Aromatic Synthesis for new OCR A Chemistry specification 2015 onwards

Aromatic Synthesis for new OCR A Chemistry specification 2015 onwards

I have created a poster summarising all the key reactions that pupils need to know for aromatic organic synthesis. I recommend printing on A3. I have also included extra posters with parts removed - one has the names removed, another the conditions and another the display formulae. Pupils try to fill them in from memory. You could then set them the challenge of drawing the whole thing from memory. Finally there are 4 synthesis routes for pupils to plans (answer are in the notes). I recommend following this up with exam questions (for copyright reasons I cannot include these). An aliphatic synthesis lesson is also available to buy.

Deforestation Scenario game for AQA B3

Deforestation Scenario game for AQA B3

This engaging game was a hit with my triple science class. The class are given the following scenario: "You form the government of a small country that contains a large rainforest. Due to years of war and instability, the country is not popular with tourists. With very few other industries, the country is running out of money. All that you have is forest so you will need to decide whether to sell a portion. Whenever you sell forest, cross off the squares you have sold on your forest board using a marker pen. You have been borrowing money from other countries and have a debt of £2 000 000 which needs to be paid by the end of the game." They will then work in small groups to make as much money as possible from their rainforest. There will be consequences for their team depending on how much rainforest they choose to sell. They will learn about the reasons behind deforestation and the problems it creates. Follow up questions are included.

Sewage Game - the journey of a poo. For new AQA GCSE syllabus

Sewage Game - the journey of a poo. For new AQA GCSE syllabus

An engaging game to make a dull topic more interesting! Pupils are given a fact sheet to read about sewage, knowing they will need to answer questions on what they are reading. They then progress around the board, answering questions about different stages of sewage treatment in order to move their counter. A great way to revise the content - or even to teach it for the first time. This compliments my lesson on sewage which can be found here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/treating-waste-water-complete-lesson-about-sewage-for-new-aqa-chemistry-sow-2016-onwards-11397971 Buy as a bundle for £5 here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/sewage-complete-lesson-and-game-11613959

Living or Non Living

Living or Non Living

This is an activity for a Smart Board interactive whiteboard. It is a good starter for using when discussing living and non living organisms and the 7 life processes - MRS GREN (or MRS NERG!). There are various pictures on the board of living and non living things, which pupils have to come and drag under 2 columns - one for living and one for non living. They then have to say how they decided. I did this with a year 7 class to recap what they had done in year 6 and it was surprising that there was quite a lot of debate over which ones were living and which weren't.

Air Pollution Top Trumps, OCR 21st Century C1

Air Pollution Top Trumps, OCR 21st Century C1

I adapted this from another game on here. Pupils work in 4s of 5s. They deal out the cards. The first pupil picks up a card and states their category (i.e. ozone). Everyone then states the concentration that they have for ozone. The person with the LOWEST number wins all the cards from that round (I chose lowest rather than highest as we want our air pollution to be low). First person to get all the cards wins. Please leave feedback.

Testing for Ions game, card sort and worksheet for new OCR A Chemistry A Level

Cluedo-style game in which pupils try to identify the name of their neighbour's ionic compound using the results of chemical tests. My Year 13s found this game very engaging and did not want to stop playing! The resource also includes a summary of all the ions tests that they need to know, a blank copy of the summary for pupils to complete from memory and a card sort. Can be used for both AS and A2.

A2 Module 6.2  revision flashcards for new OCR spec 2015 onwards

A2 Module 6.2 revision flashcards for new OCR spec 2015 onwards

Flashcards summarising the whole of Chapter 6.2 (Nitrogen compounds, Polymers and Synthesis). Pupils often waste a lot of time making flashcards so I decided to make them for them. Idea for use: Print one set per pupil and let them cut them out. Ask them to sort them to sort them into three piles - green (good understanding), amber (some understanding) and red (no understanding). For every hour they spend revising, they should spend 30 minutes on red cards, 20 minutes on amber cards and 10 minutes on green cards. As they become more confident with red they can move to amber and from amber to green. Check back soon for more flashcards.

Aliphatic organic synthesis for OCR A 2015 onwards complete lesson

Aliphatic organic synthesis for OCR A 2015 onwards complete lesson

I was not satisfied with the synthesis route diagrams provided in the textbooks so I made my own. The poster summaries all the reactions from AS and A2 organic chemistry. Extra versions are provided with some details missing for pupils to fill in. Then a white board quiz allows pupils to practice different reactions and synthesis routes and a card sort allows them to create a large synthesis map from memory. This tried and tested lesson was a hit with my students. Aromatic synthesis lesson to follow.
