Video resources featuring core practicals to support flipped learning, remote teaching and live practical work

We identified the most common practical experiments on GCSE courses in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, and for the Junior Cycle in the Republic of Ireland. In Scotland, although not mandatory, these practical skills are embedded into the specification at National 5. 

Fresh from the lab

We’ve just added four new practical videos with supporting resources, exclusive to Teach Chemistry, to help you and your learners get the most out of key experiments

Not a member of Teach Chemistry? Join for free today and get unlimited access to the full collection of videos, plus access a huge range of other benefits, including professional development, events and more.

Use the videos to …

  • prepare before running the practical: see all the steps clearly laid out, alongside teacher and technician notes.

  • introduce your learners to the experiment ahead of time through flipped learning, for more successful practical work.

  • revisit experiment methods and results quickly and easily for consolidation and revision.

Alongside the videos you will find supporting resources including key terms, integrated instructions, pause-and-think questions and much more.

Created for teachers, by teachers

We collated the best of what was available to teachers before developing our own videos, written and reviewed by teachers, with features such as animation to help learners link their practical work to theory and ensure that each practical activity has maximum impact.

We have also created and collated videos for 16–18 learner practical experiments.
