Ecosystems and Quadrats Whole Lesson KS3

Ecosystems and Quadrats Whole Lesson KS3

This resources encompasses a whole lesson on ecosystems and quadrats. It is especially useful as there is no outdoor field work required, so handy for rainy days and difficult classes too. There is a lesson presentation as well as printable worksheets included within the powerpoint. Students can use paper quadrats and paper fields to practice quadrat sampling. I have used this on a lesson observation and it was most successful.

Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis

No other chemical process is as crucial for the existence of life as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy. This Mini Lecture deals with the basic processes taking place in the chloroplasts of plants with lecture snippets of John Walker, Hartmut Michel, and Steven Chu.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Food production

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Food production

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 Pupils are firstly asked to come up with a food chain for humans eating rice, then humans eating chickens and to consider the differences in energy efficiency between the two. This then leads onto the second slide which explains how shorter food chains mean more efficient food production. The second task is for pupils to think > pair > share ideas about methods farmers could employ to ensure animals gain new biomass at an efficient rate. Once pupils have written their ideas down in their books the answers can be revealed on the PowerPoint, students can check their work against the answers and correct anything they need to. The methods listed on the PowerPoint have disadvantages, pupils should then have a short discussion in pairs of what these negatives are before they are revealed. The next part of the lesson focuses on fish stocks, students are given some information and are asked to consider how we might sustainably manage fish stocks. Once students have some to discuss as groups and then as a class, pupils are given a set of questions they will need to answer whilst watching a video. Once this is complete students can self-assess their work. The last part of the lesson focuses on biotechnology in food production. Students will be given some information sheet in their groups and should use this information to answer a set of questions, once pupils have completed these questions they can self or peer-assess their work using the mark scheme provided. The very last task may be more suited to higher-ability classes. Pupils will be given a set of jumbled up sentences, students need to place the sentences in the correct order to describe the process of making mycoprotein, students can assess their work once complete. 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 GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Transfers of biomass

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Transfers of biomass

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 First of all students are asked to consider why not all of the light that falls onto a plant will be used in photosynthesis. Students can think > pair > share their ideas in their books. Once complete the following slide goes through the possible ways in which light energy can be lost before it used to make new plant biomass. Students will listen and then need to fill in the blanks on a paragraph detailing these processes. Once this task is complete students can self-assess their work. Students are then shown a simple food chain and asked to think about how biomass could be lost at each stage in the food chain. Pupils can discuss their ideas and create a mind map in their books, why isn’t all of the biomass from trophic level passed on to the next trophic level? The next slide reveals some of these reasons, pupils can check their work against the answers. Pupils will then be given a worksheet detailing energy loss and energy transfer criteria, students need to use this information to annotate a food chain to show how energy is lost and how much is transferred to the next trophic level. There are a number of ways in which they may do this but there is a sample answer provided to demonstrate how the student could have completed their work. The last part of the lesson looks at efficiency of energy transfer, pupils will be shown the efficiency calculation and a worked example. Pupils can write the calculation into their books and then use this to answer a set of questions. Once complete pupils can self-assess their work. The plenary task is for pupils to turn to the back of their books and write three summary sentences on what they have learnt this 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 :)
