Life Cycles Assessment (AQA Chemistry - Using Resources)

Life Cycles Assessment (AQA Chemistry - Using Resources)

Whole lesson for Life Cycles Assessment part of the using resources unit. Designed for AQA 1-9, new specification. Starter, exam question, information to collect and comparison needs to be made to give an opinion in the style of a 6 mark question. Information and pictures included so that the students can collect the information that they think they will need to answer the question. I have also put together a work sheet with the question to answer, the mark scheme, space for their notes and space to fully answer the question. I will then review the answers before the next lesson and set targets for improvement.

Water Purification (Using resources: Potable Water AQA 1-9)

Water Purification (Using resources: Potable Water AQA 1-9)

Water purification (Potable Water) for AQA 1-9. Power point and practical sheet. Students test the pH of 3 types of water (any available will do), and then evaporate off to see if any solid is left behind. The worksheet gives a full method plus space for students to record results and answer questions on the method (preparing for exams).

Biology Revision (Digestion, Enzymes, Respiratory System, Healthy Diet)

Biology Revision (Digestion, Enzymes, Respiratory System, Healthy Diet)

Revision lesson for the first unit of Biology in Y8 (AQA). Looks at key words and definitions, a quiz quiz trade activity and differentiated exam question to extend learning (scaffolding is given in the notes on the power point). Please read the notes on the power point for how key word activities and exam questions are intended to be used.

Chemistry Revision - Introduction to Chemistry (Y8)

Chemistry Revision - Introduction to Chemistry (Y8)

Revision lesson following a unit introducing chemistry and the idea of chemical reactions. Atomic structure, using the periodic table, how we know a reaction is happening, choosing elements for a purpose and properties of elements. Differentiated task, key word activity, extensions and peer assessment. Please read the notes in the power point for directions of how the tasks are intended to be completed.

Choosing Elements for a Purpose (Y8)

Choosing Elements for a Purpose (Y8)

Whole lesson with activities to encourage students to discuss ideas and use information to make decisions about the most appropriate choices for applications. Consideration of safety, cost, state etc.

Introduction to Chemistry: Elements and Reactions (LA or SEN)

Introduction to Chemistry: Elements and Reactions (LA or SEN)

Designed to introduce a low ability/SEN class to chemistry. Demo group 1 metals in water and potassium iodide + lead nitrate to spark interest. They then carry out their own investigations to find out about the properties of some chemicals and their reactivity. Worksheet included for them to record all their observations/results.

Atoms, Elements and Reactions

Atoms, Elements and Reactions

Introduction to the structure of the atom, using the periodic table to find information and how we know that a chemical reaction has happened. I did three demos in this lesson showing three different ways we might know a reaction has happened and this generated lots of discussion. The worksheet gives the reactions for the demos and gives the class tasks for each reaction (e.g. identify the elements and compounds in the reaction).

Atomic Structure

Atomic Structure

I used this as a revision lesson at the end of the unit, but would work equally well as a follow up lesson after teaching atomic structure. Key word activity, AfL, differentiated exam question, literacy task. Please see the notes in the power point for direction on how I carry out the key words activity. Levelled worksheets are shown on the hidden slide, I hand annotated these as can be seen on the pictures. My class found these very helpful.

Covalent Bonding

Covalent Bonding

Designed for AQA (1-9) specification. Covers the basics of covalent bonding, worked examples need to be completed on the whiteboard. Quick test leading to differentiated task.

Group 7 Elements

Group 7 Elements

Designed for AQA (1-9) specification. Includes activity and tasks. Put together for a lesson where no lab was available, so no practical included here.

Group 0 and 1 Elements

Group 0 and 1 Elements

Designed for AQA (1-9) specification. I did the group 1metals an water demo, instructions not included but readily available.

Ionic Bonding

Ionic Bonding

Designed for AQA (1-9) specification. Recap atomic and electronic structure. Activity to assess understanding which then leads into a differentiated task.

Elements, Atoms and Compounds

Elements, Atoms and Compounds

Introduction to using the periodic table, atoms, elements, reactions and compounds. Worksheet to test use of the periodic table and a diagram of an atom to label. The demos could be anything to show different ways that we know a chemical reaction is happening and show elements and compounds reacting. I did demos of burning magnesium, acid + bicarb, lead nitrate + potassium iodide.

Atomic Structure Bundle

Atomic Structure Bundle

Covers most of the atomic structure unit of the AQA (1-9) specification + covalent and ionic bonding. You will just need to add in a lesson on the atomic model and electronic structure (I downloaded good lessons for these from tes) but everything else you need is here.

The Development of the Periodic Table

The Development of the Periodic Table

For the starter activity provide the class with some information about the elements. This can be tailored to your class, giving more or less information depending on ability (easily found on the web). Scavenger hunt activity about the scientists and their contribution to the development of the periodic table with a table to fill in. I have sanitised the information and cut down the amount of information that they need to read so that this can be completed in 10 minutes. AfL leading to a differentiated exam question. I had 3 sheets scaffolded to different levels. The scaffolding I provided is given on page 2 of the word document.
