The provided unit of work “Chemical reactions” is designed for Liverpool Boys’ high school

for stage 5. The outcomes and content are aligned with the new syllabus provided by Board

of studies (2017) under the topic Chemical World. It can be used for year 9 or 10. The

prerequisite for this unit is the structure of atom, periodic table and arrangement of atoms

in periodic table by atomic number. Though, some initial classes are dedicated to the

revision of these topics, but it is expected that these topics are pre covered before

execution of this unit. The duration of this unit is for 5 weeks and it weighs 25% of

assessment weightage. The rubric and all the resources required for this unit are submitted

along with the unit.

The unit is designed to use different pedagogical methods like explicit teaching with use of

metalanguage and developing mind maps, and inquiry based learning that includes the

development of experimental skills and making chemistry more exciting. Efficient teaching

includes teaching concepts explicitly in small steps along with a practice which is guided by

students; so that all the students can be benefitted from it (O’Neill, Geoghegan & Petersen,

2013). The unit allows teachers to talk interactively with students keeping them busy in

different activities by providing sequential instructions.

Ramnarain (2014) has stated that inquiry based leaning helps students develop key scientific

ideas by methods of raising questions, collecting first hand or secondary data, analysing

data and drawing conclusions. The unit submitted is designed to engage students by

experimental work (which involves asking questions and observing different chemical

reactions and drawing conclusions) and to build their chemical literacy. A student who is

chemical literate can understand the big ideas of chemistry in a better way (Shwartz, Ben-

Zvi & Hofstein, 2005).


Concept of flipped classroom has been used during week 3 and week 4 of the unit. The

flipped classroom setting helps teachers in utilizing the class timing more efficiently in

discussions the theory and/or demonstration of the experiments (Smith, 2017) as students

watch the same before the class. Each student is supposed to post a comment/ question on

the online discussion board after watching the video. This will not only ensure their

participation and also to help teacher in identifying the students who need extra help, thus

incorporating differentiation in the classroom (Sterling, 2012).

Lang et al., (2017) have discussed that the incorporation of ICT in classroom teaching is

highly common and desirable nowadays and how mobile devices can be utilised as a catalyst

for learning. ICT has been incorporated in this unit with the help of google slides, kahoot

quiz, online discussion board and flipped classroom. It is not assumed that every student will

have the resources at home to watch the video. Therefore, resources will be uploaded at

the start of the unit, so that students can visit school library to watch the video. Also, in

case, any student who does not have a mobile phone can be paired up with another student

to play Kahoot quiz.

Overall, an attempt has been made to design an engaging unit which provides ample

opportunities to students to understand concepts of chemical reactions with hands on

experience and to develop critical thinking skills; and to teacher to design lesson plans easily

and efficiently.
Unit: Chemical Reactions

Stage 5 Duration: 5-6 weeks

Science Details: 4 lessons per week; 55 minutes

each lesson

Summary:

History of chemistry and the changes it has been through over the time are interesting.

Naming of compounds used to be like laughing gas, quicklime etc. With the increasing

number of compounds, a systematic naming process of chemicals was established by the

French scientist Antionne Lavoisier in 1787.

Chemistry is incorporated in our day to day lives. From the second we wake up till we sleep,

our day is full of chemistry. An example is of table salt which is a compound called sodium

chloride, NaCl or combustion of fuel in our automobiles or dissolving a teaspoon of sugar in

a cup of tea. We are surrounded by chemical reactions.

The unit is designed to provide opportunities to all the students to understand the chemical

reactions by experiments. Students will maintain a logbook/ journal to maintain the records

of the experiments and classroom notes and discussions during the 5 weeks. This logbook

will be submitted and assessed at the end of this unit. All the worksheets must be glued in

the logbook. Worksheet B is a generalised worksheet (with required titles) provided in the

resources which can be distributed for any experiment.
