sporobolo19sporobolo19

Activate 2- Using Electromagnets worksheet for Year 8

(0)
Year 8 students can watch a series of videos to support their completion of the worksheet. As the teacher, you can give students the option to complete the gapfill or complete their own explanation of the use of electromagnets in the three devices once they have watched the video; (alternatively, students can use the AQA Activate 2 textbook to complete this task). An answer sheet is also provided.

P12.6 Uses of Ultra sound

(0)
This resource may be used for a low to mid ability. It firstly gains their interest using a 2d image to begin a discussion and explores how ultrasound (echos) are ultimately used to produce prenatal scans
B10.4 The Brain
sporobolo19sporobolo19

B10.4 The Brain

(0)
Students have an option to choose from two starters which involves either discussing the function of the brain and make a list of your thoughts OR discuss why we use brain scans having watched a video. The main part of the lesson gives students and opportunity to describe the structure and function of the brain. This is followed by the completion of a practical co-ordination task several times to see if they improve by learning. Results are then analysed by drawing a suitable graph or chart. Higher-tier students then complete an additional worksheet to investigate studies of the brain and new techniques for imaging the brain. Student can also complete a variety of plenaries to consolidate their learning. Mark schemes for all activities are also included with this resources.
P2.3 More About Radiation- Global warming
sporobolo19sporobolo19

P2.3 More About Radiation- Global warming

(0)
This lesson introduces the idea of how the temperature of systems (e.g. the earth and its atmosphere) could be controlled. It then focuses on skills such as graph interpretation to understand how factors such as green house gas emissions from human activity can enhance the green house effect and therefore cause global warming. Lastly, students get to use their creative skills, all their knowledge and understanding covered in the lesson to create a poster to describe and explain the process of global warming.
Variables_light intensity and rate of photosynthesis
sporobolo19sporobolo19

Variables_light intensity and rate of photosynthesis

(0)
This is a worksheet which may be set as homework before students complete a practical on how light intensity affects the rate of photosynthesis. Alternatively students may use this resource as a prerequisite to a 6 mark question on this concept. Students are given a set of bullet points and are required to complete a table by the placing the bullet points in the correct part of the table (e.g. name of variable, Specific example of variable in rate of photosynthesis experiment and apparatus used to measure the variable). The answer sheet is also included.
