STEM week project-build the international space station

(0)
Before purchasing please ensure this link still works as resources are required from here: The project is based around life on the international space station would suit years 6-8. The first lesson uses resources in the pack to discover the different partners working on board the ISS. Lesson two uses the nets off the resource link to build a scale model of the ISS. i have made shots of what each part should look like that could be given to groups to help them visualise what they are making. (this will save you 3 hours cutting it out and assembling first). Lesson three is a basic ppt that guides you through the practical ,space nappies. lesson 4- basic ppt to use along side making foot pump rockets There are also differentiated booklets that go along side the project that guide the pupils through each activity. I have ran this twice in schools on science week (lower KS3) and they have enjoyed and discovered a lot from this, developing and enhancing the STEM skills they need,

Rates of reaction introduction

A 30 minute lesson I used in an interview. you need quite a good pace to get through it in 30 minutes-I admit I did the plenary just as groups so could be spread over a longer time easily. I used a sheet that was already on TES which i got from here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/rates-of-reaction-6070772 TEEP lesson plan included. The lesson is a quick introduction to rates with an experts task included and exam question plenary. The file labelled concentration is the information sheets. pupils start in groups of 4, then number off 1-4 and become experts on one of the areas.

AQA C2 revision-part of the unit

(0)
This resource is part of the outgoing AQA CHEMISTRY specification. It forms a revision day I am going to do with my year 11s. It starts from quantatative methods onwards although it has a revision list for the enture topic. each section comprises of some information slides followed by guided exam questions. There is a teachers version for your presentation and a pupils version to print (or print selected slides from). I have used others resources from TES in places but this forms a handy revision session. Please note: I have not covered the bonding/structures section as I have already covered this with my class so it did not form part of my planning. Also Electrolysis is not in detail as my class have covered it so much during C1 revision. low price due to this and part of outgoing specification

The pupils have been abandoned on a desert island. They are all well but their phones are all dead-too many selfies on instagram! they must work in teams to come up with a solution to change thier mobile phone using resources off the island-I let them use parts they found on the plane too. There is a proforma to fill in for the research-some of mine were really inventive! *I have not included the research as mine used pages off bitesize but could easily be done on computer if available. One they have fedback they vote on the best. To review all of the information their are exam questions taken from the new AQA spec included. After that they feedback and
