Resources here for IBDP and A-Level Chemistry, as well as Edexcel IGCSE and AQA GCSE Chemistry. I have a huge range of resources for 11-14 so ask if you need something specific. After teaching for 13 years in the UK and in international schools I have built up quite a selection of teaching resources. You can also visit my site www.toptenteacher.co.uk.

IGCSE, Section 1, States of Matter, Kinetic Theory, Complete lesson.

(0)
Second lesson from section 1, topic a. PowerPoint includes starter, theory, practical and plenary. Expects students to be able to describe the properties of solids liquids and gases and conduct experiment to collect data and draw a graph to show a cooling curve. Objectives: Can you recall interconversions between solids, liquids and gases? (C) Can you make accurate observations and explain these observations using kinetic theory? (B) Can you draw graphical data from practical work and further evaluate the idea of kinetic theory? (A/A*)

Electron Arrangement, Fundamental Chemistry Lesson 2 (AQA 1.1.2) Complete lesson.

(0)
The second lesson in 'The Fundamental Ideas in Chemistry' topic looking at how electrons are arranged in shells. Lesson objectives: -Understand that elements in the same group in the periodic table have the same number of electrons in their highest energy level (outer electrons) and this gives them similar chemical properties. -Know that elements in Group 0 of the periodic table are called the noble gases. They are unreactive because their atoms have stable arrangements of electrons. Resources included: x1 Powerpoint starter on identification of element from atomic number. x1 PowerPoint with lesson objectives from AQA with main content of lesson and plenary. x 4 worksheets, all based on understanding electron arrangement, chose which one depending on your students. x2 teaching aid/animation good to use with interactive whiteboard or mouse (.swf files need Adobe Flash Player)

Cement and Concrete, Lesson 4 of Limestone and Building Materials, (AQA 1.2) Complete lesson

(0)
The 'Limestone and Building Materials' topic looks at uses of limestone and reactions of the carbonates. Lesson objectives: To understand the differences between cement, concrete and mortar. To test the strength of concrete Resources included: 1.Starter on ppt but if required this could be an alternative- Revision of limestone cycle. 2-5. Practical worksheets that can be given to students of different abilities, investigate how to make concrete and how the strength can change depending on the ratio of sand, cement and aggregate. Could be extended to include reinforced concrete. 6. Alternative to practical also involves finding out how glass is made. 7. Video, about 1min 30sec on how concrete strength is tested in a lab. Has cool backing music! 8. Possible homework- double sided worksheet, recaps previous work. 9. PowerPoint linking the main parts of the lesson together, has starter and plenary.

Fundamental Ideas in Chemistry, Support Pack (AQA 1.1.1 to 1.1.3)

(0)
Extra worksheets if students are struggling to access knowledge of Fundamental Ideas in Chemistry. 1. History of the Atom- Research task where students are expected find out about different scientists and how they used to understand what the atom looked like. 2. Research an element and find out the many different ways you can draw it. 3. Use blank periodic table and fill it in with as much information as you can find out. 4. Slightly more challenging worksheet, will involve some reading and processing information to answer questions on atomic structure. 5. Teacher lead practical on the alkali metals and water, students recording observations. 6. Filling in a table with numbers of protons, neutrons, electrons, mass number and proton number.
Uses of Limestone, Limestone and Building Materials, Lesson 1 (AQA 1.2.1) Complete lesson.
millergramillergra

Uses of Limestone, Limestone and Building Materials, Lesson 1 (AQA 1.2.1) Complete lesson.

(0)
The 4th lesson in the 'Limestone and Building Materials' topic looking at uses of limestone and reactions of the carbonates. Lesson objectives: Most students should be able to: Recognise that limestone is a building material and state that it can also be used to make glass, cement and concrete. Complete a word equation for the thermal decomposition of limestone. Write the formula of calcium carbonate. Some students should also be able to: Explain the process of thermal decomposition of limestone. Resources included: 1. Questions on uses of limestone. 2. More questions on uses of limestone and quarrying limestone, could be used as homework. 3. PowerPoint with starter to recap understanding of elements mixtures and compounds, students produce notes on key reactions and uses of limestone though something more enjoyable than copying, some pair work and a plenary to check understanding.

Science Tasks for IBDP Theory of Knowledge

(0)
Involves some lab work and investigations to answer the following TOK related questions: How is Knowledge Created in Science? To what extent is it important for scientists “see” things the same way? To what extent do scientists follow a set problem solving process or method for creating knowledge? What is the relationship between accuracy and precision in scientific measurement?
