Specialised Cells Card sort

(1)
At last! All those little specialised cells for both plants and animals on one card sort! This card sort has the name, structure, function and a picture of each specialised cell that students need to know for KS3 and GCSE. I use this resource for both my Year 7s and for my Year 10 Applied Science BTEC group - because these same cells are present in the curriculum for both groups. The resource can be used in oodles of different ways; - Students can sort and stick in. Perhaps even get them to research and add appropriate colours to the different parts. -You can make 'pair sets' (one between two students), laminate them and use them over and over for starters or plenaries. -You can clip and place onto a slide for students to pair up for games of splat (put picture and function of cell and students need to put their hand on both when the name of the cell is said). -You can keep the first column as a solid strip and only cut up the others (or do this with any column) to make it easier. -If you haven't taught the topic yet, you can give them the cards, and a CGP book and get them to work out which card goes with which: that way also giving them some access to literacy within Science. -Use it any way you can think of! I find interactive learning is certainly the best way, and these cards facilitate the learning of students so that they can discover specialised cells for themselves!
Balancing Equations

Balancing Equations

(0)
Have you ever tried to think of equations for your students to practice balancing equations on, but you've just run out of ideas? Here are a full 4 pages of equations that you can give them to balance, including a bit of space for calculations. You can use this resource as a starter, as the main part of your lesson or as the plenary. Copy this on to a double sided A3 sheet to make it easier; then they're all on a single page. BETTER YET: You get the answers too - which means you don't have to work out all the answers to the worksheet yourself. Have fun!
Chemical Formulae and their Names

Chemical Formulae and their Names

(2)
This is a table containing the majority of chemical formulae that students will come across in GCSE. I use this table for both my Chemistry GCSE students and my BTEC Applied Science students to get them used to the chemical formulae and their written names. I also challenge my higher ability Year 9s with this page. On the second page the table has been completed: This page I use for a card sort for pairs of students. The second page can also be used to create revision cards by folding them on the middle line and gluing them together. Have fun and happy learning!
OCR Physics Facts Revision cards Summary

OCR Physics Facts Revision cards Summary

(0)
There are a number of facts that are just expected to be known for the Physics exam. Like the value for atmospheric pressure (100000Pa) or the value for the gravitational field strength on Earth or the specific heat capacity for water… These are required knowledge to be able to do many of the calculations, and if they are not known, easy marks get thrown away. I have gone through all the textbooks and past papers and found and listed ALL the facts that need to be known for an exam, and then popped them on to handy revision cards for you, so that you can pass them out to your class, create a starter activity where they match the cards, or you can make a set for your GCSE-aged child to help them revise. Have fun!

iGCSE Physics Equations and iGCSE Physics Formulae with their Units all on one page

(2)
Hello everyone! I made this page for all iGCSE scientists for their Physics exams. The resource includes all the formulae and equations needed for Paper 1 and Paper 2, and also includes the UNITS that students need to learn. I wasn’t able to find anything suitable for the new scheme, so I borrowed a layout idea from a previously available resource on here and made my own page from scratch. Included in the download you’ll get the colour version and the black and white version. Enjoy it - I hope it helps you!

I know how frustrating and time consuming it is to try to find resources for your students. I have downloaded all the Physics Sample Papers and Exam papers issued by Edexcel for the 9-1 Papers along with their markschemes and placed them on TES for you. I have no copyright on these and they are freely available elsewhere, as well as through Edexcel as individual downloads that you need to save one by one, I just felt it easier to put them all in one place for you, as a single download. With sensible names. I will keep updating this download as the years go by for you. If you would like other resources, please do check out my shop. I have summary sheets, A3 pages of in-class summary activities and even the whole curriculum onto question-and-answer revision cards so that your students can quiz each other as lesson starters, or make their own cards at home to aid their revision.

iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Biology Curriculum Roadmap (for teaching over 2 years) and Learning Objectives

(2)
Use this resource to schedule the new iGCSE 9-1 Biology Curriculum over 2 years. This provides the Learning objectives for Double (Paper 1 only) or Triple Biology (Papers 1 & 2). The roadmap shows how to timetable and schedule it all into the terms while leaving adequate space for revision. Hope it is helpful. I also have resources that summarise chapters onto single A3 pages to assist students with their learning; please check out my available resources. :-)
Reproduction Revision Quiz and Board Game with answers
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Reproduction Revision Quiz and Board Game with answers

(1)
This is a fantastic resource to round up the Year 7 Human Reproduction topic. The resource can either be used as Quiz questions to save a bit of time; or as a board game if you wanted the students to have a bit more fun. Use at the end of the topic and combine with other Quiz cards at the end of the Year for a full-year revision syllabus. The final page has the board for the game; this should be printed on to A3 paper. Instructions are included on the first card, as: "All players begin on the ‘Start’ square. Each player rolls dice to start and moves that number of squares. If landing on an instruction square (i.e. “miss a go”)-follow the instruction. If landing on a Q square, answer the question correctly to move the stated number of squares forward. If question answered incorrectly, stay where you are. First player to ‘End’ square who answers the final question correctly, wins." If you print the first 3 question pages onto coloured paper and laminate, this will make them easy to combine with different colours for the end of year revision session to make them easier to sort back into topic sets afterwards. Have fun!
Edexcel 9-1 Equations Revision cards

Edexcel 9-1 Equations Revision cards

(0)
Every equation in the new specification laid out on to revision cards for you. Print them back to back or stick together if you wish. These equation cards will help you to learn the equations you need to know, and the ones that are given (because you’ll be given some in words only - you need to study the abbreviated formulae). You will need to know every unit of each quantity, whether the equation is one you need to know or it is one you are given. Happy revising! :-)
Five Kingdoms Card Sort
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Five Kingdoms Card Sort

(0)
These picture cards help students to use the main characteristics of organisms to classify the organisms into each one of the 5 main kingdoms (animal, plant, fungi, prokaryote, protoctista) These will help to develop students’ problem solving skills and/or give them some independence in gaining some research skills. There are 25 cards in the pack. These cards can be used in various different ways: 1. In groups of 2 or 3, get students to sort the cards into one of the 5 Kingdoms. The fun is in working out which card goes into which kingdom, and getting them to argue it out. 2. Give each student a card and get them to do some research on the organism on the card. Answers are included on the final page. Have fun!
Calculating masses of reactants and products

Calculating masses of reactants and products

(1)
This resource is a collection I have made over the years of 12 GCSE Chemistry questions for students to calculate the mass of reactants and products. Use this resource to assist students through the calculations, or as a piece of homework to ensure they understand the work. Questions can be used in tests, as starters, as plenaries, etc.
Calculating theoretical and percentage yield

This resource gives step-by-step instructions of how to calculate theoretical and percentage yields of reactions. There are also a few exercises students can try themselves. I hope this helps you! This is part two of the four important Chemistry Calculations
Organs and Systems Card Sort
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Organs and Systems Card Sort

(2)
A Card sort that has the names, functions and pictures of the different main organs within the body. Can be used as starter, plenary, etc. Students can use this resource in a variety of ways: -Sort the cards in the three columns as given. -Sort the cards and identify them according to the system they are in. -Arrange the picture cards according to the approximate location of the organ from the top of the body downwards. -In pairs, one could pick up a card and ask the other to find the two that match. -You could put the parts on a slide with screen grabs and create a game of "splat" (where two students have to touch the parts that go with a particular word, i.e. "liver" - then hopefully they would touch the drawing of the liver and the function of the liver). -Any other use you can think of! I find this helps students to identify the organs once they move to playing with the body model. Sometimes in smaller groups, once they have sorted organs according to position, I'll give them the body model to do it there too. My students also love Splat as it is interactive and competitive.
Periodic Table Symbols and Names cardsort

Periodic Table Symbols and Names cardsort

(1)
This is a gem of a resource: it has 36 elements of the periodic table: their symbol along with their name. This will assist students to learn the names and symbols of elements quickly and easily. An extension to this could be getting students to put the elements in order, or to place the elements into their groups, or, for older students place the elements into their combining power sets. Have fun!
Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Revision Mats for CB1, CC1 CP1
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Revision Mats for CB1, CC1 CP1

(0)
These revision mats were designed to summarise the first chapter of each of the new Biology, Chemistry and Physics units. Each sheet also includes revision and summary information on two core practicals that fall within the unit. They do include the details of which Pearson Edexcel textbook page numbers each little section refers to for reference if the student wishes to go back and recap. They also include some exam-style questions. Our students responded really well to these: basically I summarise the pages, we give them out, the students fill them in a memorise the pages, and then they do pretty ace in their assessment as the assessments now are about knowing the content backwards (the revision mat) and then because they know the content, application within the assessment is far easier no matter what question is asked. I hope they help.
iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Section A Chemistry Biology Chpt 1&2 Revision Mat Broadsheet Bundle
tlandsbergtlandsberg

iGCSE Edexcel 9-1 Section A Chemistry Biology Chpt 1&2 Revision Mat Broadsheet Bundle

(1)
This is a bundle of A3 summary sheets I made for my students using the Pearson iGCSE Student book: the questions in each box inspire students to summarise the work that they need to know for this section. THis resource includes the first two chapters of each of the Biology (Section A: Life Processes and The Variety of Living Organisms) and Chemistry (Section A: Kinetic Theory, Diffusion, Atomic Structure) topics. I am gradually adding the other Chapters as I go along. I would print each of these topics on an A3 sheet double sided, so that the same topic is on a double-sided sheet. It would also be good to pop each double sided-sheet onto a coloured A3 sheet, then you can make each topic (Bio/Chem) a different colour to easily refer to them in class.

OCR Biology Revision Mat 9-1 (pgs 1 - 33)

(0)
Hi all! This is a revision mat I created to help my students summarise their work bit by bit to try to keep them on top of the enormous content of the new 9-1 2016 curriculum. Hopefully it will help with revision as it is a great little activity. I contains a mixture of diagrams, calculations, questions, definitions, formulae that are needed and a touch of fun. I will be adding further resources as I create them, this one goes up to page 33 of the OCR textbook. Keep me posted on how it goes! :-)
Hazard Symbols Match the pictures

Hazard Symbols Match the pictures

(0)
This is a resource that can be used for all years, particularly Year 7 lab safety induction into secondary science, but also for Applications of Science BTEC course to help ensure students know their hazard symbols. The first page has the names of the hazard symbols, the second page has the pictures of the hazard symbols. This resource can be used in a number of different ways, depending what you want to do and what your students are familiar with: -A starter or plenary activity -Group work: they're given the cards, separated, and they need to sort and pair as a group. -Pair work: Use the keywords as a question for an opponent to locate the answer. -Give each student a card sort (separated already) as a homework/classwork activity. -Give each student the two pages of cards to stick the words and the symbol back to back to make key idea revision cards to learn for revision. -Choose a few as a starter activity, jumble them up, and pop onto a slide for the beginning of a lesson -Any other use you can think of! If you use as a class set for starters or plenaries: laminate them, they will last longer and be reusable. *Oct 2017: I have updated this resource to also now have the new red and black symbols included. Hope it helps*

Compounds and their formulae

(0)
This is a resource is of back to back cards of chemical compound names and their formulae. Print each page. Stick the pages back to back, and you'll be able to cut out the different circuit components to use as revision/quiz cards. Great for spot-checks that students know the various different components.
