Science Harry Potter Potions Carousel Lesson

Science Harry Potter Potions Carousel Lesson

The first slide should be printed and given to the class (one each). This gives them the instructions using all the HP names for the the potion 'ingredients'. The second slide gives the equipment needed for each station and the real world names of the 'ingredients'. I used this with low ability Y8 but could easily be used for any lower school class (or possibly primary?) as a fun intro to Science or end of term activity. I designed these to fit into an hour lesson, with 4 groups moving around 4 stations. Add/remove or modify activities depending on class age/size/ability. Please risk assess for you individual class and school.

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.

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.
