Types of Solar Eclipses

(1)
Lesson explaining what is a Solar Eclipse and the difference between a total, partial and annular solar eclipse. Students should use their phones to simulate the different types of solar eclipses (see cover image) and then be able to explain the conditions for the three types of solar eclipses to occur. Also includes research worksheet.

Cheek cell & onion cell - Images

(3)
Images from the classic practical of looking at cheek cells and onion cells through a microscope. I use this after doing the practical (in case students can't get theirs to work) as a way of identifying key features of the cell. Aimed at KS3

Transformer experiments - For non-specialist physics teachers

(0)
Attached is everything you will need to teach a lesson (with a class practical or demonstration) on transformers. Using a multimeter that can measure AC voltage (available at places like Maplins), and a set of transformer coils (available from Phillip Harris) students measure the voltage across the primary and secondary coil of a transformer. Included are student instructions, guided questions, and teacher set up instructions. PLEASE MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A MULTIMETER THAT CAN MEASURE AC VOLTAGE BEFORE PURCHASING! See cover image for all equipment you will need!

Identifying Adaptations - Research project, with writing frame

(0)
Research activity for Year 7 students. Students research about the adaptations of the plants and animals of the Namib Desert. The activity requires students to research, and then present their findings in a poster. Included is a writing frame to help students structure their research. Students can use a QR scanner on their phone (QR apps are free to download for Android and iPhone), and it will take them to pages with information. Included is the original PowerPoint that you can adapt, some images of the animals and plants in the task, as well as a pdf of the powerpoint if you want to share it directly with your students, so they can read it on their computers. The pdf also has clickable links.

Resistivity/Resistance investigation - Length vs. Resistance of pencil graphite

(0)
I made a PowerPoint a few years back on how to make a resistor with pencils. Here are (differentiated) instructions explaining to students how to carry out the investigation. Included is the original publisher file if you want to edit it. If you don't have publisher a PDF is also included! To do this experiment you will need a digital multimeter that can measure resistance.
