"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not 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.

Young's Modulus

(1)
A full lesson covering the Young’s Modulus, how to use a micrometer screw-gauge and the required practical 4 for AQA. There are also a few questions including a past paper QWC question
Physics Angels

Physics Angels

(0)
Make your own physics decorations for your tree or classroom! A fun Christmas activity (although could be used at other times of the year), the “angels” of physics come with an equation they are closely associated with, students can then get creative by adding their own wings. I will also be setting my students the task of writing a biography about their “angel” over the Christmas break.

Santa's Mechanics Mix-Up

(0)
A fun Christmas revision lesson. Santa’s elves have mixed up all the presents! Each present has an a-level physics mechanics maths based question on it. Some questions are easy, some questions are difficult. Can you students match the present to the right house in time for Christmas Eve? There are 24 questions complete with a teacher’s guide containing all answers. Students could quite easily spend over an hour solving these puzzles, whilst practicing all the equations they have learnt for year 12 mechanics. Make the last lesson of term a useful but also fun lesson for your students!

Christmas Science Skills

(0)
A fun Christmas lesson covering the basics of means and ranges. The lesson has an introduction where the students help an elf monitor the reindeer training program before completing their own experiment to put into practice the skills they have just learned. A perfect way to have a fun Christmas lesson whilst ensuring your students still gain curriculum knowledge in the lesson. for the lesson you will need: Balloons, String, straws. stopwatches, clamp stands (or something else to tie the string to)

Particle Physics and Quantum Phenomena Vocabulary Paperchain (Christmas Activity)

(0)
A fun twist on the traditional loop game! With 56 key words based on Particle Physics and Quantum Phenomena, print these off double sided on coloured paper and have your A-level students read the definition, the students then find the matching word, on the back of the matching word is another definition, the students find the next word and link them together in a traditional paper chain, with the word displaying on the outside. A fun way for students to check their understanding of keywords from A-level physics whilst also making decorations to give your lab a festive feel for Christmas! Length of activity: approximately 30-40 minutes if students are working in pairs and fun christmas music is playing in the background.
Mechanics Easter Egg Hunt

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!
