OCR Biology AS 2.6 Mitosis (New 2015 OCR Spec)

OCR Biology AS 2.6 Mitosis (New 2015 OCR Spec)

The lesson covers the key areas in Mitosis as required by the new specification and prepares the students for the eventual Formal Mitosis Practical they will be expected to do in their practical workbooks. The lesson was formally observed by two members of staff (as a joint observation) and the lesson’s key strengths as said by the observers (using this lesson pack) were: There was intense learning in the lesson. Differentiation was very advanced and made every segment of the lesson personalised to all students in the class. Stretch and challenge was appropriate for all students. Progress was demonstrated by all students at the end of the lesson. Socratic questioning was highly embedded in the lesson.

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Students arrange different biological things in order of size. I used this to introduce my year 7 students to the prefixes micrometre and nanometre. I printed this onto card and have reused it, but you could easily have this as a cut and stick activity. This is an activity I have used with year 7 students all the way to year 11 students.
