SCIENCE DISPLAY - Science jokes

(0)
Ready made Science display for any lab. 20 Science jokes and their explanations. Print out and stick randomly on board (all jokes have humorous cartoons etc too). Students have to match the joke with the correct explanation. Will cover a large board! (just miss a few jokes out to cover smaller board). Very popular! Probably best for seondary, but why not push those primary kids?

EVERYTHING you need to teach this topic. Presentations, worksheets, practicals and revision material. Very useful for A level too. Great value for money for the amount of work you will save. Written by a very experienced IB Physics teacher. Presentations feature humour too!
Law of Reflection
simoninpng

Law of Reflection

(1)
A lesson for IGCSE (14-6 year old) Coordinated Science although this will also work at KS3 (11-14 year olds). The slide that says 'Follow Mr Porter' I normally take them outside and show them how to play 'Wall Ball' and hence demonstrate the law of reflection. Please message me if you don't know 'wall ball'. The sheets are exercises in using the law, either drawing rays of light to show light being bounced off mirrors to find treasure on a treasure map or trying to 'zap' a dog (I have a running joke about my hate of dogs in my lessons). Please feel free to substitute something other than a dog!

Electromagnetic induction GCSE/IGCSE

Electromagnetic induction GCSE/IGCSE

(0)
All they need to know for IGCSE/GCSE Physics. The transformers lesson (also available from the same author) follows on nicely from this. This assumes you have a generator/dynamo to demonstrate and you have wire/magnets/multimeters for them to induce their own current.
Gravity, mass and weight

Gravity, mass and weight

(0)
The "True of false" opening activity is a great way to assess their understanding before the lesson starts. Emphasise throughout the lesson that gravity is a force between ALL objects (many students have been taught lower down the school that gravity is only what pulls them to the earth). The work sheet should give a good assessment of the understanding of the lesson. The last two questions will really stretch their (and maybe their teacher's!) understanding.
