    I have Year 12 Physicists the very last lesson on the very last day of term.

    We have not budget left to print paper resources and its not allowed to be fun eg a long quiz, any films etc. Although practicals are allowed.

    I have just been teaching them Thermal Physics.

    Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

    You don't want to leave lots of mess for technicians!

    Make hot air balloons with a bin bag and a hair drier / hot air gun.

    Measure acceleration and calculate the forces on different sized pieces of tissue paper rising in hot air.

    I have done something similar. We sat in the lesson together, with biscuits and squash, and talked about what Yr 13 would bring, what university physics would be like and I learnt a bit more about their career aspirations. It was an enjoyable chat, and I don't consider it a 'wasted' lesson one bit. I would have felt mean making them carry on working when they really wouldn't have been concentrating.
