This quick and fun starter activity will help students gain familiarity with the layout and meaning of the symbols in the periodic table.
Use as an engagement activity in lessons from the AQA GCSE Chemistry 4.1.2/ Periodic table.
Only do 2 films at a time, save more for next lesson.
Most school diaries have a periodic table, and students must use if to find out the title of the film. Otherwise give student a copy of the periodic table.
This resources also gives you an opportunity to talk a briefly about the F block elements, mostly found in the late 20th century, and the most infamous or important being Uranium and Plutonium.

3 lessons tied together by starters that assess progress and introduce key vocabulary. Practical work and sing posts for AO1 and AO2 . Engaging pictures that work with mixed ability groups. Just add 2 min of teacher talk per slide, to put your style into the lesson, and let students record, explore, discuss and self evaluate . Minimum photocopying and maximum impact.
PDF/ Team work, literacy, Engineering, Science and Technology. Make the rocket, change the design, test, measure, talk, think and have fun. Use as part of the Forces unit at KS4 ( iGCSE, AQA and OCR) to investigate resultant forces, air resistance and momentum. For KS5 use to investigate projectile motion and contextualize the equations of motion. Use the activity to nurture team roles: leadership and dependability. Promote talk to learn, engage boys and introduce girls to STEM careers.
PPP Windows detailed introduction to A2 Electric fields. AO1's are signposted. Key points often misunderstood by students are clearly highlighted. Example problems with step by step solutions. Very useful for Multiple choice training. Ideal for AQA PH4 old and New Electric fields specifications. Load it up on your VLE to promote independent learning.
An engaging resource for kinaesthetic and visual learners, with extension work and HT additions. Problems to test progress with answers for self-assessment. Choose your music, stop , start, freeze, to allow you to highlight a key point or differentiate through questioning. The resource is very helpful to non-specialist Science teachers.
7 glossaries to match 4.1.1,4.1.2,4.1.3,4.2.1,4.2.2,4.2.3 and 4.2.4 topics in the New GCSE Chemistry SOW for AQA.
Print and cut them, and hand them to students at the start of each section to support them with the literacy of these topics. Key terms for spelling, definition and example sentences using the key term.
Support Literacy in Science and whole school literacy. A short plenary or summary lesson starter based on traffic lights is included.
his worksheet is rigorous in its use of scientific terms and conventions, and it is a step by step description of Newton's second Law of motion to derive the four most useful equations of motion. The students is shown how their knowledge and understanding improves and expands from Physics Lower high school 'C' grade to Physics 01 or Maths Mechanics 01 'A' grade, through the use of exam style questions. The Mark scheme gives a step by step commentary on the methods and final answer conventions, to help the student understand the pitfall in problem solving e.g carelessness with units and decimal place presentation. The work could be set as a 2 hour independent study to support learning of ' Motion in a straight line with constant acceleration' and or Maths Mechanics 1 Dynamics. This worksheet will allow the teacher to see differentiation in the class and understand student's needs, thus targeting feedback and assistance efficiently.
Change the way you teach and improve the impact of your experience and knowledge on your student's progress for $4.
4 levels of ' Forces' engagement or plenary activities focused on the use of key terms and the construction of sentences that accurately describe, explain, compare and suggest. Teacher's notes with answers, assessment and feedback points. Ideal for non-specialist teaching GCSE Physics. Recycle activities a few times with different assessment emphasis.
KS3 level 5 covers practical skills and a GCSE topic; Hooke's law in the context of sport and injuries in tennis. This is part of a set of lessons to engage year 7 to 13 students (KS3, KS4 and KS5) with STEM subjects ( forces, data analysis and materials' technology) in the context of sport, and particularly Tennis as June-July is the season of many great tournaments. Why re-invent the wheel? Invest and enjoy for a many teaching groups and a few years to come.
This (2 lesson) required practical has an assessment grid, spaces for student reflection after each section, and a detailed list of command phrases to help all students attain their predicted level. The first part helps developing students attainment with a tick list for equipment. The method section is written at a SMOG level 5/6( KS4 consolidated literacy students cope well with SMOG level 12 -15text). Data analysis techniques are supported with formulae. Print in A5 or A4 white or pale Yellow ( for vision impaired or dyslexia needs) and glue to a dedicated Required practical exercise book. Make assessment efficient by signing an attainment box and plan lesson time for collective reflection of common errors or misconceptions. The resource fully supports Teacher Assistant interventions.
The resource is written with Blooms taxonomy progression terms for differentiation. Students can work and make progress on each section of the work sheet. There is a very simple practical for students to experience the conditions for equilibrium, in contrast, the last set of questions challenges students to consider the conditions of equilibrium as an abstract numerical concept. Let the students work at their pace while you walk, observe, feedback and challenge.High impact.
2017-19 AQA GCSE Physics. Use these tables for students to keep a record of their progress in the Electricity units. The students can fill in the right-hand side column with a traffic light colour scheme to show their level of confidence in a sub-unit. For the teacher, this data can help formulate individual feedback or to plan revision interventions. Bloom's taxonomy is systematically used to help students develop the skills for answering exams style questions and competently communicate their subject knowledge.
2017-19 AQA GCSE Forces and Motion. Students use these tables to track their our progress in the skills and concepts of each sub-unit. Students use the traffic lights colour scheme or emojis of their choice to show and reflect on their progress. The teacher can give feedback or plan interventions based on the visual information in these trackers. Over the course of 2 years, students build up evidence of progress and a personal subject revision list.
2017-19 GCSE AQA Waves 4.3. Students use these tables to track their progress. Students colour in the right-hand columns with the traffic lights scheme or an emoji of their choice to convey their confidence in each sub-unit of the Waves specification. Teachers can use the data to target feedback or intervention lessons. Bloom's taxonomy is used in each learning objective to familiarise students with level 5 to 8 skills for answering exam questions, communicating the key ideas of Waves and transferring skills to Chemistry and Environmental science. This document is a sound revision list for the AQA trilogy and Physics course.
2017-19 AQA GCSE Energy 4.1. Give students a table at the start of each of the 4.1 sub-units for them to track their progress in each learning outcome. 'Evaluate' skills can be achieved by open ended research HW. Students can colour in the right-hand side columns with the traffic lights or RAG scheme, or choose their own emoji to show their progress and confidence level, and teachers can use the information to targte formative feedback or plan revision interventions.
2017-19 AQA 4.8 GCSE Physics. Use these tables for students to keep a record of their progress in the Electricity units. The students can fill in the right-hand side column with a traffic light colour scheme to show their level of confidence in a sub-unit. For the teacher, this data can help formulate individual feedback or to plan revision interventions. Bloom's taxonomy is systematically used to help students develop the skills for answering exams style questions and competently communicate their subject knowledge.
