Immune system overview

Immune system overview

Easy to follow PowerPoint Presentation (in a print friendly format), perfect for GCSE, A-Level and first year university students. GREAT as a revision resource - detailed enough to achieve A*. Contains detailed information and revision notes on recognition of foreign pathogens and phagocytosis, the role of T-cells, the role of B-cells, the role of antibodies, the destruction of the pathogens and the differences between active and passive immunity. Great for answering exam questions as the resource is full of useful information, in an easy-to-follow format. The resource helped me achieve A* at a-level - so is perfect for biology students. The resourse can be used as an interactive powerpoint (with hyperlinks attached for interactive use between slides) or printed out as revision sheets.

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Students arrange different biological things in order of size. I used this to introduce my year 7 students to the prefixes micrometre and nanometre. I printed this onto card and have reused it, but you could easily have this as a cut and stick activity. This is an activity I have used with year 7 students all the way to year 11 students.
