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 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.
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
This is appropriate for students aged 11-14 for their science curriculum. It blends three years work into 2 and a bit years. It gives good ideas for your lessons and still gives teachers the ability to teach freely with their own ideas and to stay focused on core ideas
