Organs and Systems Card Sort

Organs and Systems Card Sort

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.

Specialised Cells Card sort

Specialised Cells Card sort

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!

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

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!

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

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.

OCR Physics Equations matching game - All Physics equations, formulae and units

OCR Physics Equations matching game - All Physics equations, formulae and units

This game contains ALL 33 symbols and units used in the OCR course. It also includes all 20 equations, symbol equations and units that need to be memorised for the course. The equations and formulae and using them make up 60-70% of the exam papers, so learning them is the best way to guarantee marks! I created this game as my students have difficulty in remembering the Physics formulae and the units which go with the quantities. You can use them in a variety of ways. If you take the first and second pages and match them back to back students can ask one another the questions Or they can ‘self study’ with the cards on the table answer-side down. Or you can have them all as individual cards face up and students can match them that way. If you print each set onto a different colour of paper, when you work with them in class it will help to keep them in sets and ensure that the students do not jumble them up. Hope these help you. Great as a resource that students can use at home to help them get the equations and formulae for Physics into their heads.

Chemical Formulae and their Names

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!

Periodic Table Symbols and Names cardsort

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!

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

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!

Reproduction Revision Quiz and Board Game with answers

Reproduction Revision Quiz and Board Game with answers

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!

Ecology, Environment, Cells and Living things Loop Game

Ecology, Environment, Cells and Living things Loop Game

This is a great game that matches questions about Ecology, the Environment, Cells and Living things to their answers-which are on other cards. Great for end of topic quizzes and for student's problem-solving skills. The above photograph shows more or less what the resource will look like when the game is complete and the cards are properly assembled into their loop. (This photograph is of another loop game – but same concept). This resource contains a pack of 30 cards, and is great for a class of 30 or less pupils. You can print the cards onto coloured paper and laminate them, you’ll only need 1 set per class. Each card has a question on the top and an unrelated answer at the bottom. The question at the top relates to an answer on a card elsewhere in the pack, and the answer on the bottom relates to a question elsewhere in the pack. This game is excellent because students need to be able to answer each question to be able to locate the answer on another card, and they need to understand and be able to work out what the question would be for a particular answer to locate the question. This is a subtle but effective way to teach students both content and exam technique: because the skill of knowing the answer in a test or quiz is never enough: they also need to be able to work out with what question the answer will be prompted. Have fun!

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

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

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.
