Lesson Planned

Thermal Conductivity – GCSE Physics

This resource is a free example of the lesson that I offer.

This is a fully differentiated lesson aimed at teaching the new AQA GCSE Physics and Trilogy Physics specification, and links to the Energy and Energy resources module, including the required practical involving thermal conductivity.

This lesson has 5 learning objectives that are structured in the IDEAL format:

*Identify some factors that affect the rate of heat transfer.

*Describe how to improve heat transfer.

*Explain, using results, which insulator was best at its job.

*Apply your understanding of air as a conductor to explain why this was the best insulator.

*Link your results to explain how we make sure that double glazed windows are energy efficient.

This lesson is designed with a challenge objective and challenge questions throughout to stretch your most able students, whilst supporting your LA students.

Review the lesson before teaching to see how the animations and objectives will work in your lesson.
