KS3 Science Resources - On the way!
Science Sauce currently has a collection of free flipped learning lessons for Biology teachers and students, aimed at Age 14-16 students.
Key Stage 3 (Age 11-14) Science resources are in development and a series of lesson plans are scheduled to be ready for the start of the school year, August/September 2018. I know that's a long way off, but a lot goes into creating these resources!
In the meantime I'll be continuously adding KS3 Science videos to the Youtube channel over this term (April-June 2018), so keep an eye on that if you teach age 11-14 Science students.
How does a flipped learning lesson work?
- Just download the teacher lesson guide and print enough student task sheets for your students. Give out the task sheets as homework to students (BEFORE studying the lesson content in class)
- The student task sheet has a lesson code to easily link students to the self-study resources (often a video) here on Science Sauce, which they use to complete the task sheet.
- In your next class students come already having a knowledge of the key facts as they have learned them from the self-study resources. In class they are ready to engage in the content. The teacher lesson guide provides the lesson outline with structured activities to use in class.
All of the resources described above are available for free, without sign-up.
What's available on Science Sauce?
Teacher lesson guides, student self study resources (e.g. videos) and student task sheets. No sign-up necessary. All of the resources for each lesson are contained on a single web page. Click here to browse biology resources.
For a small fee:
Each lesson has accompanying revision notes and a practice/assessment sheet with it, and these are paid resources. Note that you can do complete flipped learning lessons from Science Sauce without paying for ANYTHING.
You're welcome to use the free resources without committing to buy anything. I won't take it personally.
What is Flipped Learning?
Flipped learning is when students are assigned the learning to do as homework, before their classroom lesson, through videos, readings or other independent learning activities. When students come to class, they already have the foundation knowledge, and class time can be used to fully engage in the content.
