NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Helping the heart

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Helping the heart

This lesson is designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology 'Organisation' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology, Chemistry and Physics SoW please visit my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with an introduction to the types of problems which may arise with the heart, for example leaky valves or problems with the natural pacemaker cells. Pupils are then given a grid with problems of the heart, causes and how to fix the problem all jumbled up. Students will need to shade the boxes that all go together the same colour. For lower ability students they will probably need to discuss this with others around them and they want to to check with you before they start to colour. Once completed the students can self-assess their work. The next activity should take up a large part of the lesson, around the room place a couple of copies of the posters found at the end of the PowerPoint slide. Pupils will need to walk around the room and use this information to complete the tasks displayed on the board. (If a class is quite disruptive you may want to place this information on desks and not allow students out of their seat!). Once completed pupils can sit back down, swap their work with the person next to them and mark their work using the answers provided. The last activity is a past-paper question which involves comprehension and evaluation skills to be implemented. Once again the mark scheme is provided so pupils can assess their own work. The plenary activity is for pupils to 3 facts, 2 key words and 1 question about what they have learnt this lesson. All resources are included within the PowerPoint presentation. Any questions please leave a comment, if you downloaded and used this resource please leave feedback for me :) thanks!

Biology for IGCSE Experiments and investigations for PLANTS – part2

Biology for IGCSE Experiments and investigations for PLANTS – part2

In Biology IGCSE practical tests, the questions focus on the experiments and investigations for plants and animals. The questions are not straight forward, the questions could focus on the reasons of using a certain part in the apparatus or how to distinguish between substances, etc. so this interactive presentation is the first part of the experiments and investigations especially for plants. Each one is explained in depth in the context of the questions types in practical test papers.

Name the Science Equipment

Name the Science Equipment

How I would use... Challenge the pupils to name as many pieces of equipment as they can in one minute. Then work as a pair to share answers. Finally pairs exchange answers with other pairs in the class until they have a full set.
