Harry Potter Flame Test Mystery

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.

Chemistry Paper 2 Revision (AQA 9-1 New Specification)

(0)
A revision power point designed to be used for the final lesson before the paper 2 exam. Briefly covers the main points of collision theory and rates of reaction, fractional distillation, alkanes, alkenes, chromatography, gas tests, the Earth’s atmosphere, pollutants, drinking water and life cycle assessments. I have put this together with foundation students in mind but could easily be added to to cover the higher tier parts of the specification. I intent to print the slides out so that the students can annotate around them as I talk.

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
A Level (Y11) Chemistry Taster Session

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.
Chemistry Paper 1 Revision (AQA New Specification 1-9)

Chemistry Paper 1 Revision (AQA New Specification 1-9)

(0)
A revision power point I have put together to use with foundation paper Y11 students for their final lesson before the paper 1 exam. I have tried to cover something from each topic (atomic structure, bonding, acids and alkalis, electrolysis, extracting metals and exo and endothermic reactions). This is designed to be basic to refresh memories and pick up 1 mark answers. Looks at making salts and energy changes required practicals as well a refresher on variables and mean.
Required Practical - Rates of Reaction (AQA) - Changing Concentration

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

(0)
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.
Rate and Extent of Chemical Change Summary / Knowledge Organiser (AQA)
lottie106

Rate and Extent of Chemical Change Summary / Knowledge Organiser (AQA)

(1)
A one page summary of the Rate and Extent of Chemical Change unit of the AQA new specification for Chemistry. This can be used for both Trilogy and separate Chemistry specifications. A good revision document for the end of the unit or could be used as an introduction. - Collision Theory - Factors affecting rate of reaction - Calculating rates of reaction - Reversible reactions - Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's principle - Required practical
Calculating Rates of Reaction (AQA)
lottie106

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).
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.
Science Harry Potter Potions Carousel Lesson

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.

AQA Trilogy Chemistry Required Practical One Page Summary / Knowledge Organiser - Revision

(0)
I put this resource together to help my Y11’s to revise for the required practicals. It gives a basic outline of the method for each of the 6 Chemistry practicals in the new 9-1 Trilogy specification, along with the variables (where necessary), diagrams of equipment, some hints and tips and safety pointers that may be useful for the exams. I have also included links to other topics in the specification - there is no information on these but it gives students an indication of where these practicals may be linked to other topics. I have found this really useful to use alongside exam questions.
