    Pupil Learning Outcomes:

    By the end of the lesson:



    Most pupils(Level 4+ -5): Carry out an investigation in which they
    change the


    volume of air available and
    keep at least one variable constant. Record time of burning in different


    volumes of oxygen in a suitable table. Make a conclusion appropriate
    to their results about the


    relationship between volume of air and time of burning.



    Less able pupils(Level 4): With help, carry out an investigation in
    which they attempt to vary the


    volume of air available. Measure time of burning in at least three
    different volumes of air. Record results so


    that they can be understood.
    Make an appropriate conclusion.




    More able pupils(Level 5+-6)All of the above , plus successfully
    control all important variables other than volume of air. Measure and record
    time of burning in different volumes of oxygen in a very clear results chart.
    Make


    repeat readings at each
    volume. Appreciate major sources of inaccuracy in their investigation. Make
    a c


    conclusion appropriate to their results about the relationship
    between volume and time of burning

    Differentiation : Abler pupils will work relatively quickly and will
    take repeat readings at each volume of


    air,they may recognize
    (perhaps with prompting and questioning )that it is important to take trouble
    to remove all the &lsquo;stale air&rsquo; from the beaker each time. Less able pupils will

    Show pupils a burning candle on a heatproof mat. Then invert a

    burning.




    Then brainstorm on
    a tall and short candle, which will go out first when covered with a beaker?








    Introduce practical
    activity explaining what


    they are required
    to do in


    groups of three and
    ask


    pupils to write
    down predictions and how they&rsquo;ll go about their experiment.

    Ask Pupils to write
    up their investigation and presnt results on table with conclusion?




    Go through pupils
    conclusions and identify misconceptions in class


    .

    Ask pupils to tidy
    up and dismiss class.

    Pupils to share
    ideas and


    predict which
    candle will


    go out first and
    why?










    Pupils to group
    themselves and complete worksheet F8 on How long can a candle burn?












    Abler pupils will
    work relatively quickly and will take repeat readings at each volume of
    air.Less able pupils will need help and encouragement.




    Pupils to write up
    their investigation and present results on table with conclusion.




    Pupils discuss
    ideas from conclusions and say if their predictions were right or wrong.


    Pupils tidy up
    before leaving.
