Increasing BIODIVERSITY

Increasing BIODIVERSITY

A resourced lesson which looks at a range of methods that are used to increase biodiversity. The lesson includes an engaging lesson presentation (31 slides) and an associated worksheet The lesson begins by getting students to recall the term biodiversity and time is taken to ensure that the meaning of this word is fully understood. The lesson takes the form of a bus ride around London, looking at some of the attractions which act to increase or maintain biodiversity. Students will “virtually” visit both London Zoo and Kew Gardens and will learn how methods such as the captive breeding programme and the Millenium Seed Bank are used to influence biodiversity. Along with the bus ride, students will compete in a number of quiz competitions which act to maintain engagement whilst introducing key terms or facts. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson to allow the students to check their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students.

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

NATIVE AUSTRALIAN WILDLIFE ADAPT TO THE ENVIRONMENT OF THE SOUTHERN LOST CITY

The dissected sandstone plateau of the Southern Lost City of Limmen National Park provide a distinctive habitat for a range of native wildlife. This unit has a focus on survival and adaptation to this area. The Limmen National Park was proclaimed in 2012 and research is in its early years. Those with an interest in the natural environment who ventured into the area when it was used as for cattle raising (pastoral leases) made lists of wildlife observed. In the environment within and around the Southern Lost City they began to record that certain native species were increasingly difficult to sight. Coinciding with these observations were the increasing sightings of intruding feral animals such as cane toads, feral cats and feral pigs. Their conclusion was that the feral intruders were having an affect on the survival rates of native wildlife by habitat modification and food resource reduction. Future research into this situation will shed further light on these impacts. Of particular concern were the reductions of 3 species covered in this unit. They have reached the "endangered" list and were heading for extinction within this area. Of particular concern were sightings of feral cats. Though not yet numerous in this park their numbers were likely to increase and their efficient hunting and killing skills would place native bird and small mammal species under threat. The feral cat situation is covered in another unit entitled "The feral cat menace - impact on Australian native wildlife". This unit can stand alone as an introduction to the impact of feral animals on native wildlife. It cat be used to introduce the topic of tha considerable problem caused by the increasing population and spread of feral cats which are regarded as the top predator affecting native Australian wildlife. That unit will also consider programmes carried out by the AWC (Australian Wildlife Conservancy) to conserve and protect native wildlife of Australia and avoid (if possible)adding names to the list of species that have become extinct. The worksheets (colour and black and white) are included so that hard copies can be distributed.

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Development Decisions

The balance between providing resources for a growing and technologically advanced population and protecting biodiversity is an ever-increasing problem. In this activity, students gain an insight into the work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) and model the conflict between development and the needs of people and the environment. They role play a stakeholder meeting between local villagers and developers, mediated by conservation researchers, to see if they can come to an agreement on proposed development ideas. Learning Outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and why it is important Students discuss negative and positive environmental and social impacts of development to make a decision.

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Conserving Nature: KS3 - Dam Dilemma

Technological development in low income countries such as Uganda is important for improving the economy and providing a better quality of life for its population. However, quite often these developments carry a risk of negatively affecting the environment and the lives of local people. The work of researchers at The University of Oxford’s Interdisciplinary Centre for Conservation Science (ICCS) aims to ensure that new developments not only ‘do no harm’, but actively bring benefit to both biodiversity and local communities. In this activity students look at the positive and negative impacts of building more hydroelectric dams on Ugandan rivers. They use this information to write a balanced argument. Learning outcomes: Students learn what conservation is and how it can protect biodiversity loss Students learn to write a balanced argument, considering environmental, economic and social issues See more at: https://www.oxfordsparks.ox.ac.uk/content/conserving-nature

Matching animals to their habitat

Matching animals to their habitat

This lesson is suitable for children in KS1 and lower KS2. It is part of a wider unit about London Zoo and is an ideal preparatory lesson for a trip there. It can also be used as a Science lesson as part of the Living Things and their Habitats programme of study. The animals have escaped at the zoo and the keeper needs your help! The colourful presentation first encourages children to describe the features of animals. A group activity then challenges children to match animals to their names, description and habitat. It includes a variety of animals including fish, birds, mammals, insects and amphibians. In the activity, children match animals to their description and habitat. It is differentiated three ways: LA - Children just match animals to their habitats. MA -Children match animals to their description and habitat. UA - Children fill in the names of the animals and match them to their description and habitat. Finally, an extension activity challenges children to classify animals as fish, birds, mammals, insects or amphibians. If you like this resource, please review it!

AQA Biology (B2) GCSE 9-1 chapter outline and extended writing tasks with marking grids

Included is a chapter outline based on Kerboodle for AQA GCSE 9-1 Biology (B2) The schedule identifies the homework/ extended writing assessment and marking grid which matches each chapter. Included in this pack is all of the extended writing questions and marking grids identified in the schedule. The extended writing question pack includes a past paper extended writing question for GCSE Biology with a marking grid feedback sheet. The marking grid has a space to write what went wells (WWW) and even better Ifs. The grid also contains a SPAG section where the students can be given a grade for the level of SPAG that they have used, and a suggested way of improving their SPAG. The levelled answers are to act as a mark scheme/ model answer. This makes marking specific to the students, provides consistency and saves time. Student feedback from using this model of assessment has been very positive.

Ten lesson powerpoints for teaching the A2 AQA A level Biology Unit 5: Energy transfer in and between organisms. Some powerpoints include exam questions on them but I have also included tasks that have exam questions from exampro which I cannot upload due to copywright. All powerpoints are tailor made for the AQA syllabus and can be used in with the AQA A level text book (If I have referenced page numbers thats the book it will be from). I am selling all powerpoints separately for £2 or £3 each so buying all separately would come to £27. Therefore buying together will save 1/3.

Animals often compete with each other for food, mates and territory. Within a community each species depends on other species for food, shelter, pollination, seed dispersal etc. If one species is removed it can affect the whole community. This is called interdependence. A stable community is one where all the species and environmental factors are in balance so that population sizes remain fairly constant. Students should be able to extract and interpret information from charts, graphs, and tables relating to the interaction of organisms within a community.
