Adaptation, variation, environmental & inherited variation, effects of and on the environment, food chains and webs, pyramid of numbers, pyramids of biomass, bioaccumulation and pesticides - KS3 Biology 6 complete lesson bundle.

This bundle from barclayfox covers KS3 Biology: Variation both continuous and discontinuous. Adaptation in animals and plants. Effects of the environment (enviromental variation and inherited variation) Food chains and food webs. Effects on the environment. Transfers in food chains, food webs, energy loss, pyramids of number, calculating biomass, pyramids of biomass, bioaccumulation, pesticides. (Please see the individual lessons if you wish to see a full write up of what each lesson covers).

AQA B1 CELLS GAP TASK

AQA B1 CELLS GAP TASK

I used this after an small assessed lesson. Includes labelling of animal cell, matching of cell structures and functions and 3 images of cells to decide which one is what type of cell and why.

GCSE Worksheet Pack on Transport in Plants: Transpiration

GCSE Worksheet Pack on Transport in Plants: Transpiration

A collection of four visually appealing worksheets covering all the main aspects of the GCSE topic: transport in plants. Transpiration is a challenging topic and these worksheets will help students understand the key points and familiarise themselves with key words. All worksheets are provided with a mark scheme and designed to encourage independent learning by students. Included in the pack are the following 1.) a worksheet on transport in plants 2.) a worksheet on how water and minerals move into the roots 3.) a worksheet on the process of transpiration 4.) a worksheet on transpiration rate and how to measure it

AQA 9-1 GCSE Biology (Trilogy) - Homeostasis and Response Knowledge Organiser - Revision

AQA 9-1 GCSE Biology (Trilogy) - Homeostasis and Response Knowledge Organiser - Revision

A knowledge organiser for the homeostasis and response section of the AQA GCSE Combined Science (trilogy) 8464 specification. Contains all the key information from the topic on two sides of A4 for revision and revision activities. Includes information about the required practical for this topic as well. For AQA GCSE Biology, see my other resources for a knowledge organiser that also includes the extra materials.
