Making Soluble Salts - Copper Sulphate (Required Practical AQA)

(0)
2 options. Full lesson. Includes starter, method, diagrams to refer to during the practical and differentiated plenary questions. Suitable to use for AQA required practical. Print sheet and give one per student. Second option requires the students to say why they are carrying out each step in order to prepare them for the exam. Prompts are given to help scaffold or can be removed for higher ability groups.
Required Practical - Rates of Reaction (AQA) - Changing Concentration

Required Practical - Rates of Reaction (AQA) - Changing Concentration

(1)
This gives a one sheet document that can be printed out and used by the class to complete the required practical. There is a sheet for both part 1 (disappearing cross) and part 2 (volume of gas). For part 1 I have included two options - the second slide is my preferred option and gives the students more guidance (this is the hand out that I used and it goes well along with the power point). Covers hypothesis, variables, the purpose of each step and conclusions. If you are only carrying out the disappearing cross practical then diagrams of the other possibilities are used in the plenary.

Science Harry Potter Potions Carousel Lesson

(1)
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.

Aromatic Chemistry (Benzene) (AQA New Spec 3.3.10)

(0)
Put together for AQA A Level Chemistry (new specification). Covers how the structure of benzene is determines and the reactions that occurs on the benzene ring (with mechanisms) including Friedel-Crafts acylation. Tasks throughout to test and encourage thought. A differentiated task to assess listening and understanding and a differentiated plenary.
The Development of the Periodic Table

The Development of the Periodic Table

(0)
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.

Organic Chemistry Unit Summary / Knowledge Organiser (AQA)

(1)
A 2 page summary of the AQA (new specification) Organic Chemistry unit of work. Covers both trilogy and separate Chemistry content. Can be used for revision at the end of the topic, or as an introduction to a new unit of work. - Crude Oil and Hydrocarbons - Fractional Distillation - Alkanes - Alkenes - Cracking - Testing for Alkenes - Reactions of Alkenes - Addition Polymerisation - Condensation Polymerisation - Naturally Occurring Polymers

Lesson built around the summer 2018 exam asking students to write a method to find the density of an irregular object. This lesson was designed for foundation tier students. Discusses the exam question, command word and what this means and key words. Covers the knowledge that students need about density to be able to understand the topic and answer questions. There is practice for students at each stage. Finally students answer the question, look at success criteria and mark using model answer.
