Human defence responses - complete lesson (KS4)

Human defence responses - complete lesson (KS4)

A full lesson based on the new AQA (B5.7) SOW. The lesson covers the skin, nose and trachea/bronchi as the first line of defence. A differentiated question grid is used to apply knowledge and to conduct AFL (answers included). The lesson then moves onto the white blood cells and their role in phagocytosis, antibody and antitoxin production. Students then apply their knowledge to a PP question (answers included). The plenary is based on students reflecting upon their progress against the learning objectives.

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Progress, RAG style, learning outcomes sheets for use with all the Edexcel Combined Science Biology topics. I created these over the summer break of 2017, along with other additional resources to support my students that are now in year 11 who have had to go from starting the old GCSE to the new style GCSE. Although, I have already used these along with the others of chemistry, physics, separate chemistry and my KS3 sheets that I created at the same time, with all 10 of my classes this academic year and I have received such positive feedback from all my students and other staff who have also now began to use them and seen such a positive result. I give the relevant sheet to the students at the start of a topic and then at the start of each lesson, after the starter/walk in task, I have the relevant outcomes for that lesson from the list on a ppt slide for them to identify on their sheet whilst I'm taking the register, to read through and ask themselves how much do they know of it already and then to ask themselves again at the end of the lesson. So the students feel its beneficial to have the outcomes in writing and for them to have to really think about them at the start rather than just listen to me reading and pointing them out. To then visually see for themselves if they feel that they have taken something from the lesson and achieved the goals. Also they are finding them such a help when it comes to revision. Additional benefits include helping them track what they have missed if they are absent, so clearly know what they need to catch up on and to be able to open their books as a teacher and quickly identify from the colours where individuals are struggling or finding aspects easy, and during one to one chats being able to use it to talk through what they feel that they need a little more help on.

Transfers in food chains, energy loss, pyramids of numbers and biomass, bioaccumulation, pesticides.

Transfers in food chains, energy loss, pyramids of numbers and biomass, bioaccumulation, pesticides.

A complete, and ready to deliver, high quality KS3 lesson from Barclayfox. (For USA - this lesson is for use between 6th to 8th grade). This is a complete lesson from start to end, you do not need to spend many hours carefully planning, creating, resourcing and improving this lesson after each use. I have already spent those hours preparing this lesson for my students and improving it over many years. This is a very high quality lesson. There is nothing for you to do but give it a quick look through and familiarise yourself with it. Lesson objectives: * Represent food chains using Pyramids of numbers. * Describe how energy is lost as it transfers down the food chain. * Calculate biomass and create pyramids of biomass. * Explain bioaccumulation of pesticides and the effect. This carefully crafted lesson is over 30 slides long, and is full of these learning activities: * Notes to help the teacher. * Starter - complete the food web. * Starter - simple task where students self-assess against the objectives. * Matching game - answers are provided. * Role play - spread of pesticides up the food chain. * Questions – all answers are provided. * Peer marking & Self marking opportunities * Up and about activity - role play * Theory slides (carefully sculpted, interspaced with learning activities, not ‘death by powerpoint’). * Activity sheet - with answers - simply print it off for each student if required. * Play ball opportunities * Video clip links - several (carefully selected – this alone can save you 20+ minutes of searching). * Paired work activities – all answers are provided. * Homework - optional / at your discretion using the activity sheet. * Scientific Literacy activity. * Scientific Numeracy activity * SMSC opportunity - use of pesticides & effect on organisms. * Student self-assessment versus objectives activity – so learners can judge for themselves how much they have learnt. * Extension activities – just in case additional activities are required. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your friends and family by purchasing more lessons created by “Barclayfox” once they appear on TES. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this lesson, and leave a positive review. This lesson is part of a series, whilst they all work very well as standalone individual lessons you may wish to buy others from the series: 0. Bundles – contain all of these lessons at a discounted price. 1. Variation 2 to 6 - please see inside the powerpoint for the list Thank you, and happy teaching! Yours, Barclayfox

Diseases caused by fungi and protists - complete lesson (KS4)

Diseases caused by fungi and protists - complete lesson (KS4)

A full lesson based on the new AQA (B5.6) SOW. This lesson uses cordyceps fungi to incite interest during the starter. It then focuses on athletes foot and rose black spot - red font is used to indicate where students should take notes. A differentiated question grid is used to apply learning/conduct AFL (answers included). The lesson then covers malaria ahead of a final PP question (answers included). There is then a short quiz based on the lessons content - students can be elected to answer by throwing round a soft toy or whiteboards can be used. A final 'back up' plenary involves students reflecting upon their progress against the learning objectives.
