This resource includes a highly visual 34-slide PowerPoint presentation, scaffolded notes for pupils, and a worksheet. In this resource, pupils will learn... 1) to compare and group together different kinds of rocks on the basis of their appearance and simple physical properties 2) to recognise that soils are made from rocks and organic matter 3) the rock cycle and the formation of igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks 4) to understand how cooling and solidifying of magma results in formation of igneous rocks. 
 5) to understand that sedimentary rocks are made by processes which include the deposition of rock fragments or organic material, or as a result of evaporation. 
 6) to understand how rock fragments are transported by flowing water or wind, and how grain size affects transport and settling of sediment; understand how landscape can be eroded. 
 7) to understand that metamorphic rocks are formed by action of heat and pressure on existing rocks. 
 8) to understand the meaning of the term ‘mineral’. 
 9) to know how forces generated by expansion, contraction and the freezing of water can lead to the physical weathering of rocks. 
 10) to know the different layers of a soil profile I hope you find this resource helpful.

**This resource has been recommended by the TES Resource Team** Get your learners thinking about electricity and electric circuits. My most popular resource includes: • A lucid and logical 69-slide PowerPoint which includes many visual aids. The slides are thoughtfully animated (not over-animated) to allow opportunities for learners to participate and promote class discussions. • Seven pages of interactive notes (scaffolded notes). These notes fit perfectly with the presentation. I find this activity keeps lower-level students engaged during the lessons while allowing differentiation for higher achievers. • A crossword (with answers), some homework questions and a quiz. **Just print and go! Or customize to fit the needs of your class.** Learning objectives covered in this resources are listed below. • By the end of these lessons, pupils should know: 1. that electricity is a form of energy. 2. that current electricity can be produced from cells, batteries or the mains 3. that there are a range of appliances in the home, which use electricity. 4. that we can represent components by symbols. 5. that current electricity flows in conductors but not in insulators. 6. that a complete path is needed from one side of the battery to the other for electricity to flow. 7. how a switch works. 8. that there are two types of circuit, series and parallel. 9. that current is measured in Amps. 10. that current is measured using an ammeter. 11. how to connect and use an ammeter. 12. that in a series circuit, the current is the same all the way round the circuit. 13. that in a parallel circuit, the current is shared but not lost or used up. 14. that the current in a series circuit depends upon the number and type of components used. 15. that a battery is a store of electrical energy. 16. that voltage is a measure of the amount of energy or push given to the current. 17. that more cells in series equals more voltage. 18. that the effect of voltage upon current and bulb brightness. 19. that an electric current causes a wire to become hot. . 20. that the bigger the current, the higher the temperature of the wire. 21. that if too much current flows, the wire will melt.

KS3 Physics (Year 9 Pressure and Moments) - Pressure in solids and fluids, upthrust, hydraulics

(1)
This resource includes a 50-slide PowerPoint presentation, guided notes and many differentiated worksheets/homework assignments on the topic of PRESSURE. By the end of these lessons, pupils will know that: 1) pressure exists on surfaces, in air and in liquids. 2) pressure is measured in Pascals (Pa) 3) on surfaces, pressure is calculated by dividing force by area. 4) pressure is smaller when a force is applied over a big area because the pressure is spread out over a big area. 5) pressure is bigger when a force is applied over a small area because the pressure is confined to a small area. 6) atmospheric pressure decreases with height, 7) liquid pressure increases with depth. 8) upthrust effects floating and sinking 9) hydraulics is an application of liquid pressure (qualitative and quantitative) I hope you find this resource useful. Thank you.
