A powerpoint lesson on relative motion for KS3 Physics Learning Objectives: To describe what relative motion is To plot a distance time graph and use it to calculate the relative speeds of objects To calculate the relative motion of various objects Includes Starter Concept animations Explanations with examples Calculations of delta-v with graphs Supporting questions with answers Differentiated Plenary
Lesson Planning Sheet

Lesson Planning Sheet

Comes attached with QCA Science level descriptions. I found this very helpful when SLG insisted on levelled objectives and evidence of lesson structure, as I could quickly add a scheme of work and adjust it to suit my needs. It gradually swelled as the year went past. Now I only have to tinker my lessons! Hope it helps. Any suggestions, please leave a comment. I can take it *sob.

OCR Chemistry A - AS Acids and Bases

(0)
Used for a successful interview lesson (1hr). Learning Objectives: Know names and formulae of common acids and alkalis Explain qualitatively what weak and strong acids are Predict the outcomes of neutralisation reactions, including writing balanced symbol equations Includes: differentiation extension activities exam questions answers for everything (which is always nice)
KS3 Being a Scientist
martinblake1

KS3 Being a Scientist

(0)
A simple lesson which helps students think about science in the past, present and the future. It helps them determine which of the three "umbrella" disciplines (Bio, Chem, Phys) and allows them the choice of activities. I used this as an end of term filler lesson and it worked well with year 7 & 8 (especially the fact or fiction activity) To note: The past is everything they currently study, the present is the fact or fiction activity at the end. The future is a posed question in the plenary, as we don't know what the future of scientific discovery is, though it may prompt some nice discussion.

Chemistry Lesson Starters - DO SCIENCE NOW (11-14)

(1)
45 CHEMISTRY lesson openers for your powerpoint needs! A collection of DO NOW activities for chemistry lessons (age range 11 to 14, though it can work for some GCSE lessons too), all on one powerpoint! A DO NOW is any activity that you have at the very beginning of class that helps you set the tone for that day. The powerpoint is fully linked to a menu and animated where appropriate. It's very much a download-and-use resource. There is a rationale slide and how to use/things to avoid slide as well. There are 45 different activities that can be used as starters (or plenaries if you like) covering chemistry topics below: States of matter Changes of State Dalton and the Atom Atoms, Elements, & Compounds Chemical Symbols Conservation of Mass Pure Substances Mixtures Diffusion Filtration Evaporation Distillation Chromatography Identifying Pure Substances chemical Reactions Chemical Equations Combustion Thermal Decomposition Oxidation Displacement Energy changes Exothermics Endothermics Physical Properties Chemical Properties Mendeleev Periods & Groups Metals & Non-metals The pH of Metals & Oxides Reactivity Series Carbon Extraction Ceramics Polymers Composites Earth Composition Earth Structure Igneous Rock Sedimentary Rock Metamorphic Rock Rock Cycle Recycling The Carbon Cycle Atmospheric Composition CO2 Climate Change Generic Choice Starter

(0)
A lesson on ethics of organ transplantation. Objectives: 1. Understanding why organs are donated for transplant. 2. Considering the limitations of organ donation a) Prior health issues including alcoholism and obesity b) Supply of organs 3. Discussing and deciding whether a patient should receive a transplant. Includes: Lesson Plan Supporting powerpoint Activity where students judge patients for priority transplant based on information in the case. Includes extension task at back of pack.

Acceleration and velocity time graphs GCSE Physics AQA

(0)
A nicely laid out and clear lesson on the acceleration equation and v/t graphs with worksheet support, practice calculations and answers for all questions on the powerpoint, with the lesson plan attached. Objectives: Foundation Be able to calculate acceleration when given the formula Be able to draw and interpret velocity time graphs Higher Calculate the acceleration of an object from the gradient of a velocity-time graph Calculate the distance an object travelled from a velocity-time graph What you get for your buck: A powerpoint with supporting worksheets: A starter question Explanation of acceleration as a vector and the equation, as well as rearrangement options Practice Calculations with answers (on worksheet and ppt) Challenge question for differentiation (on worksheet and ppt) How to interpret v/t graphs with examples of acceleration by gradient and distance Interpret v/t graph worksheet (answers on ppt) Plenary problem worksheet (answers on ppt) Take care and don't forget to review :)
Terminal Velocity GCSE Physics

Terminal Velocity GCSE Physics

(0)
A GCSE Physics lesson on terminal velocity with differentiated worksheets and practical activity (will need equipment) based on a class of 24 pupils in 4 groups. It's busy, mucky, and, like all good physics lessons, they've got to work stuff out. MUST: Identify forces on a falling object in a fluid SHOULD: Use force diagrams to show how force changes during a fall/describe changes COULD: Explain terminal velocity/in terms of resultant force/Interpret v/t graphs Powerpoint is to provide structure to the lesson and includes the plenary. I recommend embedding the online stopwatch. Starter – individual (Grade C) entry question based on previous lessons Task 1: Experiment – groups, roles in groups, (calculations v=d/t + mean) B- A grade Task 2: Group 4 – Aristotle worksheet (B grade) – less wordy task Group 3 – Galileo worksheet (B to A grade) – task includes acceleration calculations Group 2 & 1 – Newton worksheet (A grade) – focuses on graphs only Plenary  Exam question – individual, self-assess.

Speed and Velocity GCSE Physics

(0)
A lesson on speed and velocity for AQA EDEXCEL OCR specifications GCSE Physics. Lots of examples in the powerpoint and a worksheet for challenge, extra practice, or simply homework. I've also included an investigation planning sheet for testing height of ramp on toy cars. Objectives 1. To know the correct units to apply 2. To be able to calculate and rearrange s=d/t 3. To explain the difference between speed and velocity What you get for your buck: A supporting powerpoint A nice picture of a Saleen S7 twin turbo (lovely. Yellow, but lovely) A short history on what we consider fast (in ppt) Oodles of calculation examples and practice (in ppt) A nice interactive slide with moving blocks (you'll need a stopwatch) (in ppt) More calculations (in ppt) An explanation of speed versus velocity More calculations (in ppt) A scaled worksheet with the answers separate for homework, practice etc. You could differentiate by giving the students: A speed investigation proforma (they plan the test given the question - independent learning task) That should keep them busy for an hour ;) Have fun

Pathological Diseases - Case Notes Unit 43

(0)
A collection of case notes on pathological diseases designed for BTEC Level 3 Unit 43 Diseases. Used correctly, they can provide a starting point to show students how to write informative case notes without stealing large tracts of info from wiki, as well as provide a nice resource for struggling students to start from. They could also be used as short reading material for studying disease at any secondary level. Each case note contains basic symptoms, etiology, epidemiology, treatment options.
