NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The human digestive system

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The human digestive system

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Organisation' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins by pupils given a bit of information about the tissues which make up the lining of the stomach. They will need to read this information in pairs and then answer questions in their book, once completed the pupils can self or peer-assess their work using the answers provided on the next slide. Pupils will then be introduced to the digestive system, it's role and the organs involved with this system. They should be able to remember some information from previous lessons on organ systems (see 'Principles of organisation' in my shop!). Now, pupils must read through another card of information in pairs and complete tasks on the board, these tasks will require pupils to label a diagram of a human body to show the locations of the major organ systems and also describe the function of these organs. The next task is a video which pupils will watch and answer questions, list of questions is provided as a worksheet. Pupils will then self-assess their work using the answers provided after the video has finished. The final activity is an exam-style question, pupils will answer this on the sheet and then mark their work using the mark scheme. The plenary task is a word search challenge, there are 10 words associated with digestion in the word search. Pupils will race to complete against each other to complete the word search. You can award a prize if you have any :) All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Osmosis

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Osmosis

This lesson is designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy Specification, particularly for the 'Cells' SoW. For more lessons designed for the new AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications please visit my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with a definition for osmosis and defining the difference between solvent and solutes. Pupils are then asked to think > pair > share about what they think a partially permeable membrane might be. In the next activity, pupils are given a definition for concentrated and dilute solutions and are shown three different diagrams, they need to decide whether they are showing pure water, a concentrated or a dilute solution. Now pupils are introduced to isotonic, hypertonic and hypotonic solutions. They are firstly shown what happens to animals cells in each of these solutions using an animation. Pupils will then need to match the type of solution to it's description and also complete a cartoon strip to explain what happens to animal cells in each of these solutions, a list of key words is provided. Students will then think about the importance of osmosis to plants and will need to match diagrams of plant cells in isotonic/hypertonic/hypotonic solutions to the correct description. The last activity is an exam-style question on osmosis, pupils can self-assess their work using the mark scheme provided. The plenary task is for pupils to write 5 summary sentences about what they have learnt so far using the list of key words provided. Thanks for looking :) please leave any feedback if you purchase!
