Renewable & Non-Renewable Energy Fact Cards

(0)
Renewable & Non-Renewable Energy Fact Cards - eleven brightly coloured fact cards each detailing the advantages and disadvantages of different renewable and non-renewable energy resources. Each card also gives a brief summary of how that particular energy resource is harvested and utilised.
Calculating Pressure

Calculating Pressure

(0)
Worksheet that guides students through the process of calculating the pressure underneath their feet. Having calculated their own pressure values, students then apply the concept of pressure to several practical examples.
Salt Solubility Data and Graphs

Salt Solubility Data and Graphs

(0)
Salt solubility data and graphs. The zipped file contains a spreadsheet and presentation containing solubility data and graphs for several different ionic salts (sodium acetate, sodium bromate, sodium formate, sodium chloride, sodium bicarbonate) and sucrose. Can be used alongside some questions as a quick starter or plenary activity to practice students’ data interpretation skills.
Writing Molecular Formulae

Writing Molecular Formulae

(0)
Writing molecular formulae. A presentation that guides students through the process of writing the molecular formula for a compound from its molecular (ball and stick) diagram. For an activity I usually print out the 10 different ball and stick diagrams included in the presentation and stick them around the classroom. I then get students to rotate around them identifying and counting their atoms against the stopwatch.
Elements, Compounds and Mixtures Literacy Task

Elements, Compounds and Mixtures Literacy Task

(0)
Elements, compounds and mixtures literacy task. Students are presented with several pieces of text, which they need to analyse and rearrange into the most appropriate order. They could then interrogate the text to pick out key scientific vocabulary, nouns, verbs etc.

Seesaw Balancing

(0)
A worksheet to support students investigating turning moments using a seesaw. The sheet gives full instructions for the practical and an outline results table for students to complete.
Microbes Around School
tjjweblogstjjweblogs

Microbes Around School

(0)
Microbes around school. As part of a CREST Award some of my students swabbed different surfaces around the school, grew the microbes on agar and recorded their results. This presentation can be used as a starter or plenary activity. I usually print off pictures of the eight different surfaces and get students to work in pairs or small groups to try and order them in terms of number of microbes. We then discuss the results and relate them to the standard of cleaning around the school.
Light Literacy Task

Bundle of Hassle-Free Chemistry Investigations
tjjweblogstjjweblogs

Bundle of Hassle-Free Chemistry Investigations

(0)
Bundle of Hassle-Free Chemistry Investigations - contains presentations for five simple chemistry investigations that work first time and require very little preparation. The investigations are: Investigating how temperature affects the rate sugar cubes dissolve; Investigating how speed of stirring affects the rate sugar cubes dissolve; Investigating how temperature affects the rate of lateral diffusion; Investigating how temperature affects the rate of a chemical reaction (sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid redox); Investigating how concentration affects the rate of a chemical reaction (sodium thiosulfate and hydrochloric acid redox). Each presentation contains instructions, diagrams, outline results table, outline graph.
Making Sense of Chemical Formulae
tjjweblogstjjweblogs

Making Sense of Chemical Formulae

(0)
Making Sense of Chemical Formulae - a quick starter or plenary activity. Students are shown some ball and stick molecular models and they need to identify the atoms present. Can be done against the clock to add a bit of competition.
The Human Eye
