AQA new specification-B2-Cauliflower cloning practical

Aims In this activity students will use an aseptic (sterile) technique and a small part of a cauliflower ‘flower’ to clone and create an entirely new plant. Learning outcomes After completing this practical, students should be able to: • state why plant clones are genetically identical to each other • explain how using tissue culture creates a clone of a plant • explain why it is easier to clone a plant than an animal • explain and carry out a practical accurately and safely in order to successfully clone a plant. Specification references: B1.1.4 Cell differentiation B1.2.3 Stem cells

Vaccinations, advantages and disadvantages. The spread of pathogens. Complete KS3 Biology lesson.

Complete and ready to use high quality KS3 Biology lesson by Barclayfox. All resources are included in this excellent lesson, there is nothing for you to do but deliver it ! OUTCOMES - STUDENTS LEARN TO: * Describe how a person develops immunity. * Explain how vaccinations work. * Compare the advantages and disadvantages of vaccinations. * Investigate the spread of a pathogen by doing an experiment. * Analysing the meaning of the experiment. STARTER Pupils will start the lessons by thinking and working in pairs in a race to name as many of the body's defences against infection as they can. This leads to revealing the title and lesson outcomes and then students think more deeply as they self-assess against their current understanding of this topic. MAIN and MAIN and MAIN... This lesson is 'chunked' into discrete sections to support learning and create positive behaviour by keeping students interested and focused. There are various interesting student activities such as a practical experiment, gap fill, matching, literacy activity, questions with answers, recall, think/pair/share, quiz, self-assessment and peer assessment opportunities, up and about game etc. PLENARY In the plenary activity pupils complete a gap fill activity to uncover how much they have learnt during the lesson. Next they self assess and reflect on their progress against the lesson outcomes. Students who need further support set themselves additional homework to enhance the learning in today’s lesson. EXTENSION ACTIVITIES A good variety of extension activities are provided just in case any group you teach requires them.

new AQA B2.1 Cell division

I used this ppt for EAL and foundation learners, some key slides have translations into Arabic, polish, and Romanian, it is mostly from online translate tool so may not be the most accurate but the learners with low level English find it useful to help them access the work
