ADRENALINE

ADRENALINE

A concise, engaging lesson presentation (22 slides) which looks at the different responses of the body as a result of adrenaline release. In line with the actions of adrenaline, the lesson begins with a range of quiz competitions to introduce key terms and responses to the students. Once the students know that it causes both the breathing and heart rate to increase, they are challenged to complete a passage which brings this information together to explain how the increased respiration rate is related to the fight or flight tag line. Moving forwards, students will be introduced to the meaning of the term vasodilation and then asked to consider which organs will need extra blood flow during times of stress and conversely, which tissues can have blood directed away from them. The lesson finishes by looking at how a negative feedback loop is used as the final control to ensure that energy resources are not wasted during times when there is no stress.

The THYROID GLAND

The THYROID GLAND

A fully-resourced lesson which explores how the release of thyroxine from the thyroid gland regulates the metabolic rate and how a negative feedback loop is used as the final control. This lesson includes an engaging and detailed presentation (19 slides), a crossword and an understanding check task. The lesson begins by challenging the students knowledge of the endocrine system to get them to come up with the letters that form the name, “thyroid gland”. Students will be reminded that this gland releases thyroxine which is involved with the regulation of the metabolic rate. Students will learn that in order for the thyroid gland to release this hormone, it has to be stimulated by TSH from the pituitary gland which in turn was controlled by the hypothalamus. At this point, the students are challenged to put the order of the control mechanism in the right order on their worksheet. This leads them to the word negative which links to how a negative feedback loop is used as the final act in the mechanism. This lesson is designed for GCSE students but is suitable for A-level students too who need to know about this endocrine gland and also negative feedback

Homeostasis

Glucoregulation with details of control mechanisms and diagrams Osmoregulation Briefly uses diabetes as an example of factors that can affect homeostasis. Includes a research worksheet for students to complete to look at symptoms, treatment etc of different conditions that affect homeostasis.

AQA TRILOGY TRACKER SPREADSHEET

AQA TRILOGY TRACKER SPREADSHEET

A spreadsheet I have been working on to track scores and show progress after end of topic tests and mock exams. I have also included a required practical tracking sheet. In the main spreadsheet, raw end of topic test scores are entered to generate a gcse grade. The look up tables that calculate these grades are editable and in a separate tab on the spreadsheet, they happen to be set up to fit our in house tests that are all standardised out of 25 marks, but can be altered with ease by editing the raw score values. There is also space to record mock scores for biol chem and physics too. These have thier own look up table to add scores into once we know more on boundaries this summer, (the current figures used are purely to test the spreadhseet works). The main spreadhseet on the second tab can be copied and pasted into numerous extra tabs, depending on the number of your classes. Conditional formatting has been used so that once a classes target grades are added to the sheet, progress in relation to target can be colour coded. I haven’t used this live with classes yet, and intend to make a Y11 version and a purely triple version.

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

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.

Questions Project

Questions Project

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes a project out of question making. It is fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts. The differentiation opportunities are vast, these can be either by outcome or role allocation (e.g. captains will develop their leadership skills and may be the more able in the group). As stated at the start, it is linked to all levels and types of curricula, standards and specifications. My tip is just to try it out! This resource was prepared by Class Monitor, a secondary school science teacher and senior leader with two decades of experience in education. Class monitor has worked across three countries, has a post graduate qualification in PSHE qualification and an MA in education, find out more and get more ore resources at www.classmonitor.co.uk.

Biology revision mindmaps

Biology revision mindmaps

These are my mindmaps for the AQA Biology GCSE specification . I did it for myself when the new spec. 9-1 levels came out. It was my way of identifying how this spec. was structured. It can also be used for the Biology section of Trilogy, although the numbers may not match, the headings will. If a section is in higher tier only it is labelled with (H) and if it is only on the Biology and not the Trilogy it is labelled with (B). Although I did this primarily for myself, some of my colleagues are also using them and when I left my folder open on the desk I found students asking me for copies. I do not claim that they would suit everyone but if you have that sort of need for a complete overview, in a non-linear format, it might suit you. I have some students using them as tick lists, others highlighting the sections they want to cover for revision. I have even offered them at the start of a topic to certain students. Some would be frightened off by them, so you have to be selective. Each mindmap also contains the keywords and their definitions that now need to be learned in the relevant section. Individual mindmaps are available at £4 each.There is also a free resource that is a summary of the whole Biology specification.

Phospholipid Membrane & Membrane Permeability Experiment (A Level & IB)

Phospholipid Membrane & Membrane Permeability Experiment (A Level & IB)

This is a potential two lesson series where the students consolidate their learning from previous lessons by building a paper model of the cell membrane and they then plan an investigation into the permeability of membranes using colourimetry. Comes with a mark scheme and model results if the students so not achieve ideal answers.

The Heart - Structure & Function w/ Dissection (GCSE & 6th Form)

A series of lessons concerning the heart that are just as applicable at GCSE as they are at 6th Form. The lessons contain the outline for students to learn the structures of the heart prior to independently doing a dissection. There is also a task that outlines how cardiac muscles contracts to allow the heart to pump blood.

Fish Farming (Monkey Sea, Monkey Do) (GCSE)

Fish Farming (Monkey Sea, Monkey Do) (GCSE)

One of the most boring syllabus points can be taught in an inspiring way - the students make their own miniature fish farms and have to choose the conditions that they use to avoid killing the brine shrimp or allowing eutrophication to occur. All thats needed is a brine shrimp kit that costs £3 from Amazon. There is also a supplementary worksheet that can be given to consolidate learning from the experimental lesson

GCSE Glossary

GCSE Glossary

The Excel Document contains 390 key words that illustrates to students the importance (and volume) of vocabulary within the biology GCSE (whether International, AQA, OCR or Edexcel). I have also attached how the key words are utilised in topics. This is perfect for revision or as an introduction to a topic. or as ‘Key Word’ tests that are simple to mark and provide good feedback to students and parents. Expensive but definitely worth it! Any questions then please ask.
