This updated Biology resource now has individual graded questions to assess students levels. It is used with KS4 and is designed to ask questions on Working Scientifically and the Maths calculations that are involved. These exam style questions with model answers are adapted from AQA past papers. They are normally used post practical as assessment/revision/homework, but can be used during as well or a cover lesson.
This contains all the Required Practicals in Biology in one place: Osmosis, Decay, Enzymes, Field Investigations, Food Tests, Microbiology, Photosynthesis, Plant Response and Reaction Times.
It also includes the Required Practical Graphic Orgainser helpsheet (worth £1) that will help the students answer the questions in these resources.

Each required practical resource comes as a 5 Power Point slide to project in lessons and a PDF version for printing. It has two sheets of questions and two sheets of answers allowing for students to self or peer assess. On the top right hand corner of the sheet the students can identify areas where they need to improve so that teachers can easily see which section they are having trouble with.
Each sheet assesses students skills including interpreting the data, calculations, remembering the Health and Safety and suggesting ways of improving the experiment.
Key concepts covered are types of error and rarer ones such as validity, reproducibility and repeatability.
Each question slide has Blooms Style Learning Objectives for whole class focused learning.
