This lesson begins with an introduction to the types of problems which may arise with the heart, for example leaky valves or problems with the natural pacemaker cells. Pupils are then given a grid with problems of the heart, causes and how to fix the problem all jumbled up. Students will need to shade the boxes that all go together the same colour. For lower ability students they will probably need to discuss this with others around them and they want to to check with you before they start to colour.
Once completed the students can self-assess their work.
The next activity should take up a large part of the lesson, around the room place a couple of copies of the posters found at the end of the PowerPoint slide. Pupils will need to walk around the room and use this information to complete the tasks displayed on the board. (If a class is quite disruptive you may want to place this information on desks and not allow students out of their seat!).
Once completed pupils can sit back down, swap their work with the person next to them and mark their work using the answers provided.
The last activity is a past-paper question which involves comprehension and evaluation skills to be implemented. Once again the mark scheme is provided so pupils can assess their own work.
The plenary activity is for pupils to 3 facts, 2 key words and 1 question about what they have learnt this lesson.
All resources are included within the PowerPoint presentation.
