Ecosystems and Quadrats Whole Lesson KS3

Ecosystems and Quadrats Whole Lesson KS3

This resources encompasses a whole lesson on ecosystems and quadrats. It is especially useful as there is no outdoor field work required, so handy for rainy days and difficult classes too. There is a lesson presentation as well as printable worksheets included within the powerpoint. Students can use paper quadrats and paper fields to practice quadrat sampling. I have used this on a lesson observation and it was most successful.

Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis

No other chemical process is as crucial for the existence of life as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy. This Mini Lecture deals with the basic processes taking place in the chloroplasts of plants with lecture snippets of John Walker, Hartmut Michel, and Steven Chu.

Science end of year quiz

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don’t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Rates of decomposition

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Rates of decomposition

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 Pupils are firstly given some information, in pairs, on how temperature can affect the rate of decay. They are asked to read through the information and complete a set of questions. Once this task is complete pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is for pupils to think > pair > share ideas about how you could stop or delay the decay process with food. Some images are provided on the PowerPoint slide as a prompt to help students, they can also use the information from the first task to help them come up with ideas. Once pupils have been given time to write their ideas down you can discuss as a group and then reveal the 5 main ways in which foods can be preserved. Pupils will then be given a set of information about each of these preservation methods, they need to use this information plus the information from the first task they completed to explain how each of the methods helps to prevent or delay the decay process. Pupils can then self or peer assess their work once complete. For the next task pupils are asked to use information posters places around the room or on their tables to answer a set of questions about decay & recycling. Once pupils have completed these questions they will need to assess their work using the answers provided. The very last task is an exam question that pupils can either complete in silence at the back of their books - higher ability - or perhaps use the work they have completed this lesson if they are lower ability. The plenary task is for students to write three sentences to summarise what they have learnt this 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 - The Carbon Cycle

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - The Carbon Cycle

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 part of the lesson focuses on outlining the importance of carbon within the living world, where we might find it in our bodies and the world around us. The first task pupils will be asked to complete is a mind map of the processes they think will add or remove carbon dioxide from our atmosphere. Pupils can discuss in pairs and once complete the answers can be revealed for pupils to assess their work. The next task is for pupils to watch a video about greenhouse gases, there are a set of questions pupils will be given which they need to answer whilst watching the video. Once this task is complete pupils can assess their work using the answers provided. The next task is a fill-in-the-blanks task, pupils are given a paragraph about the role of carbohydrates in animals and plants, they need to complete this using the key words provided. Once completed pupils can assess their work using the answers provided. Pupils will then watch a video about the carbon cycle which details the process involved, once the students have watched the video they will be given a worksheet which they need to complete using the captions provided on the PowerPoint slide. Lower ability students may want to complete this as a group & could perhaps complete whilst the video is playing to assist them. Once they have completed the task pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. The next task may be better suited to higher ability pupils, a set of cards images and captions are provided per pupil and they need to use this to construct their own carbon cycle in their books. Higher ability pupils may want to test their knowledge and turn to their back page to complete this without looking at their previous work The last task is for pupils to consider the future and how we may be able to implement strategies to help reduce our carbon emissions in order to combat global warming. Pupils are to discuss possible methods/strategies we could use and mind map their ideas in their books. The plenary task is for pupils to turn to the back of their books and write down a description of as many processes which contribute to the carbon cycle as possible. 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 :)

Science Museum Treasure Trail

Science Museum Treasure Trail

This activity is designed to get students to focus and observe the items in the Science Museum e.g. Watson and Crick’s DNA, the enigma machine, Stephenson’s Rocket, petri dish of Fleming’s Penicillium mould etc. Suitable for 11-16 years olds. Answers are included. I have put together 2 tasks for them to complete in teams of 3-4 students. The whole quiz/treasure trail will take ~2 hours dependent on the competiviteness of the group and the team working skills. Task 1: Students need to find the answers to 30 questions in various parts of the museum and complete the answer sheet provided. Task 2: Students need to take 6 team selfies by 6 different objects in the museum. The answer sheet needs to be submitted to a teacher and these will be marked and the group with the highest score will win a prize. The selfies also need to be shown to a member of staff at the end of the trip. Feedback was extremely positive from my students - 15 year old boys. They really enjoyed it and learned something too!

The Ghost Map Cholera Riddle and Map Game

The Ghost Map Cholera Riddle and Map Game

I designed this riddle to get my KS3 students using co-ordinates and solving puzzles rather than just being given the answers. The Foundation version requires less map work and focusses on analysis, the higher version focusses on students following the discoveries of Joghn Snow exactly as he would have done. A great lesson and homework fro key stage 3 or 4.
