AS/A2 AQA BIO REVISION QUESTIONS

AS/A2 AQA BIO REVISION QUESTIONS

Perfect for AS and A2 AQA biology. I used created and used these two packs of questions for my exam revision and found them extremely useful, they can also be cut up and used as a stick and match task, or as flashcards. Roughly 35 pages of questions in each pack, so useful as an end of lesson review to be filled out throughout the year or to give to students as a pre-exam preparation task. Each question links specifically to a section of the AQA specification.

AQA GCSE (9-1) Science Picture Quiz

AQA GCSE (9-1) Science Picture Quiz

This is a picture quiz which includes 40 AQA GCSE Science (9-1) based pictures and diagrams. The students move around the room and state what the picture is or what it represents on an answer sheet. There is also a teacher answer sheet within the resource. I have used this with year 9, 10 and 11 science students to much success. A great resource as a revision summary or a pre-holiday exercise.

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

This revision guide is 92 pages long. It is composed of closed questions that cover every point of the 2019 0610 Biology syllabus. Pupils complete the revision guide by answering all the questions which gives them a summary of the whole course in one book. This is an essential revision tool and really helps pupils to structure their revision time and should improve their grades. It could even be used during the teaching of content instead of a notebook. This is the version for 2019 exams in June and November. 2020 version to follow. The price of this resource is set high because you can make as many copies as you like for the pupils in your classes. This is considerably cheaper than buying the required number of copies of any revision guide book. Please contact me if you notice any mistakes and I will edit the resource and upload a new version PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVISION GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANSWERS/SOLUTIONS DOUBLE CHECK YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE RIGHT YEAR (WHEN YOUR PUPILS WILL SIT THE IGCSEs)

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ 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 The first task is for pupils to consider the ways in which scientists can measure water pollution. Pupils will need to match the piece of equipment to the description of how it is used. Pupils can then assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is for pupils to think about living indicators of pollution, they can think > pair > share their ideas about what living organisms might give us an idea of the pollution levels in the local environment. After a class discussion the information on the PowerPoint slide will outline some of these examples of bio-indicators. The next task focuses on water bio-indicators, pupils will be in groups and one at a time get a chance to look at a poster of organisms which live in polluted to unpolluted water. Pupils will view the poster and then have to go back to their desks to try and recreate as much of it as they can. After a set period of time (as it could go on forever!) pupils can then assess their work against the poster and see how well they did. The next part of the lesson focuses on bioaccumulation of chemicals in marine organisms, pupils will have the chance to read through an article and will need to use the information in the article to come up with their own definition of ‘bioaccumulation’. Once pupils have completed this task you can reveal the definition for bioaccumulation and a diagram to simply depict how this process occurs in marine environments. The last part of the lesson looks at eutrophication, pupils will firstly watch a video about this process and will need to answer questions whilst watching. Once this is complete they can mark their work using the answers provided. Finally pupils will be given a blank cartoon strip, for which they will need to select the correct captions to go with the correct stage in the process of eutrophication as well as draw a diagram to depict this stage. The plenary task for pupils is for them to pretend they work for an environmental charity, they need to tweet a message to raise awareness abut the effect water pollutants can have on local biodiversity. 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 :)
