AQA GCSE (9-1) Science Picture Quiz

AQA GCSE (9-1) Science Picture Quiz

This is a picture quiz which includes 40 AQA GCSE Science (9-1) based pictures and diagrams. The students move around the room and state what the picture is or what it represents on an answer sheet. There is also a teacher answer sheet within the resource. I have used this with year 9, 10 and 11 science students to much success. A great resource as a revision summary or a pre-holiday exercise.

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

This revision guide is 92 pages long. It is composed of closed questions that cover every point of the 2019 0610 Biology syllabus. Pupils complete the revision guide by answering all the questions which gives them a summary of the whole course in one book. This is an essential revision tool and really helps pupils to structure their revision time and should improve their grades. It could even be used during the teaching of content instead of a notebook. This is the version for 2019 exams in June and November. 2020 version to follow. The price of this resource is set high because you can make as many copies as you like for the pupils in your classes. This is considerably cheaper than buying the required number of copies of any revision guide book. Please contact me if you notice any mistakes and I will edit the resource and upload a new version PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVISION GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANSWERS/SOLUTIONS DOUBLE CHECK YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE RIGHT YEAR (WHEN YOUR PUPILS WILL SIT THE IGCSEs)

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Water Pollution

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the ‘Ecology’ 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 first task is for pupils to consider the ways in which scientists can measure water pollution. Pupils will need to match the piece of equipment to the description of how it is used. Pupils can then assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is for pupils to think about living indicators of pollution, they can think > pair > share their ideas about what living organisms might give us an idea of the pollution levels in the local environment. After a class discussion the information on the PowerPoint slide will outline some of these examples of bio-indicators. The next task focuses on water bio-indicators, pupils will be in groups and one at a time get a chance to look at a poster of organisms which live in polluted to unpolluted water. Pupils will view the poster and then have to go back to their desks to try and recreate as much of it as they can. After a set period of time (as it could go on forever!) pupils can then assess their work against the poster and see how well they did. The next part of the lesson focuses on bioaccumulation of chemicals in marine organisms, pupils will have the chance to read through an article and will need to use the information in the article to come up with their own definition of ‘bioaccumulation’. Once pupils have completed this task you can reveal the definition for bioaccumulation and a diagram to simply depict how this process occurs in marine environments. The last part of the lesson looks at eutrophication, pupils will firstly watch a video about this process and will need to answer questions whilst watching. Once this is complete they can mark their work using the answers provided. Finally pupils will be given a blank cartoon strip, for which they will need to select the correct captions to go with the correct stage in the process of eutrophication as well as draw a diagram to depict this stage. The plenary task for pupils is for them to pretend they work for an environmental charity, they need to tweet a message to raise awareness abut the effect water pollutants can have on local biodiversity. 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 :)

Science Museum Treasure Trail

Science Museum Treasure Trail

This activity is designed to get students to focus and observe the items in the Science Museum e.g. Watson and Crick’s DNA, the enigma machine, Stephenson’s Rocket, petri dish of Fleming’s Penicillium mould etc. Suitable for 11-16 years olds. Answers are included. I have put together 2 tasks for them to complete in teams of 3-4 students. The whole quiz/treasure trail will take ~2 hours dependent on the competiviteness of the group and the team working skills. Task 1: Students need to find the answers to 30 questions in various parts of the museum and complete the answer sheet provided. Task 2: Students need to take 6 team selfies by 6 different objects in the museum. The answer sheet needs to be submitted to a teacher and these will be marked and the group with the highest score will win a prize. The selfies also need to be shown to a member of staff at the end of the trip. Feedback was extremely positive from my students - 15 year old boys. They really enjoyed it and learned something too!

3.6 Organisms Respond To Change Revision Bundle

3.6 Organisms Respond To Change Revision Bundle

Make a huge saving of 33% on these 5 revision resources: Four double-sided A3 revision sheets targeted at topic 3.6 of the AQA A-level syllabus alongside a relay quiz to further reinforce subject knowledge. Nervous Control sheets 1 and 2 deal with synapses, neurons, receptors, resting potential, action potential and more besides. The muscles sheet works through the structure of muscles and muscle types before examining sliding filament theory. The kidneys sheet works fully through the processes of ultrafiltration, reabsorption and osmoregulation. Please Note: I will be adding a further sheet regarding endocrine systems, autonomic control and plant response in the next few weeks.

Nervous Response 2 (A level) Revision Sheet / Knowledge Organiser

Nervous Response 2 (A level) Revision Sheet / Knowledge Organiser

This double sided sheet can be printed at A4 but works better as an A3 resource. This sheet covers the key areas of neuron structure, reflexes and synaptic transmission (including neuromuscular junction, summation, inhibition and drugs). Please note this sheet is part 2 of 2 and, when coupled with Sheet 1, a more comprehensive coverage of the necessary nervous control aspects results. Individual sections contain marking points/scores so as to allow easy feedback and AFL with the included full mark scheme. This gives you flexibility as to how you use the resource and opens up peer assessment/self assessment opportunities.
