This is a lesson that was used for a year 7 group where they mainly looked at gel cubes which were dyed with phenolphthalein and acid was dropped on different sized cubes to see rate of diffusion. I focused on the Skills side of the lesson and it was rated outstanding . I hope you find it useful.
These are KS3 updated schemes of work which were given in booklet form to teachers to plan lesson. The worksheets that are referred to are from the exploring science folders.
These are not intended be full schemes of work. They present core ideas that all teachers must do and the teachers can still add their own individuality into the lesson.
This is a resource made for year 6 coming into year 7. The aim of this is to do this over the 6 weeks holiday and give it to their science teacher on their first week back. It will enable the teacher to work out their science and literacy skills and for them to start exploring some of the science topics studied at secondary school. It is aimed to be fun and research based. Enjoy
A scheme of work to introduce science to 4th grade students. I have created a booklet that goes with this which is mainly taken from exploring science unit which has been included. The 11 powerpoints with these have also been added along with the scheme of work and booklet.
This lesson achieved an outstanding grade during observation and the students thoroughly enjoyed learning about bath bombs and carbonates and acid. It is aimed at a lower group but can easily be tweaked for middle or higher groups. The worksheets are differentiated and can be found within the powerpoint. There is also a designing a bath bomb sheet within the powerpoint too. I hope your students enjoy this as much as mine did.
A fun lesson used on a core curriculum evening to give a sample lesson to parents. This involves the parents and students working together to investigate the best techniques used to cool down tea. This lesson was done in 20 minute slots to 3 separate groups but can be stretched out to a full lesson. It includes a fun voice over activity at the end where students need to use their imagination and science skills to try and make a voice over for a man cooling tea in an unusual way. Enjoy
