ASDAN CoPE 12 Module Bundle

ASDAN CoPE 12 Module Bundle

A collection of the 12 modules required to compete the ASDAN CoPE Award. The following resource is intended to be used alongside the official ASDAN CoPE Student Book and in no way replaces this resource. The following pages can be used as a teaching aid or as direct worksheets for students to use. It should be noted that the ASDAN CoPE course also requires a number of skills sheets, these are not included in this pack as they are in the official student book. Level 2 notification: The level 2 course requires a higher level of independent work and so resources would need to be used as teaching guidance rather than student worksheets.

Natural Selection of Bird Beaks Galapagos Game for Evolution Lessons

Natural Selection of Bird Beaks Galapagos Game for Evolution Lessons

This is a fun game I designed for my Year 8 students to help them understand how natural selection works, but it can be used just as well at GCSE. All instructions are included in the Powerpoint alongside a spreadsheet for results and tables for student results. I have used this with classes of all abilities and it has helped a lower ability Year 8 set answer GCSE level questions.

Schoolyard Ecosystem Sampling

Schoolyard Ecosystem Sampling

During this lesson students explore how to survey school ecosystems through quadrat and transect sampling. Students begin by walking around the school identifying biotic features of the school yard. They then work in groups to construct quadrats and transects, and survey organisms identified during the walk in these quadrats and transects. Students then use the data they have collected to create a food web of the school yard ecosystem, and to speculate about the health of school yard ecosystems and how they could improve the health and sustainability of these ecosystems. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Ecosystem Connections

Ecosystem Connections

During this lesson students investigate the structure of ecosystems, including trophic levels and biotic and abiotic elements. Students begin by refreshing their understanding of key ecosystem terms, and then observe and record the biotic and abiotic features of their school yard ecosystem. They then participate in a group activity around a wetland ecosystem, looking at how this ecosystem responds to various scenarios. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Dichotomous Keys

Dichotomous Keys

During this lesson students explore dichotomous keys as a means for identifying and classifying living things. They begin by observing living things in the school yard. Following an introduction to dichotomous keys, students will create a key for living things found in the school yard. Finally, students will use an invertebrates key to identify invertebrates in the school yard and then create a poster/booklet about school mini-beasts. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Conservation Careers

Conservation Careers

During this lesson, students investigate the role of knowledge of our environment in jobs both now and in the future. Students begin by exploring the need for green jobs (why we need people to have green jobs) and what some current green jobs might be. Students are then asked to imagine some green jobs of the future, what the job descriptions of these jobs would be and how these jobs would help to protect, conserve and care for our environment. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Classification Of Living Things

Classification Of Living Things

Students tour the school grounds investigating how living things are classified based on similarities and differences in observable features. They learn how scientists use a hierarchical system of classification, and how living things can be classified into Kingdoms based on their features. Students use creative thinking to invent an organism and give it a scientific name. They then classify their organism based on its physical features. Finally, students are asked to speculate on the conservation status of their organism and to make recommendations about how this organism can be conserved and protected. This lesson is designed to be taught outside. By spending time outdoors and connecting to nature, students are more likely to care for and conserve nature as adults.

Make The Connection

Make The Connection

In this activity, students are asked to research an animal species that lives in their area. They are to construct a mini Muir web that explains the integration between their chosen animal and other aspects of the natural and human influenced environment. Their diagram will show how this animal fits into its ecosystem, the impacts on the ecosystem, and what might cause it to become extinct.

AQA Year 12 Biology revision Monopoly

This resource was adapted from the Monopoly template: Used in the AQA A-Level Biology specification for the year 12 round up. This game can be played in class or as revision using the rules stated on the board. Students work their way though the specification as they move around the board, learning key facts, completing structural drawings of key components and touching on some lab contents including statistics and variables. The game is easy to download on a power point presentation and once created can be used over and over again.

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Food production

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Food production

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 asked to come up with a food chain for humans eating rice, then humans eating chickens and to consider the differences in energy efficiency between the two. This then leads onto the second slide which explains how shorter food chains mean more efficient food production. The second task is for pupils to think > pair > share ideas about methods farmers could employ to ensure animals gain new biomass at an efficient rate. Once pupils have written their ideas down in their books the answers can be revealed on the PowerPoint, students can check their work against the answers and correct anything they need to. The methods listed on the PowerPoint have disadvantages, pupils should then have a short discussion in pairs of what these negatives are before they are revealed. The next part of the lesson focuses on fish stocks, students are given some information and are asked to consider how we might sustainably manage fish stocks. Once students have some to discuss as groups and then as a class, pupils are given a set of questions they will need to answer whilst watching a video. Once this is complete students can self-assess their work. The last part of the lesson focuses on biotechnology in food production. Students will be given some information sheet in their groups and should use this information to answer a set of questions, once pupils have completed these questions they can self or peer-assess their work using the mark scheme provided. The very last task may be more suited to higher-ability classes. Pupils will be given a set of jumbled up sentences, students need to place the sentences in the correct order to describe the process of making mycoprotein, students can assess their work once complete. 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 :)
