I've used this powerpoint for both P1a GCSE Physics and BTEC L2 Applied Science classes.
The powerpoint discusses the different types of energy, then leads into energy transformations and the law of conservation of energy.
Student activity to model the random nature of radioactive decay. Each group (2 to 3 students) will need a pack of skittles or m&ms.
Document includes student instructions, table template and graph template for students to record their data.
Powerpoint slides explaining what a potential divider is, and explaining step by step how we derrive the equations for a potential divider. With an investigation suggestion for potential dividers.
Worksheet included with 4 KS5 questions on potential dividers, and mark scheme with worked solutions.
A worksheet aimed to teach students how to convert from Kelvin to Celsius and vice versa. Students have to calculate the surface temperature of planets in the Solar System, and then plot a graph of distance from the Sun v temperature. Then use the graph to answer questions.
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.
Some of my most popular displays bundled together.
Exam command terms
Key words in science
History of American spaceflight
Newton's Law of Gravitation
The Solar System
Three high quality images (printable to at least A3 size) to display the equations and uses of Newton's Law of Gravitation. A PowerPoint of the images along with worked examples. The worked examples are included as a stand alone worksheet as well. (Answers to worksheet are on the PowerPoint).
This is approximately a 2 hour research project for the IKS Area of Knowledge for the TOK course for the IB Diploma.
Students should work in groups to complete the activities in the first two activity sheets, using the mind map template to help structure their arguments. They should then individually complete the personal reflection activity.
A set of A4 size posters to explain some of the key words needed for science experiments. (Precision, accuracy, errors, variables etc)
Included is a PowerPoint version which can be added to and edited. A pdf version which you can print out with the fonts I've used. And also one of the slides as a preview.
There are 7 slides (posters) three with images. All images are creative commons, which can be reused for commercial purposes.
Presentation and displays of the history of manned spaceflight in the US. This is the first part and covers the Mercury and Gemini program from 1961 to 1966.
