Naming compounds, counting atoms and elements

(0)
This activity was designed to teach and then thoroughly assess students understanding to identify elements in compounds, count the number of different elements and atoms and name the compounds. There are 3 powerpoints to use along with information cards and a detailed worksheet activity. This is excellent for KS3 and as revision in KS4.

Rock Cycle Quiz with 'The Flintstones'

(12)
I designed this quiz to engage lower ability pupils. It is used to assess their progress in a fun way at the end of the Rocks topic. Pupils are given a sheet to note down their answers and this can be stuck into their exercise books afterwards. When you are ready to mark, the quiz can become interactive. In Section A, pupils double click on the correct answer and will hear a response identifying whether the answer is correct or incorrect. In Section B, the answer appears on screen. I have used the 'Flintstones' font. You can download it easily using google to search for it. Have fun!

I found this flash animation free on the internet and it was one of the best finds I've ever had. You can use it in any lesson when giving pupils 30s thinking time during quizzes. I hope you get as much enjoyment as I have with my classes.
