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

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.
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!

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!
Five Kingdoms Card Sort

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!
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!
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*
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!

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.
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.

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.

Forces and Gravity Taboo Game
tlandsbergtlandsberg

Forces and Gravity Taboo Game

(0)
This game helps students to develop their explanations and descriptions of words; to be able to ‘talk around’ certain words helps to develop examination skills for later down the line. This game of taboo involves 2-3 players. Player 1 is given a keyword that the other two players need to guess, but player 1 is given two words on their card under the heading ‘Taboo’ that they are not allowed to say. Player 1 must talk around these words and give enough clues to the other player/other two players to be able to guess what the keyword is. The keyword also cannot be said.

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.
