Pupils will be taught about the history of the Bunsen burner. There is an opportunity for the teacher to model how to set up the bunsen burner. They will then have to create a flowchart on setting up a Bunsen burner. Once this is complete, pupils will take it in turns to peer assess each other on accuracy and safety.
Included in this pack are A4 certificates and credit card size bunsen burner licenses. The exit task is based on our interactive 5W activity. the 5w selector will select one of the 5ws (who, what, where, when or why) and the teacher should pose questions based on this selection about the Bunsen Burner. Pupils can fill in the 5w sheet as the plenary/exit task progresses.
In our lessons, all key words are added to our KS3 Science - Scientific Vocabulary A-Z .
