Energy Efficiency Lesson
This is a fully differentiated lesson teaching pupils about energy efficiency
It is suggested that you include a practical such as the custard powder with Bunsen burner experiment. A you tube link for this is included within the PPT should you wish to show the pupils without conducting the experiment yourself.
This Science resource pack contains: A PPT (27 slides) and handouts (8 sheets) .
Starter Task: Two Thinking Skills questions- One on efficiency and one on energy transfer.
An energy transfer and efficiency activity-We suggest that the 'Differentiated Word Bank' be printed on the back of the energy transfer and efficiency activity sheet for ease of use should the pupils require it.
A YouTube clip on the custard powder experiment.
An activity on devices and percentage of waste.
Activity-Create a bar Graph based on the data for the devices and percentage of waste.
Extension Task: Create a pie chart on the data.
Plenary (Exit task) : Good Graph, Bad Graph-Pupils are shown examples of bar graphs and are asked if they are correct or incorrect.
In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .
