This bundle is a result of a 3 year program to inspire physics to all grades, which has created lessons full of fun lab work, highly visual and original explanations to aid understanding, and easy to follow and fully explained math. This is just one unit of a total of 135 lessons created with the above philosophy in mind. For more details please look in my shop for the full content.
Try before you buy please download my 7 lesson bundle on light for grades 6,7 and 8, find it in my store. Thanks.
Special offer included in this bundle free of charge for a limited time is my Science Literacy Reading Articles bundle of 18 informative science articles and questions normally priced a $6.00. Receive this with my compliments in this bundle.
Fully explained practical work and demonstrations.
A powerful means of formative assessment for every lesson in the whole unit.
Regular homework to embed student learning.
A fantastic easy way to track pupils progress.
Peer and self-assessment for students review book checks.
Powerful and visually linked PowerPoints
Worksheets to provide practice, differentiation and extension work.
Important Information – the first slide of each lesson in this unit bundle starts with a quick quiz/test based on the previous lesson/s learning. Your pupils should answer the questions in a different coloured pen in their books. The second slide gives the answers and your pupils should self-assess or peer mark. This then gives you – the teacher – formative assessment on your pupils progress – recorded in their books. FOR EVERY LESSON. Which is fantastic evidence when book checks occur. Record the results of each test in your mark book, by asking the pupils in lessons, this takes 3 minutes, and you have fantastic evidence at hand for your mark book check and at parents evening. Also I ask my pupils to take photographs with their phones of each lesson and homework is to revise that lesson. Not only do you as a teacher tick so many boxes but most importantly your pupil’s progression in this subject improves.

A collection of 18 original, informative, light hearted, yet inspiring articles on various aspects of science namely Physics and Marine Biology.
Each text is written in an informal manor, describing in detail the science behind the title, followed by 3 – 4 questions from which the pupil has to dissect the answers from the text or formulate their own ideas.
Each article and set of questions is 2 sides of A4 in length.
1. A child of the Stars – where were you made?
2. Are we being watched – the difficulties of searching for alien life.
3. Bernadette the deadly yellow boxfish – she’s beautiful but evolution has packed a deadly punch, let Bernie tell you all.
4. Earthquakes and your fingernails – how do they happen and why are they like your fingernails?
5. Mass and Weight – what’s gravity got to do with it!
6. Nuclear Power part 1 – how we get electricity from the atom.
7. Nuclear Power part 2 – Time line of an explosion, and nuclear meltdown.
8. Red shift, The Doppler Effect and the Expanding Universe.
9. Samantha the red serpent star, let Sam describe her amazing biology to you.
10. SAR 11 – So just what is the most important life in the ocean?
11. Sir Isaac Newton, William Hershel and fluorescent corals – Ok just what have these in common.
12. So what is electricity – let your students ‘go with the flow’!
13. Sid the Sponge – Don’t take a bath with me, allow Sid to describe himself.
14. That old bar magnet called earth – magnets, solar wind and dead planets.
15. The Blue Dragon – this baby packs a real sting, but how?
16. The deadly wave called sound – sound is amazing and deadly.
17. The empty sea, a sad but true tale.
