KS3 Resources

Science teaching materials aimed at KS3 (age 11-14) students. I add materials here as and when I make them.

Funnel Diagrams

Funnel diagrams are arranged in a way that students complete the tasks outside of the central circle first, while the teacher is covering the content. After that, the students must answer the central question independently. This works as a great review or consolidation of the lesson content.

Download the MS Word version to type your own questions. Alternatively, use the PDF version which has nicer fonts, but you'll have to write (not type) your questions then photocopy it.

This Teach Sauce vlog post outlines the whole concept. You can also check out the KS3 chemical reactions unit to see some ready-made funnel diagrams.
