"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but simpler"-Albert Einstein. These wise words from the worl'd greatest physicist has long inspired my lesson plans, ensuring that concepts are made as simple as possible without dumbing down. All paid for lessons follow the same design, all lessons are clearly differentiated, with plenty of peer assessment and self assessment to reduce teacher workload and are fun and engaging for student and teacher alike.

Mechanics Easter Egg Hunt

(0)
A fun revision lesson covering all of the equations students need to know for the Mechanics topic for AQA year 12 physics. Each easter egg has a question and an answer to a previous question on it. Students work in teams to solve the question to help them find the next egg. With over 35 questions, some easy some difficult it should take most A-level classes at least 1 hour to complete this. For a bit of extra fun, try turning it into a competition, where teams get a mini egg for each correctly solved question at the end of the lesson!
