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

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

(0)
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, and Chapters 1 and 2 of the Physics topic (Movement and postion and Forces and Shape). 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 sheet onto a double-sided coloured A3 sheet, then you can make each topic (Bio/Chem/Physics) a different colour to easily refer to them in class.

Organs and Systems Card Sort

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

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

(3)
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!
Card sort of Food tests and tests for gases Chemistry and Biology card sort

Card sort of Food tests and tests for gases Chemistry and Biology card sort

(0)
I wanted a resource that would challenge my students to REALLY think about the various food tests and how they fit together, as well as which chemicals are used. This resource also incorporates the chemistry side of testing for gases, what to use, how it works, etc. I couldn't find one to suit what I needed, so I made this. This card sort encourages students to really think about reagents used in food tests as well as what the colour changes and the results will be. The items covered in the card sort are: Test for reducing sugars Test for starch Test for proteins Test for fats Test for carbon dioxide Test for hydrogen Test for oxygen Test for an alkene Test for chlorine Test for ammonia Test for water (both of them) The boxes are all the same size, so students cannot find answers due to the size of the box. I have included a second document with the answers - so that you can accurately assess students with a glance. Give each student a copy of the '4 on one page' to cut up and stick in book, or laminate and use as a starter/plenary in groups. If you can think of any other "test for" - feed back to me in the comments and I will happily add/edit my resource. Thank you!
OCR Physics Revision Mat 9-1 (Pgs 1 - 23)

OCR Physics Revision Mat 9-1 (Pgs 1 - 23)

(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 23 of the OCR textbook. Keep me posted on how it goes! :-)
Specialised Cells Card sort

Specialised Cells Card sort

(2)
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!
Reproduction Revision Quiz and Board Game with answers

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!

Card sort of key words and definitions related to the environment, habitats and food chains.

(0)
This is a card sort designed for Year 7s and 8s for the Habitat, Environment and Food Chains topics in KS3. The card sort has the keyword on the left hand side and the definition on the right hand side. Possible variations for uses of these cards: -Group work: given the cards, separated, and they need to sort as a group. -Pair work: Use the keywords as a question for an opponent. -Give each student a card sort as a homework/classwork activity. -Give each student the page of cards to fold and stick the words back to back to make keywords 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!
Blood flow, Circulation, Heart, Artery, Vein sequencing Card sort
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Blood flow, Circulation, Heart, Artery, Vein sequencing Card sort

(0)
Finally! A card sort that helps students to put the different parts of the circulatory system through which blood flows around the body in the correct order. You can use this in one of two ways - 1. Students can put the parts in order starting at vena cava and sequencing all the parts through which blood flows around the body. OR 2. Students can sort the cards into two groups, those parts which carry 'oxygenated blood' and those which carry 'deoxygenated blood'. I use these cards from Year 7 all the way to Year 13. The cards come with a set of instructions: pin these to the cards and just let students decide which activity they want to do; more able will do both activities, less able will be able to do activity 2.
Edexcel 9-1 GCSE Revision Mats for CB1, CC1 CP1

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.

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.

Apparatus Match the Pictures

(0)
Are you tired of students identifying measuring cylinders as beakers and calling beakers "cups"?? Struggling with students getting names of apparatus wrong in test and in conversations? This is what you have been looking for! THIS is a resource that can be used for all years, particularly Year 7 apparatus identification and induction into secondary science, but also for Applications of Science BTEC course to help ensure students know their pieces of apparatus for their practical examination. The first page has the names of the common apparatus for KS3 and KS4, the second page has the pictures of the apparatus to help students to recognise them. 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! Laminate a class set of them if you want to use them repeatedly.
Intensive and Organic Farming

Intensive and Organic Farming

(0)
These cards can help students to understand the difference between intensive and organic farming, as well as the advantages and disadvantages of each. Given these cards, students can sort the cards into their various categories. An extension activity for students would be tasking them to independently research each of these advantages and disadvantages for each side and to build up a debate argument for and against each activity. I find this activity most useful for Year 11, 12 and 13 learners.

Solar System Section Card Sort for Year 7 : KS3

(0)
This card sort incorporates the key words and definitions from the Year 7 Solar System and Planets section. Use the cards as a starter activity, a plenary activity, or all together with other resources at the end of the year to do revision sessions. I particularly enjoy this resource because after 3 uses, most students can get the cards sorted quite quickly and in only a few minutes. Have fun!
