At the present time I am Head of Science at an independent Prep School. Teaching KS3 Science so the majority of resources are KS3. I teach several year groups in mixed ability sets so most of my resource included differentiated resources to enable all students to engage whatever their ability level. In previous job taught AQA Triple Science so a selection of resources for teaching these concepts also can be found here.

Conduction - Remote/Home Learning Lesson

Conduction - Remote/Home Learning Lesson

(0)
This is a lesson I put together for my students to learn about Conduction remotely. I have recorded myself talking through the powerpoint I would usually use for this lesson in school. The video is broken into chunks so that they can complete various activities as we go through the lesson - including a simple practical they can carry out at home. Worksheet that goes along with this lesson included. Instructions shared with the students were: Watch Conduction Video 1 & 2 Carry out experiment explained in video - write down your results down on a scrap of paper as you will need them later Watch Conduction Video 3 Complete relevant sections on the Conduction worksheet - write as detailed answers as you can for each question Watch Conduction Video 4 Complete the rest of worksheet - write as detailed answers as you can for each question Obviously this was recorded with my own students in mind so there are references in video to meeting on Google Meet for support. So you will need to ignore these references. This was my first attempt at doing a videoed lesson so a little rough round the edges (much improved Convection lesson available) but still should save you a lot of time! My students really enjoyed this lesson and said that it almost felt like a ‘normal’ lesson at school! Hope you find it useful and that it saves you time at this stressful time! I am doing a whole unit on heat transfer at the moment so keep checking back for further lessons if you enjoy this format.
