Lesson Plan Teacher: Gary Hanley Context/topic of Lesson: Thermal Physics- Latent Heat Date: 31/01/22 Subject: Physics Time/period(s): 11:20-12:10 Lesson 5 Grade Group: 11 Group 4 Room No: Science Lab 3 No. of Students Girls: 0 Boys: 5 Prior Learning: The terminology of latent heat will be a new concept to students in todays lesson. However, they will have a considerable amount of prior knowledge surrounding thermal physics. In the previous lesson students investigated the difference between temperature and heat and discussed the characteristics of thermometers. In grade 9/10 students would have covered thermal energy in the form of phase change, which is directly linked to content covered in todays lesson. Lesson Objective: Develop understanding of specific latent heat Learning Outcomes / Success criteria: Define latent heat and specific latent heat Differentiate between evaporation and boiling Perform calculations surrounding specific latent heat Resources: Advance Preparation: N/A Powerpoint presentation Worksheet with calculation problems Visual, Auditory and Kinaesthetic learners: Visual: PowerPoint has been created with colours that is easy to read from Auditory: Listening to instruction, peer discussion. Special Needs: N/A Risk Assessment: N/A Learner Profile Development: □ Inquirers □ Communicators □ Open-minded □ Risk-taker □ Creative thinkers □ Principled self-managers □ Caring team member □ Reflective learners Differentiation Strategies: Calculations will be scaffolded to provide challenges for students of all levels Questions will be asked throughout the lesson, both higher and lower order questions will be used prompting and challenging kids as needed. Key Vocabulary: Temperature, thermal energy, latent heat, fusion, vaporisation, evaporation, boiling Time: Teacher Actions: Starter 10 mins Teacher will introduce task to students using PowerPoint presentation Student Learning: Assessment Opportunities: Students will complete a short task based on the previous lesson. They will summarise how an unmarked thermometer can be calibrated and complete short calculations on converting Assessment of students prior knowledge Observation of students while completing task and discussion upon completion temperatures Activities Task 1: 15 mins Task 2: 10 mins Teacher will introduce topic of latent heat with a discussion surrounding graph. Teacher will then instruct students to complete research task Students will contribute to discussion offering suggestions Students will complete research task individually Students will contribute Discussion of key to discussion of key concepts of lesson using concepts using the notes on PowerPoint research task. Students will make amendments to notes if anomalies found. Observation of students while completing tasks Probing higher and lower order questioning of students Questioning of students while covering content. Example questions will be covered Plenary 15 mins Introduce task surrounding calculations on specific latent heat Students will complete a worksheet on calculations based on specific latent heat, this will consolidate learning from the lesson Observation of students while completing task and discussing method and answers with them Home Learning Opportunities: Reading task has been set on kognity (online textbook) for students to further their knowledge on the topic.
