Only Connect Quiz

Only Connect Quiz

This is a quiz based on the BBC Four programme Only Connect. It contains some example questions but is more of a template - duplicate the slides and change the text boxes to add extra questions. Full instructions are included on the first slide. One version has videos from the show where the presenter, Victoria Coren, explains the rules for each round. If you have problems with this then the other version just has question slides. Hope you find this useful for plenaries and tutor time quizzes.

Safety and Science Task Cards

Safety and Science Task Cards

It is essential to cover safety at the start of the school year with any group that will be working in the science lab. I don’t know about you, but even I get bored of the standard safety talk (so how do you think the kids feel?)! Mix things up a little with these 16 task cards. Each describes a different situation and the students must decide what they would do. There are no answers included as these will depend on your own classroom rules and school policies. The students might surprise you and think of something you hadn’t thought of! These would be ideal for group discussion, for students to work through individually, or to set as homework. There are two versions of these task cards - one with full-page cards and one with four cards on a page. You can easily fit eight cards on a page by adjusting the print settings to save paper - the text is still large and clear. I hope you find this useful!

Electric circuit components toolkit

Electric circuit components toolkit

This toolkit contains all of the standard circuit symbols you would expect to find. I’ve formatted them in a way that makes it easy build circuit diagrams just by copying and pasting the components. The file is a PowerPoint document - fully editable and easy to paste into the other programs. I’ve included a couple of example worksheets made using the toolkit (answers included) to show you what’s possible. You may use the component symbols in your own projects. All I ask is that you credit me and include a link back to this page on TES.
