Plant cell labelling activity

Plant cell labelling activity

This is just four slides so not a whole lesson but hopefully you will be able to copy them into your own lessons and I have done the fiddly work for you. This could be used as a plenary to apply learning to a new situation i.e. labelling a real micrograph of a plant cell. The first two slides show the cell labelled and unlabelled. You need to show this in slideshow in order to label the cell one sub-cellular structure at a time. The second two slides are a cloze activity. Again answers will fill in one at a time in slideshow. I print off the cells onto label sheets, 4 to a page. I’ve supplied these. Stick into centre of the page so that you can add labels around it. Some of my students need missing words on the table in front of them, so I have supplied these. Some also need to fill in gaps on a sheet due to time constraints or poor/slow handwriting, so I’ve supplied these as well.

Transpiration in plants lesson

Transpiration in plants lesson

This is preparation for the Reaction time required practical in AQA GCSE Trilogy. Slide 1 is a learning framework for the lesson. Slide 2 provides the key words for the lesson. Can simply be a visual aid to introduce the vocabulary. I tend to print this slide off for individuals in the class who would benefit from their own copy and for TAs. More able students use this as a basis for a mind map to make links between key words. Slide 3-5 are pictures of root hairs Slide 6-7 describe transpiration Slide 8-10 show how stomata work Slide 11 has a link to a YouTube video on 'sticky water’ Slide 12 explains transpiration in more detail Slide 13 Questions Slide 14 diagram of a potometer -need to explain how it works Slide 15 gives a method for setting up a practical on surface area of leaves and rate of transpiration. Two sheets supplied one has diagrams of transpiration to go with slide 12 and the other has diagrams of open and closed stomata to go with slides 9-10. I include these simply because I find them useful for particular students with my mixed ability classes. If I know a particular student makes a meal of using glue, I will print directly onto labels for them. I keep a supply of 4 labels to a page for this purpose.

Debates 101

Debates 101

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes debating fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts and some guidance for debating motions. It is useful because it is tried and tested, student, teacher and parent voice indicates that it makes a positive difference to learning and engagement. The learning objectives are skills based (empathy, listening, collaboration, research, collation, reflection, application, synthesis and presentation) as well as content driven as determined by the user’s choice although all debates usually improve an awareness of the social, economic and ethical aspects of an issue. 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!

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

AQA GCSE BIOLOGY/TRILOGY - Mastery Booklets for the 7 Teaching Topics

I have put together ‘mastery booklets’ that can be used for independent study for pupils to use after a section of the course has been covered. They are designed (with past paper questions and the answers) for the students to complete themselves. This is to help them gain a deeper knowledge without impacting on teacher workload. All the teacher needs to do is record when the students have completed and annotated the booklet. I have split the 7 sections into the topics for the paper 1 and the paper 2. These could be used for cover work and revision before the exams. Hope they’re useful. Harret

Kite Graph for Biotic and Abiotic data

Kite Graph for Biotic and Abiotic data

Plot data onto the spreadsheet and get a kite graph out. If you are looking at environmental factors affecting biotic components of an ecosystem, then this template will plot up to 2 abiotic sets of data over the kite. Thus you can see at a glance if the environmental factors are affecting your biotic species. You may plot any combination, eg, pH and light, or ph and moisture, or temperature and light. there are endless combinations you can look at, whilst comparing to your species research.

OCR Biology Revision Mat 9-1 (pgs 1 - 33)

Hi all! This is a revision mat I created to help my students summarise their work bit by bit to try to keep them on top of the enormous content of the new 9-1 2016 curriculum. Hopefully it will help with revision as it is a great little activity. I contains a mixture of diagrams, calculations, questions, definitions, formulae that are needed and a touch of fun. I will be adding further resources as I create them, this one goes up to page 33 of the OCR textbook. Keep me posted on how it goes! :-)
