12 Fully Animated PowerPoints
Each PowerPoint is highly animated. It meets the National Curriculum requirement that pupils are able to draw circuit diagrams and construct actual circuits from them. The sequence of the lesson is draw circuit, design table, construct circuit, measure/observe, conclude.
The lesson will suit all abilities but provides extension material for the more able in the form of questions requiring a deeper analysis and explanation of findings.
Support for those pupils failing to draw a circuit diagram or table is always given on the next slide.
The PowerPoint ends with a five question, fully animated class quiz with sound, which can be used as a plenary or exit ticket activity.
Suggested Teaching Order
Current, Voltage and Resistance
Conductors and Insulators
Circuits and Symbols
Lamps in Series and Parallel
Batteries and Current
Batteries and Voltage
The PowerPoint will fit in with whatever circuit building kits you have. I use groups of 3-4 pupils.
The lesson Current, Voltage and Resistance can be downloaded free as a sample. It uses the recommendation in the AQA KS3 syllabus for science that a water analogy is used to explain electricity. There is also a preview of one of the other lessons at the end of this free download. If you do not buy any of the others please enjoy these with your pupils with my good wishes.
