NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Plant diseases & responses HT

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Plant diseases & responses HT

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Infection & Response' SoW for the higher tier. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The first part of this lesson is a recap on the plant diseases students should have already covered within the 'infection & response' unit - rose black stop and tobacco mosaic virus. Plants will then be asked to come up with a brainstorm of the symptoms plants may exhibit when they are diseased. Once pupils have discussed this and tried to come up with some ideas you can reveal some of the common symptoms on the PowerPoint slide, along with images and examples. The next slide looks at the ways in which plant diseases can be diagnosed, from gardening manuals to monoclonal antibody testing kits. The next activity focuses on the role of certain minerals in the growth and development of plants, firstly students will draw a table in their book and then they will given a slip of information about one of the mineral ions - nitrates, magnesium or potassium. Pupils will need to walk around the room or swap these slips of paper with people on the same table as them to complete the table, they can then assess their work. The final part of the lesson focuses on plant defence responses, firstly pupils will be shown some diagrams of plants and their defence methods and will be asked to think > pair > share the potential ways plants can defend against disease. Pupils will then be given a card sort with different plant defence mechanisms, students need to sort these into three different categories - physical barrier, chemical barrier, defence against herbivore. Once completed pupils can then assess their work using the answers provided. The final task is an exam-style question on what they have learnt that lesson, pupils of higher ability may want to complete these questions in silence at the backs of their book. Pupils can then self or peer-assess their work. Plenary activity is to write 3 key words, 2 facts and 1 question about what pupils have learnt that lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The rate of photosynthesis (liming factors)

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - The rate of photosynthesis (liming factors)

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Combined Science:Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Bioenergetics' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The lesson begins by students thinking about the raw materials needed for plants to photosynthesise and which factors might limit the rate. The three factors which students will need to learn about are then revealed - carbon dioxide, light intensity and temperature. Three limiting factor graphs are then shown for each of these factors and students need to have a go at explaining what the graphs are showing, as a class discussion. Pupils will then need to complete a fill-in-the-blank task and self- their assess their work using the answers provided. Next pupils are shown a green leaf and a variegated leaf and are asked to think>pair>share which leaf they believe will have a higher rate of photosynthesis, and why. This then leads to pupils learning that less chlorophyll means less photosynthesis will take place, which could lead to stunted growth. The next part of the lesson focuses on pupils being able to use practical equipment to set up an investigation which measure the effect of light intensity on rate of photosynthesis. Pupils will firstly be given some images of equipment they could use and are asked to come up with a potential method for this investigation. After this pupils are then shown a video where they have to answers questions about the variables in this investigation and finally they are given a set of results to plot data and analyse it. The plenary is a silent 5 task where pupils need to answer questions about what they learnt this lesson on their own in their books. All resources are included either at the end of the presentation or as a separate file. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

Drawing bar charts and line graphs in science. KS3 KS4

It's your lucky day! Two lessons in one.... AND homework! Lets be honest. If you were 13 and in science... you would much rather here "It's practical day" rather than "It's graph day!" These two lessons aim to show students easily why graphs are important and how to use them to get the most marks in their exam. It even includes a practical. And a song. Follow me on @scipreproom. Don't worry. I didn't write the song. The youtuber gets all that glory.
