13.4 DNA and the genome GCSE (Grade 1-9) Biology

This resource is designed for the new AQA GCSE (Grade 1-9) Biology specification. Everything you need is within the powerpoint - just print the worksheets from there, but I’ve also included the activities as pdf files in case you prefer to print from individual files.

It includes several different activities to cover the following learning objectives:

  1. Recall that DNA is the material of inheritance (Grade 4)
  2. Describe what a genome is (Grade 6)
  3. Explain applications for genetics (Grade 8)

There are extension activities included and all activities come with a mark scheme/crib sheet or marking guidance for self or peer assessment.
