 9 groups and they have loved it! As the teacher, you will control the clues and some of the information about what was found at the scene. The pieces of information given to the students are outlined in the PowerPoint either on slide 1 or in the notes section of the slide. THERE ARE NO PRACTICALS PLANNED WITH THIS ACTIVITY! ALL YOU NEED TO DO IS SOME PRINTING. You could incorporate practicals in with it if you wanted to, but it is not planned to need any. It is planned to be as low maintainance as possible.

NEW EDEXCEL 9-1 Physics Topic 2 - Forces and Motion FULL TOPIC

NEW EDEXCEL 9-1 Physics Topic 2 - Forces and Motion FULL TOPIC

Full unit of work covering both Higher and foundation as well as the separate sciences for the new GCSE physics course for Edexcel (9-1). Mentioned worksheets or activities are included, as well as a specification for technicians to help with equipment orders and requisitions. Where possible, all lessons are fully resources and differentiated. I have used these lessons with a top set triple award class, and a bottom set combined group. Test assessments are includes, but they are just a mix of the questions given by Pearson, so I cannot claim ownership of these. They have been separated into sections to give a PLC for each student for revision purposes.

Edexcel Physics 9-1 (2016) Topic 3 - Conservation of Energy with resources

Edexcel Physics 9-1 (2016) Topic 3 - Conservation of Energy with resources

Full topic following the specification points for the new 9-1 GCSE in Combined science and Physics for Edexcel. All lessons are in 1 large presentation, clearly showing the progression of the module and linking previous ideas to new ones. There are clear links to forces (Topic 2), radioactivity (topic 6) and Electricity (topic 11). - 8 ish hours for this topic, but revision/test/feedback can be condensed if necessary. Differentiated tasks - There are opportunities to challenge high abilities given on the slides in red boxes with numerous pit-stops or mini plenaries in every lesson. Lessons include: - Conservation of energy - Energy Efficiency - Keeping Warm - Non-renewable sources - Renewable sources - Revision This Resource also includes a homework task. The assessment for this lesson has been given by Pearson, and is therefore not included in this resource.

NEW GCSE PHYSICS FOR EDEXCEL 9-1 Topic 5 - Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS)

NEW GCSE PHYSICS FOR EDEXCEL 9-1 Topic 5 - Light and the Electromagnetic Spectrum (EMS)

1 PowerPoint that includes all lessons for both combined and separate science pathways in the new GCSE specification 2016. I have used these resources with a top set triple year 10 group and a bottom set year 9 group with good results so it is well differentiated where possible. If any resources are mentioned but NOT included it is because I did not make them and therefore am not selling them. Check out the free resource part of my page to find it, or contact me and I will send it to you! This includes the tests/assessments. Revision resources are also included.

NEW GCSE PHYSICS EDEXCEL 9-1 Topic 3 - Waves

2 PowerPoints; one for Combined and one for the Separate science course as they are quite different. I have used these resources with a top set triple year 10 group and a bottom set year 9 group with good results so it is well differentiated where possible. If any resources are mentioned but NOT included it is because I did not make them and therefore am not selling them.

The Solar System - New (2015) KS3 fully differentiated topic WITH assessment.

The Solar System and Beyond. This full topic is a merge between the old 7L (Solar System and Beyond) and 9J (Satellites and Space) into the 2-year KS3 new scheme of work. The topic covers 7 one-hour lessons and an assessment lesson. As this is part of the new KS3 scheme of work there are NO LEVELS required or given. The topic covers: - Days and nights - Seasons and years - Phases of the moon - Solar and lunar eclipses - The planets - Comets and asteroids. - Gravity and orbits - Satellites (natural and artificial) - Space exploration (landers, rovers, orbiters etc.) All learning objectives are on the PowerPoints and all activities that are mentioned are fully resourced and ready to go! Some lesson slides have animations on them that the pupils will LOVE and will help them to remember the key information. There are running themes throughout the topic (the NASA boss the pupils work for) to engage pupils with the activities and for them to take pride in their learning. Some of the files are large because they are so complete and well resourced so please be patient. It's worth it! Files included: - 6 PowerPoints (L1, L2, L3, L4 and L5, L6, L7) - Card sort for lesson 1 - Moon phases worksheet for lesson 3 - Moon homework for lesson 3 - Planet fact cards and table for lessons 4 and 5 - An Excel spreadsheet containing the data for the temperatures of the planets - Exploration methods fact sheet for lesson 7 - Assessment on the topic with mark scheme PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO LEAVE A REVIEW!

Christmas Activity Challenge (Science/Literacy based) for all abilities. Fully differentiated.

Christmas Activity Challenge (Science/Literacy based) for all abilities. Fully differentiated.

Up to 2 hours of christmas related activities with a fun challenge to appeal to all age groups and abilities. The first set of activities are fully differentiated, where pupils can chose their challenge. If they complete a lower challenge, they get less points, but there is a first finisher bonus. The choice is theirs. There is also a science reindeer classification key activity. The second set of activities are a little more crafty with mathematics and symmetry coming in to one of the activities. There are also different challenges for different amounts of points. Pupils could work individually or alone.
