Anaerobic respiration - GCSE

Anaerobic respiration - GCSE

A fully- resourced lesson which looks at the chemical reaction that is anaerobic respiration and ensures that students can understand why this form of respiration can only be used for short periods of time. The lesson includes an engaging lesson presentation (39 slides), a newspaper article and application questions. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recall information about aerobic respiration to recognise that the sole reactant of anaerobic respiration is glucose. A newspaper article about two atheletes from the 10000m race has been written to challenge the students to recognise why one of the athletes wouldnt be able to compete again in the near future whilst the other could. As a result, students will be introduced to lactic acid and will learn how this poisonous substance prevents muscle contraction and causes cramps. Time is taken to ensure that students are familiar with ATP and specifically that they recognise that a much lower yield is produced in this type of respiration. A perfect opportunity is taken to get the students to carry out a mathematical calculation to compare the yields. Oxygen debt is discussed and related back to the original newspaper article. Finally, anaerobic respiration in plants and yeast is considered in terms of fermentation and the word and symbol equation is written so that it can be compared to those from animals. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson to allow the students to check on their understanding. The lesson has been written for GCSE students but could be used with higher ability KS3 students or A-level students who want a recap before covering the topic in greater detail on their course.

Questions Project

Questions Project

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes a project out of question making. It is fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts. The differentiation opportunities are vast, these can be either by outcome or role allocation (e.g. captains will develop their leadership skills and may be the more able in the group). As stated at the start, it is linked to all levels and types of curricula, standards and specifications. My tip is just to try it out! This resource was prepared by Class Monitor, a secondary school science teacher and senior leader with two decades of experience in education. Class monitor has worked across three countries, has a post graduate qualification in PSHE qualification and an MA in education, find out more and get more ore resources at www.classmonitor.co.uk.

Polyprint project A-Z nature Angie Mitchell Ernst Haeckel- KS3 class fabric wall hanging

Polyprint project A-Z nature Angie Mitchell Ernst Haeckel- KS3 class fabric wall hanging

This is a key stage 3 project where students do a polyprint on fabric using printing inks. This is a short 6 week project but could be developed to incorporate embellishments and sewing skills to fabric. I did this with year 8 and it took 6 weeks. Student enjoyed the outcome and it could have been made into a cushion for each student but we made a class fabric wall hanging. (There is a second Powerpoint in a Bundle which has all the pictures used for students to work from - A-Z of nature pictures) Artists used: Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel Resources required Polyprint blocks Printing ink Rollers Tables to roll out on Fabric square per child Paper for test prints Research sheet for drawings and artist research. Project schedule 6 weeks The resources for the students to work from. Each student chooses what they would like to draw. The steps to take while making the print and examples of student’s outcome. Students begin by researching Angie Mitchell and Ernst Haeckel and make up a sheet with these two artists and their drawings. The drawings they do of one of the pictures of the slide pictures of animals and bits of nature from A-Z. Students choose which animal or fish or plant they would like to draw. Students spend time doing a detailed drawing and design a border pattern for this work in black and white. Success criteria of drawings To use fine lines and to capture quality detail To concentrate on negative and positive shapes To develop a border pattern from nature around the drawing To try to layer up your drawing with foreground and background shapes The students drawings are then photo-copied and transferred to the polyprint block. Students use the photocopy to press through onto polyboard. The students are given a square and a strip of polyprintboard . Students first of all experiment printing on paper with their design and border. Students can do a black and white print or do a polyprint print of two colours overlaying their inks. The slide presentation gives you also opportunities for reflection and evaluation of outcome at the end. I have presented my artists in my book I have compared the works of 2 nature artists I have written a short paragraph on the style of artists I have a careful line drawing of my subject I have created my own artwork based on my research of subject colour I have a plan for my print design and have written about relief printing I have tested working with polyprints Student outcome is a wall-hanging and we sewed all the students outcomes together to make a fabric collage of squares.

Minesweeper Plenary end of lesson game

Minesweeper Plenary end of lesson game

End your lessons with a bang ! Use this game as a plenary activity. This can be used for any subject and any year. E.g. MFL – translation of vocabulary Maths – answers to sums. History – dates, facts I personally have used it for pupils to translate vocabulary covered in a topic, scaffolding questions, starting with single words and then building up to more complex sentences. How to run the activity: Split the class into two groups or more. Teacher asks a question to each group. Teacher selects by hands up (or miniwhiteboards, or team discussion). Teacher selects a pupil to give the answer. If the answer is correct – pupil can choose a mine. If there’s a coin under the bomb - one point for your team If there’s an explosion under the bomb - lose one point If there’s a super bomb - the rubber duck of the evil clown - lose 2 points. The team with the most points wins!
