Electric Charge KS3 Physics

Electric Charge KS3 Physics

A lesson for KS3 students or low level GCSE, introduces the concept of atoms, charge, how charges can be transferred, and some of the risks associated with charged materials. Lesson comes fully planned (just follow the ppt), and includes an activity with a plasma ball (if you've got one; if not, just leave it out!). There's a link to a youtube video called electric graffiti in the ppt as well (it's 14 min long but worth it, the students always like watching it). NB: I deliberately avoided using the Van der Graaf generator, as I wanted to save it for GCSE. Learning Objectives: To recall structure of atom To describe how charges can be transferred To describe and explain the risks and precaution of using charge

CP6 Radiation Summary Lesson

CP6 Radiation Summary Lesson

A lesson with lots of board tasks to prepare students for either an end of unit test or revision for the final exams. Each set of tasks attempts to tackle a small number of the Edexcel 9-1 specification statements for radioactivity. Useful to spot gaps, and also to fill them in. I found the lesson went extremely fast. All the tasks are timed appropriately with a disappearing clock.

2015 to 2016 GCSE AQA Additional Science Revision Calendar

2015 to 2016 GCSE AQA Additional Science Revision Calendar

What you get for your money: A revision calendar from 1st Sept to July 2015 AQA Science A Core & Additional content statements in a numbered list for each unit. As the title suggests, a simple excel revision calendar for year 11 2015 to 2016 cohort. It includes all the AQA content statements and works on the basis that students study one statement from each discipline a night. It provides structure for students who simply don't know where to start, tells them what to revise and when. Useful from the beginning of the year, but if you're coming to it later, adjust the dates/statements to match the time left. AQA exam dates and holidays are marked on, and obviously can be changed to suit timeframe needs. ALSO, if the calendar isn't for you but you are looking for a complete microsoft friendly list of AQA specification content statements for core and additional science, then this is for you; just copy and paste. Best printed on A3 but will fit on A4 double sided, if you don't object to small font.
