Science Key Words Translations Arabic of Scientific Skills and Biology

Science Key Words Translations Arabic of Scientific Skills and Biology

These worksheets have translations of key words and definitions from English into Arabic. The translations were done by a professional translator. The worksheets also have 'RAG' column where students can rate their learning in terms of language acquisition. I have uploaded the 'English' versions of the worksheet so you can see what the worksheets say. This resource is useful for anyone who teaches a significant number of arabic speaking students science. If this resources is useful please let me know as I have many more I can upload.

End of KS3 Project bundle

End of KS3 Project bundle

This is a series of 10 projects (all of which can be found individually in my shop) to cover all KS3 content before beginning GCSE. It is intended to take 1 term, with each project taking 4 to 6 lessons. This fits with schools wishing to start GCSE part way through Y9. The projects could also be used to consolidate or support throughout KS3 and GCSE depending of the needs of the groups.

Gregor Mendel

Gregor Mendel

An engaging lesson presentation (37 slides) that allows students to understand the contribution that Mendel made to the study of inheritance and genetics. The lesson begins by using a quick competition to get the students to work out the year that he published his findings and to work out his name using the letters of surnames from other famous scientists. Students will learn that he carried out his work on pea plants and the reasons for this. There is a clear link in this lesson to inheritance crosses and understanding genetic terminology as students are challenged to draw genetic diagrams to explain the observed results that Mendel got. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding This lesson is written for GCSE students but is suitable for A level Biology students who are beginning work on the monogenic inheritance topic
