Welcome to practical physicsPracticle physics - practical activities designed for use in the classroom with 11 to 19 year olds

Putting together a scheme of work

The Practical Physics website is not designed to support any particular physics course, so you will need to select experiments that suit your course and your students. You can plan ahead by constructing a ‘scheme of work’, an outline sketch for a sequence of lessons showing all the resources you will use to cover a topic – experiments, audio-visual material, etc. 
The document Teaching Radioactivity April 2009 illustrates how information printed at the bottom of each Practical Physics experiment can be used. Simply ‘copy’ the information printed at the bottom of each experiment, and then ‘paste’ it into your scheme of work.
