NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – The importance of communities

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – The importance of communities

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 The first task involves pupils discussing the definitions for a set of ecological terms, pupils can write their ideas down in their books and then watching a video to fill in any blanks they were unsure of. Once this has been completed pupils can self-assess their answers using the mark scheme provided. The next task is for pupils to think > pair> share about how animals are interdependent upon each other, they can write down their ideas as a brain storm in their books. Once this has been completed, pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. Pupils will then be given some information on stable communities, they will need to read this information in pairs and then try and answer a set of questions. They can then self-assess their work, correcting anything they didn’t get correct using the answers provided. Pupils will now be introduced to the difference between abiotic and biotic factors, the first task is for pupils to watch a video and sort the factors demonstrated in the video into two columns – abiotic vs. biotic. They will then be given a set of descriptions, pupils will firstly need to identify which factor is for a list provided and the second task is for pupils to identify whether this factor is biotic or abiotic. Pupils can complete this on the worksheet provided, once completed students can either self-assess or peer-assess their work, making any corrections if necessary. The plenary task is for pupils to choose two organisms from the pictures on the PowerPoint slide, they will need to describe the difference in habitats between the organisms and compare the abiotic and biotic factors which affect their survival. 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 – New systems of classification

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology – New systems of classification

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 This lesson begins with an introduction to evolutionary trees, pupils will be shown how to interpret evolutionary trees and understand the common ancestry between species of organisms. Pupils will then be shown the difference between convergent and divergent evolution. The next part of the lesson will focus on the work of Woese et al, pupils will watch a video and try to answer questions about Woese and his work, this can be assessed using the answers which can be revealed once the video has been watched. Pupils can then watch a second video, using this video they will then try to complete profile cards for three domains as proposed by Woese – archaea, bacteria and eukaryotes. Pupils can again check their work against the answers provided in the PowerPoint slide. Pupils will then be given some information on Woese and his work, students will need to use this information along with what they have learnt so far in the lesson to complete a newspaper article on his work and infamous discovery. The next part of the lesson looks again at evolutionary trees, pupils are shown how to use an evolutionary tree to compare the relationships between organisms. Pupils will then need to complete an exam-style question on evolutionary trees, which can be self-assessed using the mark scheme provided. The plenary task is for pupils to come up with questions for a set of answers. 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 :)

Charles Darwin Natural Selection, Unit plan, Guided Note packet, and Animated PowerPoint

Charles Darwin Natural Selection, Unit plan, Guided Note packet, and Animated PowerPoint

his is an update of my previous lesson. Everything is included plus a lot more. Please check the preview to see the new additions I have added. Thank you for making this the top selling Charles Darwin product. Updated to include 28 pages of activities and interactive lesson supplementary aides. Summary of what to expect: This is a four day engaging constructivist lesson that focuses on the life of Charles Darwin and his innovative and successful idea of natural selection. Natural Selection can be easy to understand with students at a secondary level, but it is difficult to master. This lesson plan not only introduces the topic of natural selection, but allows students to actually discover it on their own the same way Charles Darwin perceived it. In the first two days, students will take a voyage on the HMS Beagle to the Galapagos Island where they will encounter different species of finches. They will log in their journals what they observe on this island. In short, they will draw, tag, bag, and send the different specimens of finches off to England for review just as Darwin did himself. The idea is to teach students that species change and do NOT stay the same as generations pass. In the second two days, students will learn on their own how natural selection works through a interactive competition activity. This is a classwide event which can be crafted differently based on the diversity of each class. Through this competition, students will learn how the most suitable characteristics (beak of the finch) will survive in the current environment that allows those characteristics to prevail. Students will compete in different environments which consists of dry land, flash flooding, and at night. I also encourage you to utilize my unique style of notes as it is designed to integrate authentic and ongoing assessment throughout the content phase. I hope you enjoy this lesson as it took me approximately 80 hours to create. Other science teachers have used this lesson to introduce evolution in their classrooms and has been used as a template to help science teachers create lessons that are differentiated to meet the needs of diverse student learning styles at a science teacher conference day. Students will really get the concept if you go through this activity with them.
