Radiation dangers, safety, risk, precautions. Ionisation, contamination, and irradiation.
Dangers of radiation. A complete and ready to deliver high quality GCSE lesson from Foxteach.
There is nothing to do ! Even if you do not have time to look at it in advance it is not a problem as the PPT will lead you smoothly through the lesson.
* Understand the dangers of “ionising” radiation and the damage they can cause (ManKinD).
* Know how to safely handle radioactive sources and protect yourself (TarDiS)
* Understand contamination and irradiation.
* Explain how ideas about the world can change.
Please note: This lesson does not cover “uses” as they are covered in the Barclayfox lesson 8 of this topic. This lesson is called “Nuclear radiation uses in medicine”.
My lessons cover the whole of this “atomic structure” topic but do not blindly follow the textbook order instead they use a structure that has proved highly successful over many years.
Uses in medicine lesson is here:
This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of learning activities some are noted below:
\* ALL answers are provided throughout!
\* Starter - recaps previous lessons (with answers).
\* Paired work activities.
\* Scientific literacy activity.
\* Homeworks - 2 - you choose.
\* Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’).
\* Video clip link (carefully selected – this alone can save you a lot of searching).
\* Gap fill activity.
\* Unscramble the words race.
\* Plenary quiz.
\* Student self-assessment versus objectives activity.
