Year 7 Science Revision
The topics that you will tested on on Monday 2nd December are:
• Energy resources
• Acids and alkalis
• Cells, tissues and organ systems
Revision is very important if you want to achieve your best. Our memory works by constantly using
information. Revising means we are using the information.
Useful Websites:
1. The BBC bitesize website has lots of information, activities and quizzes for you to revise from. Remember to choose the
topics you have covered in year 7!
2. Download short revision clips to your computer or mobile phone from the following website: Be sure you use the clips
relevant to your year!,Secondary&SeriesTitle=Collins%20
3. Test yourself using Doc Brown’s quizzes. Be sure you test yourself on the test relevant to your year!
Energy Resources

Energy Resources and the environment
Non- renewable energy
Also know as fossil fuels.
Examples of fossil fuels:
• coal
• oil
• gas
They are non-renewable
because they have taken
millions of year to make and
we can’t make them in our
lifetime (they will run out).
Geothermal Energy
Uses the heat energy
in the Earth to
generate electricity
+ no pollution
- Found in very few
places in the world
Wave Energy
Uses kinetic energy in
waves to generate
+ no pollution
- Needs lots of
machines to get enough
energy, look ugly
Tidal Energy
Uses the gravitational
potential energy in tides to
generate electricity
+ reliable as always two
tides a day
- Costs a lot to build a local
dam, could cause flooding
Uses the chemical energy in
living things to generate
+ no special equipment
needed so can used in
poorer countries
- Large areas of land are
needed to grow enough
Renewable energy
Examples of renewable
energy resources are:
• solar power
• wind power
• tidal power
• wave power
• hydroelectric power
• geothermal power
• biomass
They are renewable
because they will not run
out like fossil fuels will in
our lifetime.
Uses flowing water
(kinetic energy) to
generate electricity
+ no pollution
- Costs a lot of money
to build a dam
Wind Energy
Uses the wind
(kinetic energy) to
+ no pollution, quite
cheap and easy to
- Some people think
they are ugly, only
works if windy!
Solar Energy
Uses the sun (heat energy)
to generate electricity or
heat up water
+ no pollution,
renewable (the sun
won’t run out any time
- expensive, only
works if sunny!
Nuclear Energy
Uses the chemical energy in
metals to generate
+ no harmful gases
- non-renewable (uranium
will run out), produces
dangerous radioactive
Recycling, Reusing, Reducing
Recycling, reusing, reducing helps the environment because it means new objects don’t have to be
made using energy resources. This can reduce pollution. Examples of what you could do are: using
reusing plastic bags, turning lights off when you don’t need them, recycling aluminium cans.
Acids and Alkalis
Hazard Symbols
• Acids contain the element hydrogen
• Alkalis contain a hydroxide (OH oxygen and hydrogen).
• Examples of acids in the home are
vinegar, oranges and grapefruits.
• Examples of alkalis in the home are
soaps, oven cleaners and washing
• Examples of acids in the science
laboratory are hydrochloric acid and
sulphuric acid.
Indictors are used to say whether
liquids or solutions are acidic, neutral
or alkaline
• Examples of alkalis in the science
laboratory are sodium hydroxide,
potassium hydroxide.
Litmus paper
Litmus paper is an indicator. If in a
neutral solution it’s colour is
unchanged, it turns red in an acidic
solution and blue in an alkaline
pH scale
Acids and alkalis are corrosive and have to be used
carefully. Scientists use hazard symbols to help know
about the dangers of chemicals.
flammable –
catches fire
Harmful – e.g.
when swallowed,
breathed in
Radiation –
possibly causing
DNA damage
Universal indicator can be used to measure how strong or weak an acid or
alkali is (this means it gives more information than Litmus paper). Universal
indicator is a mixture of several dyes extracted from plants. The overall
colour the indicator solution is compared with the range of colours in the pH
scale (above).
A neutral solution has a pH of 7. An acidic solution has a pH of 1 to 6 (strong
acid = 1 to 3, weak acid = 4 to 6). An alkaline solution has a pH of 8 to 14
(weak alkali = 8 to 10, strong alkali = 11 to 14).
Corrosive – attacks
and destroys living
Toxic - Can
cause death
hazard –
substance that
is dangerous
to the
Irritant– can cause
reddening and
blistering of the skin
Oxidising –
provides oxygen to
make other
substances burn
Explosive – substance
that can explode
Reactions between acids and alkalis are called
neutralisation reactions. We use neutralisation
reactions to help us:
• Indigestion tablets to reduce excess stomach acid
• Farmers add lime (alkali) to soil to neutralise excess
acidity from acid rain.
•Toothpaste (alkali) neutralises acid that builds up on
our teeth.

Tissues, Organs, Systems
Animal cells and plant cells can form tissues, like
muscle tissue. A living tissue is made from a group
of cells with a similar structure and function,
which all work together to do a particular job.
Organ Systems
An organ system is made from a group of different organs, which all
work together to do a particular job.
Circulatory System
Digestive System
Here are some examples of tissues:
• muscle
• the lining of the intestine
• the lining of the lungs
• phloem (tubes that carry dissolved sugar around
a plant)
Job: To transport blood and
substances around the body.
• root hair tissue (for plants to take up water and
minerals from the soil)
Job: To break food we eat into
smaller pieces so that we can absorb
it into our blood.
