Activate 1:  Working Scientifically 1.1  Asking Scientific Questions

Activate 1: Working Scientifically 1.1 Asking Scientific Questions

Complete lesson PPT with learning outcomes, new knowledge and activities detailed on the slides. This is the first lesson in the 'Working Scientifically' section. The resource is designed to be used with the Activate activity sheet, Asking Scientific Questions, and to support pupils aiming for developing and secure outcomes. All pupils should be able to state some questions that can be investigated; most pupils should also be able to describe how scientists develop an idea into a question that can be investigated; whilst some pupils should, in addition, be able to identify independent, dependent, and control variables. Supporting information can be found on page 2 and 3 of the blue Activate 1 KS3 Science Textbook.

KS3 Plant Biology Scheme of Work

KS3 Plant Biology Scheme of Work

This is a whole scheme of work of 15 lessons. They all include powerpoint presentations and worksheets for guidance for each of the practical activities. Money saved from selling this is going to go back to buying practical equipment for outdoor investigations. Will keep people updated :) L01: Plant Classification (opportunity for outdoor activity) I recommend investing in the field studies council's 'playing fields plant identification key' for L1 but the activity can be done without this too). L02: Making a dichotomous key (opportunity for outdoor activity) Worksheet of leaves is adapted from naturedetectives leaf identification sheet and is a free resource from them. Uploaded here for convenience. https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/leaf-identification-6123843 ) L03: Sampling techniques: theory lesson on quadrats and the process L04: Sampling using quadrats (opportunity for outdoor activity) L05: Capture Recapture Snail investigation (introduces the idea and the theory) L05.5: Capture recapture lesson follow up (collecting snails and introducing formula and calculations for lower ability) L05.5: Capture recapture lesson follow up (collecting snails and introducing formula and calculations for higher ability) L06: Parts of a plant and plant dissection L07: Pollination and pollen tube growth investigation L08: Asexual reproduction: practical activity propagating plants L09: Seed Dispersal (opportunity for outdoor activity) L10: Seed germination: theory and practical investigation L11: Plant adaptations. Investigation of holly leaves L12: Plant adaptations: Transpiration (theory heavy) L13: Life cycle of a plant L15: Revision placement and answer sheet
