A Level (Y11) Chemistry Taster Session

(0)
This is the session that I have put together for my Y11 taster session. It focusses on transition metals and why their complexes have different colours. The practicals that I have used a freely available from RSC, however I have compiled them into a single worksheet that includes the method and space to record observations. The blue bottle starter is again freely available but I have included here for those who need it. The section on calculating oxidation state could be cut out for a shorter session, then focussing on the practical work.

Harry Potter Flame Test Mystery

(1)
This is a lesson using flame tests that I put together for Harry Potter day. Students need to work out who has poisoned Dumbledore. I used this with Y10 who had not done flame tests before.

Covalent Bonding Low Ability / SEN

(0)
Introduction to covalent bonding or revision lesson. This covers the very basics of covalent bonding, using molymods to allow the students to visualise the bonds and then getting them to draw the bonding. Designed for bottom set Y10 who loved it.

Choosing Elements for a Purpose (Y8)

(0)
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.
Ionic Bonding Low Ability
lottie106lottie106

Ionic Bonding Low Ability

(1)
Introduction or revision of ionic bonding designed for a LA class. For the practical simply ask the students to see if any compounds you have available are soluble in water, conduct as solids and conduct when dissolved. Could also link to revision of electrolysis.

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.
Refraction

Refraction

(0)
Introduction to refraction. Includes often used practical task. I used a match up plenary taken from Kerboodle, so not included here.
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.
Diffusion (LA or SEN)
lottie106lottie106

Diffusion (LA or SEN)

(0)
Designed for a low ability set with lots of SEN. Practical, sentence starters for discussion and literacy tasks. Links to diffusion is cells and why this is important.
Science Command Words Guide

Science Command Words Guide

(0)
A guide for the common command words in Science. For each command word there is success criteria, key words/phrases to use and a worked example highlighting where the success criteria are used.
Required Practical - Rates of Reaction (AQA) - Changing Concentration
lottie106lottie106

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.
Calculating Rates of Reaction (AQA)
lottie106lottie106

Calculating Rates of Reaction (AQA)

(0)
Whole lesson covering how to calculate rates of reaction for the new AQA specification. Includes a recap of calculating mean and anomalous results. Calculating mean using numbers and graphs. Levelled task for students to pick tasks that suit their confidence level and an exam question included (this should be changed to suit the group).
Quantitative Chemistry Summary / Knowledge Organiser (AQA)
lottie106lottie106

Quantitative Chemistry Summary / Knowledge Organiser (AQA)

(1)
This contains a summary of all the information needed for the AQA Quantitative Chemistry unit for the new specification. It can be used for both Trilogy and separate Chemistry specifications. Information is condensed into two pages and includes the equations needed and worked examples. Can be used for revision at the end of the topic or as an introduction. - RAM - RFM - % composition - Conservation of mass - Moles - Concentration of solutions - Yield - Atom economy - Titration calcultions
Science Harry Potter Potions Carousel Lesson
lottie106lottie106

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.
