Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Edexcel GCSE 9-1 Combined Science Biology Progress Sheets

Progress, RAG style, learning outcomes sheets for use with all the Edexcel Combined Science Biology topics. I created these over the summer break of 2017, along with other additional resources to support my students that are now in year 11 who have had to go from starting the old GCSE to the new style GCSE. Although, I have already used these along with the others of chemistry, physics, separate chemistry and my KS3 sheets that I created at the same time, with all 10 of my classes this academic year and I have received such positive feedback from all my students and other staff who have also now began to use them and seen such a positive result. I give the relevant sheet to the students at the start of a topic and then at the start of each lesson, after the starter/walk in task, I have the relevant outcomes for that lesson from the list on a ppt slide for them to identify on their sheet whilst I'm taking the register, to read through and ask themselves how much do they know of it already and then to ask themselves again at the end of the lesson. So the students feel its beneficial to have the outcomes in writing and for them to have to really think about them at the start rather than just listen to me reading and pointing them out. To then visually see for themselves if they feel that they have taken something from the lesson and achieved the goals. Also they are finding them such a help when it comes to revision. Additional benefits include helping them track what they have missed if they are absent, so clearly know what they need to catch up on and to be able to open their books as a teacher and quickly identify from the colours where individuals are struggling or finding aspects easy, and during one to one chats being able to use it to talk through what they feel that they need a little more help on.

worksheets: food webs, pyramids of numbers and biomass, energy loss in chains, pesticides, bioaccumu

worksheets: food webs, pyramids of numbers and biomass, energy loss in chains, pesticides, bioaccumu

High quality differentiated KS3 Biology worksheets with answers from Barclayfox. These worksheets cover: Good selection of worksheets with answers, covering pyramids of numbers, calculating biomass and pyramids of biomass, drawing both, energy loss in food chains and webs, pesticides and bioaccumulation. Differentiated for the able and less able. Save yourself the hours needed to prepare a differentiated resource with answers as I have already spent those hours preparing this for my students and improving it over many years. There is nothing for you to do but give it a very quick look through and familiarise yourself with it and photocopy it for your students. As teachers we all work ridiculously long hours each week. Give yourself a break, spend some life with your wife / husband / children / friends / family by purchasing more lessons and resources created by “Barclayfox” once they appear on TES. Please note: when searching for resources please type barclayfox into the search box/engine and it will show you all our resources. Please purchase this resource and leave a positive review. Thank you, and happy teaching! Yours, Barclayfox.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Cloning

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Cloning

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Inheritance, variation and evolution' 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 introducing pupils to the definition of a clone and outlining the different cloning techniques they will learn about in this lesson. Pupils will firstly learn about two techniques used to clone plants - cuttings and tissue culture. Pupils will learn about these two techniques and will need to complete the correct descriptions on a diagram demonstrating the steps involved with taking plant cuttings. Once this is complete the work can be self-assessed. The second part of the lesson focuses on adult cloning. Firstly pupils are talked through the process of embryo transplants using a diagram. Pupils will be provided with a worksheet with a flow diagram of the embryo transplant process but missing statements to describe the process. Pupils will need to choose the correct statements to go in these boxes, this work can be assessed using the answers provided once complete. Adult cell cloning is the other example of an animal cloning technique pupils will need to describe. Firstly, pupils will watch a video about Dolly the sheep and the adult cell cloning process, using this video they will need to answer some questions. This can be checked against the answers which will be provided. For the next activity pupils will be provided with the diagram of the sequence of events involved in the adult cell cloning process, pupils will be required to fill in the blanks to complete the descriptions of the steps involved. Once completed pupils can use the mark scheme to assess their work. The final activity focuses on the risks and benefits of adult cell cloning, pupils will be given a list of opinions about this cloning technique and they will need sort them into advantages/disadvantages in their books. The plenary activity is for pupils to pick a task: either write a twitter message about what they have learnt this lesson or unscramble anagrams to spell out 5 key words from the 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 GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Selective breeding

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Selective breeding

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Inheritance, variation and evolution' 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 task begins with pupils being asked to think > pair > share the specific characteristics that farmers might find favourable in cows, crops, chicken and sheep. The next activity involves pupils watching a video on selective breeding and how this process works, pupils will need to answer questions as they watch the video. The work can be assessed when they finish using the mark scheme provided. Pupils will now understand the process of selective breeding, the next task requires pupils to choose two dogs from a selection of dog breeds (pictures provided) to breed together in order to produce offspring with the traits the student would like. They can sketch a flow diagram to demonstrate how thus process occurs. The next activity is a worksheet on chicken breeds, once students have completed they can use the mark scheme to self or peer assess their work. The final activity focuses on the problems with selective breeding, pupils are provided with some information which could be tag-read as a class. This can then be used to answer some quick-check questions. Once the questions are complete this work can be self-assessed using the answers provided. The plenary task is for pupils to use a list of key words to write a summary sentence about what they have learnt from the lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation.
